Find out how we help business owners make more and work less


Our priority at Jennions Macken is to take the stress out of your tax and finances so you have time to concentrate on running your business. Here is what our clients have said about the service they receive from us:

We found Jennions Macken on the partnerships section of the Xero website - we were looking for a more forward-thinking accountancy practice who didn't just use Sage and follow traditional methods!

Up until Jennions Macken we had a partial solution, some work outsourced, some done internally. But we didn't really have any routine and often found that our day to day accounts would build up and up until it became un-manageable and there was a big clear out session. Iain and the guys improved the dynamic, we still do lots of day to day work in house but find that Jennions Macken are able to follow a much tidier routine to ensure month ends are completed and there is no back log. Xero is great for allowing this to happen without us noticing.

Aside from the day to day Jennions Macken have helped us to really use our numbers to our advantage, as opposed to just reviewing them months and months later when they're irrelevant anyway. From building a custom Profit and Loss, rule development for accounting treatment of items right through to establishing routines that allow our various sales and inventory programmes to work smoothly together.

What we like most is that it's more than just numbers. Jennions Macken pull together very detailed monthly sales information from our invoice data which allows us to make decisions and create new business processes. This supports our growth and ensures nothing slips out the sides without us noticing. The sales pack is constantly evolving and the skills they bring are simply not available to us in house.

Equally the training side of things is becoming more prevalent as we do more in house. Iain is happy to spend time with our guys to develop processes for management accounting, freeing up his time to focus on the data we need to continue to grow.

Also, the guys fit really well with the culture at Tea HQ - they're not the miserable accountants in the corner, they're liked and respected by everyone at Tea HQ.

We would absolutely recommend Jennions Macken. More forward thinking and business driven than accountants we've used before. Looking to find ways to use accounting data on a day to day basis to help strategic decisions and initiatives. Their understanding of Xero is also second to none which helps keeps the basics ticking over.

Our experience so far has been excellent. Looking forward to developing further as we continue to grow.

Jennions Macken was recommended to me by a supplier of mine, something I have been grateful for ever since. Having had a bit of trouble with a previous accountant, Jennions Macken have been a blessing and provide great value for money for me.
They are all very helpful and knowledgeable and nothing seems too much trouble. I have never been very knowledgeable on finances and its associated requirements, and Jennions Macken have taken the burden of VAT, Corporation Tax, Income Tax, payroll, etc. from me and made both my personal finances and my business finances so much easier and let me get on with running my business and my life.

They have also saved me money on many occasions. They always seem happy to respond immediately to my many queries. Their frequent updates, news-letters, bulletins, etc. are very well and clearly written and have been an added help in making the right decisions for my business. Given their professionalism, knowledge, and friendliness, I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a service which will help them personally and/or with their business.

Jennions Macken have looked after my company CSR Eclipse for over two years. They came highly recommended by St Helens Chamber of Commerce and are extremely helpful in all aspects of my day to day finances, especially during the early stages of my business, assisting and recommending new business start-up plans for all my business needs.

In addition to the above they keep me informed on all day to day changes regarding company legislation, they are not your normal run of the mill accountants. I trust them implicitly, they always come up with financial solutions for all my business needs.

Iain, Kirsty and Keith are very accommodating keeping me on track especially when it comes to quarterly VAT returns, annual accounts and other financial aspects of the business ensuring that all company deadlines are met on time.

They also undertake full control of payroll which is completed monthly by Kirsty. She is very professional, understanding and very knowledgeable in all areas of accountancy especially payroll which is a vital part of my business.

I am also provided with systems (IRIS Open Space) which allow me to view financial documents 24 hours a day such as accounts, tax returns and payroll.

Jennions Macken are trusted accountants who deliver a first-class service, I'm very happy with the services they provide and I would not hesitate in recommending them to all future and potential clientele.

Iain has handled my business accounting for over five years and I have found his work to be consistently professional and friendly. His approachable style combined with his secure knowledge about his subject helps to make the complex world of accounting easy for people like me. Iain is on hand to offer speedy answers and advice to those queries which occur from time to time. The company's fixed fee policy gives me confidence to know that I can be in touch for advice whenever the need arises. In autumn 2012, I was delighted when Iain accepted an invitation to use his financial skills as a board member with the international Insight Film Festival, which I direct. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of his company to anyone looking for a reliable, cost effective accountant.

Quite simply as a pharmacist I prefer to limit my mental resources to my prescriptions rather than my tax position. With Jennions Macken I felt instantly that I was in safe hands. Iain's relaxed yet professional demeanour means that if I have a question no matter how basic - I can ask it without embarrassment. And with being busy during the day the firm's use of technology and social media gives me ample opportunity to contact them via different means depending what I am able to access at any given time. Simply put they're there when I need them to be. And all on top of offering a first rate service too.

The type of support Jennions Macken are able to provide me with is so important to the success of my business. I am a seasoned computer consultant contractor; however with little knowledge of tax and accountancy. Therefore I wanted to be assured I can achieve a cost effective accountancy solution. Jennions Macken manages to achieve this without impacting on service they provide. In our dealings with Iain we have found him to be reliable, courteous, and there when I needed him to be. I would have no hesitation in recommending his company to anybody looking for someone to deal with their affairs in both a conscientious and friendly way.
