Most of our clients are based in South East England, but we also work with individuals, sole traders, partnerships, businesses and limited companies elsewhere in the UK and worldwide. We specialise in accountancy for the charitable sector including small charities and churches. We rarely advertise, as the majority of our clients are recommended to us via word-of-mouth.
What some of our satisfied customers say about us…
"I feel completely confident about my tax situation because John Helps does my personal tax return. He knows the best way to get whichever benefits I can apply for and deals with complicated matters like company car expenses. With John’s help, I know my tax paperwork is being done properly, efficiently and sent in promptly. He even sends me reminders in January and July to make sure I pay on time so I don't have to worry about it. Using John Helps as my accountant takes a load of hassle away from doing it myself."

"Skingle Helps & Co have been doing our books since 1960 (under their previous names). They are excellent to work with, providing a first class, professional and friendly service. John Helps provides advice and training in how to use our accountancy software, and does our VAT returns every quarter. His team is always available to resolve any accountancy matters – a service which you don’t always get with larger accountancy firms. They have become good friends as well. I heartily recommend them!"

"Fantastic! Brilliant! Well-liked! There are not enough words to say how good Skingle Helps & Co has been for our business! John Helps first worked with us seven years ago, when he handled the purchase of our business for us. At that time, he was seconded to another accountancy firm. The following year he'd moved on but we demanded John again and sacked the other accountants. John does all our end-of-year accounts and personal taxation. He's on call 24 hours a day to give accountancy advice – he’s fast, efficient and friendly, and has become just like one of the team."

"We approached Skingle Helps & Co five years ago when first setting up our business. John Helps advised us on our business plan to ensure that processes were correctly followed at set-up stage, as well as providing advice on correctly completing appropriate forms. We take care of day-to-day bookkeeping in-house, but Skingle Helps & Co take care of our annual accounts, payroll and tax returns. Any matters relating to accounting services we just pass over to John and his team. We lean on them for advice on the complexities of VAT, and find them very obliging at the end of the phone with any accounting query, whether complex or simple. We are very pleased with their services."
