What clients say


I inherited a very extensively run farm, in a state of serious dilapidation some years ago. I asked John Minford if he could help prioritise necessary projects in order to breathe some life back into the business.

He arrived on site to assess the problems, and we have worked together since.

Minfords take pride in their knowledge of the farming industry,and now their Agricultural Specialist, Victoria is always helpful in all aspects of the business including forward planning, Capital Allowances and Exchange Rates.

Minfords are a fine team. As a particularly grumpy farmer I do sometimes wish that they were not so bloody happy all the time! The good news is that a smile does not appear to cost anything.

Gwen and especially me are are really grateful for the extra mile you went for us this year. I could never have fought **** without you, saving me £50,000 has made a real difference to what I can invest in the business this year.

Please understand that your efforts will have a direct effect on healthcare in my little corner of the world. Ironic that **** would have ruined us but you have freed up cash to invest in healthcare.

After an unrewarding experience with my previous accountants, I was looking around for a new accountancy firm that would bring me solutions not problems.

I asked around for advice and the name that kept coming up was Minford of York who were strongly recommended. I have not been disappointed.

Despite the geographical distance, Minford are close to my business and personal needs and provide first class service as well as saving me a large amount of time and money.

With both my personal and business tax affairs John Minford Associates have provided clear, concise and helpful advice. If you are looking for a new accountant that is big enough to give high quality service but small enough to be personal, then I would strongly recommend them.

May I also take this opportunity to thank you and your staff, for the excellent service you have provided. It is great that you have all taken the time to have such a good understanding of our business and I always feel I am talking to a well informed friend rather than an officious accountant.

For me accountancy is one of the most difficult things to understand and you are always keen to simplify it for me as a ‘non financial’ person.

I would like to thank you for your prompt calculations – I have never been so happy with the service of an accountant before and am so pleased that I chose you.

Thank you!

We started using Johnny and his team back in about 2006, in a whole other lifetime when we were carefree associates. At that stage we were very well looked after and we are the kind of people that need a little push when it comes to getting paperwork sorted. His team would do the right amount of chasing to get everything in check for tax/profit and loss data.

In May 2010 we took the plunge and decided to leave our easy lives and crazily buy a dental practice. For two people who had never bought more than a car this was a serious amount of work. The team gave us all the support we needed, which was probably a great deal of hand holding at that time. Then 6 years on we are still here and business is going great. Minford’s are an integral part of our business, doing accounts, tax, book keeping and more recently working on business development. The business development has really moved our business forward with KPIs (key performance indicators) have allowed more business analysis, measurement and comparison working towards more profit and turnover.

Name me a dentist who does not want more profit and turnover!

We would highly recommend any dentist from associate to practice owner to use Johnny and his team for any accountancy services/advice.

Thank you for everything you and your team do for us at Southport Road Dental Practice.

I’ve always found Minfords to be a lifesaver. As a dentist committed firstly to providing the best care I can and secondly, and reluctantly, a businessman it’s reassuring to have an accountant with in in depth knowledge of the nuances of the NHS contract structure and the complex pension system. PCT can be difficult to deal with on your own so it’s good to have a strong team on your side.

We work in the film industry multi-tasking as actors, writers and now producers, with our own production company.

To say that things can get complicated is an understatement, but as we have moved forward into all these different areas, the guys at Minford have been there every step of the way with good advice and long term vision about how things should be structured. They have taken the time to understand us and our business and we wouldn’t trust our accounts to anyone else.
