Unbelievably Helpful

Our past experiences with accountant firms had been awful with most being highly unprofessional and coming with very little support. Lesser and Co have been unbelievably helpful and efficient when dealing with our company affairs. Following the start of an HMRC PAYE Review that has dragged on of several years, Lesser and Co have been very supportive and their experience in this area has shown in how they have handled the case. I am not sure we would still be around without their support and advice, I can’t thank them enough.

Innocent, Company Director

Absolutely Outstanding

If you’re in the process of looking for a new Accountant, you need look no further! Stephen and Keith Lesser are extremely competent individuals, and their combined knowledge of taxation rules and regulations is quite frankly exceptional. Since appointing them to act on my behalf, they have advised me on several situations, and the results they achieved were impressive to say the least. Both Stephen and Keith are very approachable people, and their efficiency is commendable. I cannot speak highly enough of this Company, and would recommend them without any hesitation whatsoever.

Oliver, Company Director

Remarkable tax efficiency

I have worked with Lesser & Co since 1993 and recommended them to countless people. They are not the cheapest because they actively work to make you tax efficient. The consequent net savings are the best I know. For example an expected tax bill of £20k becoming £6k. Do the maths!

Chris, Company Director, Entrepeneur

Recommended accountants and business advisors for startups!

We can highly recommend Lesser & Co. They have been consulting us for over 4 years and always provided us with an excellent service. As an international technology company we feel confident they will continue to manage our finances in our best interests as we grow our operation.

Nissan, Company Director, Global technology business

Excellent accountant & advisor​

Everyone knows a good accountant can help your business sustain and grow. A good accountant is like a source of resources, opportunities, and understanding the various options a business have in the way it runs, and therefore what tax, pensions and saving can be done. Lesser and co are very attentive, approachable and they teach you what they’re doing so you understand and learn how your business finances operate. This leads you to take better decisions! Very pleased and will highly recommend to anyone, small or big.

Idan, Company Director, Restaurant Owner & Entrepreneur

Antonio Personal Tax Return

Keith L and Steve H at Lesser & Co sorted out my messy accounts, saved me a lot of money, gave me substantial guidance on the best way to do things going forward, and were delightful throughout. They also went above and beyond on a couple of things that weren't in their remit. All invaluable for a start-up navigating the murky waters of VAT... Read more

Manos, Company Director, IT Consultant

As an IT contractor, I have found Lesser & Co to be extremely professional when it comes to my accountancy requirements. However, what separates them from a lot of companies is there accessibility to be able to speak to you at anytime to give advice on key concerns or issues. This is somewhat rare in modern society.

I would recommend... Read more

When I set up a limited company for my freelance IT work in 2010, I knew i needed an accountant but didn’t know any, nor how to find a good one. Fortunately a former colleague who had also set up his own company strongly recommended Lesser and Co, so I contacted them - and I’m very happy I did.

Lesser and Co are based a long way from... Read more
