Harris & Co have a long association with the motor sport industry. Phil Harris inherited an interest in all things connected with cars from his father Les, an engineer who used to go rallying at the highest level both nationally and internationally in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Phil started club rallies with Les in the 1970's and graduated to driving in the Lombard RAC Rally in 1987 and 1988. Phil is still the proud owner of a rallying Mini which is over fifty years old.
Through his interest in motor sport, Phil Harris has developed a wide range of contacts in the industry, many of whom are clients. These clients range through:

  • garage repair workshops
  • car retailers (new, used and racing)
  • corporate hospitality companies
  • driver management companies
  • parts manufacturers
  • vintage car specialists
  • radio and alarm installers
  • international race car drivers

Harris & Co have acted for several well-known national and international racing drivers.
Harris & Co thus have a first-hand knowledge of the motor industry's accounting requirements, both on day-to-day bookkeeping, payroll and taxation needs and for more specialist needs. These specialist needs include:

  • arranging funding for business start-ups, including racing teams
  • arranging funding for established businesses
  • providing financial advice for acquiring dealer franchises
  • providing financial advice for the sale of businesses.
