Engineering in Redditch
I first went to John and his team back in 2018. My previous accountants left my business accounts in a mess (after they dissolved their company without notifying me) and I was left with a serious VAT issue. I had several meetings with John and he stripped it back to basics on what I needed to do going forward and together we rectified the accounts. I cannot thank John enough, he is extremely professional along with Ricky who I deal with from time to time and Nancy from payroll is lovely! I highly recommend this company as they go the extra mile for their clients. 10/10 company and so glad I found them!! 17.02.22

Ultrasound Expert in Birmingham
I established my business over 6 years ago and have had experience of other accountants previously. John and his team are simply superb. Their professionalism, competency and conscientiousness leaves me with no worries associated with the accountancy for my business. What has really set John apart is that he is never standing still in his service to his clients. He is always looking to better what he can offer and he is embracing the latest software and tools to make his clients’ lives easier. Online accountancy software, smartphone APPs, John has provided me training and familiarisation both face to face and through his online videos and these have transformed my time spent on quarterly account returns. What used to be a full day in the office consolidating my business banking, recording receipts etc is now done literally in minutes pretty much as day-to-day business. It is fantastic and I cannot thank or recommend John and his team at Brotherton’s enough. 11.01.2020

Utilities Expert in Birmingham
We moved to John and Brotherton’s from another Accountant many years ago due to the time it took them to complete our year end accounts which could take up to 6 months for them to complete.

In those days we used a manual book keeping system and to not have our books for so long made life very difficult for us.
Also they managed our payroll and were always late advising when tax against the payroll was due.

When running a small business the one thing you don’t want to worry about is late payments to the tax office.

Since moving to Brotherton’s our end of year reports are completed promptly and our tax commitments are advised well in advance both of which are 2 things less for me to worry about.

We recently moved to Xero for the digital tax requirements and John was extremely patient with us and very knowledgably about how the programme worked. He is always happy to assist in training (FOC) and to offer advise

I couldn’t recommend Brotherton’s enough and would like to thank him for all his efforts on our behalf. 10.09.19

Engineering Consultant in Shirley
Brotherton was recommended to me just over 8 years ago when i needed an accountant to move from a sole trader to a ltd company. From the smooth transition to a ltd company, to more recently setting up a holding company and efficient tax planning i cannot fault John and his team. All are professional, friendly and approachable and take the time to answer any questions in simple terms. John especially has gone above and beyond, he has become more of a business/financial adviser over the years and his knowledge and expertise have been invaluable, recently handling a property transfer with my solicitor leaving me free to concentrate on the business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brotherton, they’ll look after you. 28.10.17

Motor Vehicle repair specialists in Bromsgrove
At 50 years old, self employed for the vast majority of your working life, and juggling not one but two moderately successful businesses you know everything there is to know about running a business, right? Wrong!
Just an hour with John and my entire business mind set had shifted. Six months on I am no longer ‘juggling’ but ‘running’ two moderately successful businesses. In the next six months I can see the word ‘moderate’ being dropped from that sentence.I wish I’d had that meeting with John 25 years ago! 29.09.17

“John has been my accountant for three and a half years now. He takes his role very seriously. He is professional and is always available to answer any queries I have no matter how small. He is meticulous in his accounting, he always goes through my accounts with me in easy to understand language. He has offered me advice on a range of issues. I am an extremely small company (there’s only me!). Despite this I always feel he values my company and that I get the same service that he provides to other, bigger companies. I’m glad I found John to manage my accounts…..I’ve heard some stories about accountants who haven’t managed accounts as well as they should have done but I trust John completely which is really important.

Bathroom Installations from Redditch
“Appointing Brothertons as our accountants coincided with a period of transition for our small theatre company. Two years after starting up we were taking the difficult step of growth which involves branching out into new areas, taking on an increased overhead and all the additional red tape-and uncertainty – that goes with it. John and his team have been nothing short of brilliant in guiding us into this transition. In addition to valuable (and sometimes revelatory) advice on our figures, he has provided crystal clear communication, time, and a genuine interest in making a difference for us. We’ve planned a series of management accounts sessions through the year and even after the first session, John was able to draw out some important indicators that will impact on how we go forward with the business. Based on our experience, I can’t recommend Brotherton’s enough.”
