Lesser & Co have provided accountancy and tax advice to both Scott Knight and Dirty Harry's since 1990.
This enduring relationship has matured over 20 years + and has allowed Dirty Harry's to grow from a 'one-man band' (I originally sat before Stephen as a 21 year old on the Government's Enterprise Allowance Scheme during the 90's recession!) to a Group of Companies with a combined turnover in excess of £5.5 million per annum.
We have always found their advice to be sound and balanced.
Moreover - after 20 years as an entrepreneur - I have realized the benefit of an honest accountancy firm that offers long-term advice. Too many companies appear to offer unrealistic tax reduction or quick fixes. While taxation matters are not always the nicest things to discuss - I feel that Lesser and Co. have always provided us with firm but fair advice - delivered in an understandable and easy-digestible manner.
I feel comfortable saying that without Stephen's often 'fatherly' advice on taxation matters we would not have been in a sufficiently strong position to have survived the recent brutal economic downturn. Dirty Harry's financial strength and substantial retained profits - especially when so many companies leveraged themselves for quick returns - owes no small part to Lesser and Co.'s sage advice.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Lesser and Co to anyone seeking accountancy or tax advice.
My only hope it that their continued success allows them to keep their competitive pricing (at least for the next 20 years!)
