“Phil Harris and Harris & Co were recommended to us by respected business acquaintances when we set up our first business (a sports marketing consultancy) in 2007.  Since then, I think we can only describe their service as excellent. Phil Harris has proven to be a trusted and perceptive adviser to our businesses, mixing commercial nous with genuine pragmatism.  Always easily contactable, Phil generally knows the answers to most questions that we put to him – and swiftly deals with those that need research! In the last five years, we have set up two further companies, both of which are looked after by Harris & Co, as well as recommending Phil to two clients.  The principle scope of the work is audit and tax but we do seek general business advice as well. I would always be happy to recommend Phil to small, entrepreneurial businesses like ours – I'm proud to have him as our adviser.”
