“I have been a client of Horner Downey & Company for many years, enjoying a personal, efficient and professional service not only for my company and personal tax affairs, but also on the various occasions when I have needed specific expertise over and above the routine activities.
In all this time, there has been only one instance of fee increase which is well within competitive bands and which I find most satisfactory and cost effective when considering the time and effort saved in conducting my financial affairs, all of which gives me no hesitation in recommending their services.”

Allen Higgins, Higoco Ltd

I have always found Horner Downey to be very efficient, friendly and prompt and I trust them implicitly in dealing with my financial affairs especially the recent HMRC IR35 investigation. Throughout the whole IR35 investigation Horner Downey kept me fully informed and provided assistance and reassurance culminating in a successful outcome.”
