Happy clients – it’s what makes it all worthwhile

As the old saying goes “The proof of the pudding’s in the eating!” and if that’s the case, it rather looks as though we’ve got the recipe right. Here are a few comments we have received from happy clients – it’s what makes it all worth while.

Elite Services are proud to be working so closely with Croucher Needham.  They have been completing our in-house bookkeeping, monthly wages, quarterly VAT returns, PAYE payments and Annual Returns to a standard you would expect from a top firm of accountants. For the past 5 years, they have allowed me and my business partner to do what we do best and expand the business. But the biggest thing that stands out is they actually care! Communication is fantastic, they understand our business, they are proactive in saving us money and they understand us personally as well as all the options available.

I cannot recommend them highly enough for everyone from the one man band to the blue chip company. Simon Needham can most certainly deal with anything I have ever thrown at him.

Lee Hanning, Managing Director, Elite Services (Environmental) Ltd


James is a very experienced commercial, technical and business accountant. High standards, real attention to detail, and the ability to spot potential problem areas within the business. He has a refreshing approach to solving problems, with excellent listening and interpersonal skills. First class Audit Partner and a pleasure to work with over the last 7 years.

John Jackson, Group CEO, Jamie Oliver Group of Companies


Paul, Simon and the whole team at Croucher Needham have worked closely with us as advisors, accountants and auditors since the business started in 2008, continually looking at potential improvements and tax saving opportunities.

The team are always available and thinking and acting proactively in order to help us maximise the profitability and tax efficiency of the business.  They understand the business and the related commercial challenges and thus come highly recommended.

Morgan Devereux, Managing Director, Hilton Vehicle Leasing Limited


At Brooks Bros we are very pleased to have been working with Simon Needham and Croucher Needham for many years. Previous to working with Croucher Needham we used a Top 5 firm of auditors and accountants and can describe their level of service as ‘purely functional’.

With Croucher Needham the entire team is dedicated to providing a first class level of service and is proactive in looking at ways and means of increasing the wealth of my business.  Simon is available at any time of the day to talk business and discuss issues.  A small matter like this is very important to a business owner and should not be underestimated. I highly recommend them.

Peter Sherriff, Brooks Bros (London) Limited


For the last 5 years we have worked closely with Croucher Needham and the whole team have made the running of our finance element as stress free and simple as possible, enabling us to concentrate on our core business activities.

In particular Paul has worked with us to structure our affairs in such a way that is as tax efficient as possible while also assisting us in successfully incorporating a new division and stakeholder into the business, taking into consideration along the way all parties’ interests, the possible implications and most importantly for us the costs and savings involved.

In reporting on our financial results and tax affairs, Paul has the ability to break down potentially complex issues into non-technical terms enabling us to fully understand the situation, clearly showing an understanding of our business and the areas that are important to us as business owners.

Croucher Needham show a keen interest in our business and our personal and business goals, enabling us to utilise their knowledge and expertise in making key business decisions.

The personal touch also means that we can express what we want to achieve comfortably and inevitably Paul will have a positive and practical input in making it happen.  Like having your own FD but without the payroll liability.

John Hayward & Steven Dicks, Directors, Monro White Hilton Limited


James will always get quickly to the crux of the issue, and provide high quality guidance on the options available. He combines high technical standards with considerable commercial astuteness. Whether it’s about revenue recognition, succinct presentation in the accounts or a tax concern, it’s good to have James Marchant on your side.

Having been a client for several years, I’d definitely recommend a conversation with him whatever your accounting, audit or tax needs.

Randle Slatter, Finance Director, Clear Springs Group


Croucher Needham has acted as accountants to Bedford Blues for many years with Stuart Bryans being our main point of contact. Ably supported by his team, particularly in recent years Elizabeth Moore, Stuart always delivers an excellent service to the Club.  Any issues or advice we require are always dealt with professionally, courteously and efficiently.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Croucher Needham and the Club Chairman has asked me to convey his personal thanks for the firm’s continued support of the Club.

Tony Sabey, Finance Manager


Simon, thanks to you and all you team for keeping my accounts and tax so organised and filed on time.  After 6 years, the savings you have made me have been amazing.  There is no question in my mind… If you can help someone like me, anyone else should be easy……”

Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock (ex-professional footballer)


We’ve been clients of Croucher Needham for some years now and are pleased to be offered this opportunity to express our satisfaction and gratitude for services rendered in the form of this short (and inadequate) testimonial. Simon, Jon and Paul have always been available to answer our every concern and query with a professionalism and expediency that these days seems hard to find. We never have to remind anybody of the nature and operation of our business as such information always seems to be at their fingertips (most impressive) and our regular meetings to discuss accounts or business ideas are as much a pleasure as they are helpful. We are particularly grateful for the time and expertise afforded to us whilst defending ourselves from a ruthless and protracted (and of course totally unwarranted!) investigation from HMRC.

Bob Harffey, Director , Abbey Villas Ltd & Student Heaven Properties Ltd


Thank you for all your help Simon in helping us develop our start up business over the past few years.  We know music, not figures! So for us to find someone we trust to take the pressure off our shoulders in dealing with all accountancy and tax matters is a god send.  Band Republic wholly recommend the services of Croucher Needham to anyone who wants to leave the accountants to get on with it. In the media and music industry finding a trustworthy, professional business partner who is very good at what they do is very important – thankfully in Croucher Needham we have found that partner.

Simon Hanning, Founder, Band Republic


I have now used Croucher Needham for a number of years and always found them honest, polite and effective in managing the breadth of my businesses. Through Paul Tucker I have a direct contact at a senior level within the company for any queries or additional assistance I require. They have been instrumental in helping me manage my tax affairs both personally and my companies and have ensured I have all the relevant information to hand. My accounts are always prepared within a very acceptable timeframe when I get the necessary paperwork to them.

I would (and have) recommend them as a company to do business with.

Knebworth Golf Club has worked with Croucher Needham for nearly six years. In that time they have provided an excellent service, with no hesitation in any query or advice that we have required.

We work very closely with Croucher Needham creating a professional working relationship. All work undertaken is completed on time with all the necessary advice and forward thinking required for Knebworth Golf Club to continue in a positive way.

The company is always available by email, phone and visits to the Club. They have assisted us with many projects achieving a first class result.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Croucher Needham for any services that they offer.
