What clients say


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.

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.

So glad I found Minford on NASDAL. The whole team have really been supportive and helpful during my early years as an associate. Always prompt and professional. In particular, John, Michelle and Ethan have just been excellent. I think I would have panicked and missed my first tax return without them. Thank you!

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.

John and his associates provide an excellent accounting package. Accounts are delivered efficiently and promptly.

Specifically they have the advantage that they can render into lay language practice accounts, so that they are accessible to any dental practitioner.

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.

I have been a client of Minfords for around twelve years. During this period I have needed assistance in several matters relating to Self Assessment, superannuation, capital gains and some dental-specific issues, all of which has been dealt with quickly and competently. They offer a friendly and professional service and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending John and his team to my dental peers or other professionals.

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.

After stepping away from salaried service in Dentistry, the rules and procedures for income taxation presented me with much confusion and frustration. My position and accounts as a locum practitioner were not fully understood until I discovered Minfords!
John and Ethan were remarkable in their service, offering me flexibility with regard to my appointments and a dedicated service which presented my accounts and tax return with utmost efficiency.
I thank you for the significant tax savings and relief of my worry regarding compliancy with HMRC requirements. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.
Many thanks

Minford chartered accountants starring Johnny ‘the calculator’ Minford and Michelle ‘the reckoner’ Edwards! Use them… that’s all I’m saying. They are really jolly good at what they do!
Marvel at their approachable yet professional manner, be amazed that they make the dark art of accountancy understandable, be astonished that they answer the phone!
