Headteacher at Gosford Hill School
“Gosford Hill School is proud to work with Ellacotts. Since our academy conversion in 2012, Ellacotts have continued to provide a professional and highly effective service. The staff are knowledgeable, approachable and deliver first class advice.”
James Johnston Trustee, Walton Estate
“Mark Dickin and his team at Ellacotts give an outstanding service to the estate. They prepare prompt and impressively clear accounting and financial information, always having an eye on forward planning as well as current cashflow needs and provision for contingencies. Mark and his team are also proactive and thorough in tax planning, particularly in connection with opportunities for land development. They help to keep the trustees' decision making focussed not only on short term tax considerations but also on the long term fiscal strategy for the estate. The trustees greatly value their insight and advice, and the human touch with which it is delivered is appreciated by the family. I have no hesitation in highly recommending them for this type of work.”

Ellacotts’ sound tax planning continues to allow me to focus on my core business and grow it accordingly.”

In addition to completing our accounts in record time, he provides relevant and valuable commentary on the financial position of the company as well as ad hoc VAT advice. Plus, by taking the time to teach us how to produce accurate financial reports ourselves, Derek has also saved us money on our fees.”

John Forkun
“I have referred tax questions to Alan on subjects as varied as capital gains tax to non-resident landlords and VAT invoicing to national insurance rates. His responses are prompt, to the point and he is always able to apply his technical knowledge and experience in practical and simple way to the matter in hand. He is also able to be proactive such as saying "What if ...?" to give me an idea of other options issues to consider and keep the tax bills to a minimum.”
Gordon Gilchrist
“Morag seamlessly demonstrated why my wife and I should have Lasting Power of Attorneys. I now understand how very important these are and why everybody needs them (although hopefully they will never be used !). She was very clear about what was involved and how much it would cost. I was very impressed with the whole process and carried out in a most timely fashion. Thank you.”
