Welcome to Sherlock & Co
We are friendly, approachable, Chartered Accountants whose goal is to simplify the process of preparing accounts, preparing tax returns, and dealing with HMRC for our clients, so they can get on with running their business. We pride ourselves on using jargon-free language and explaining everything that we do, so our clients know that we are on their side.
Sherlock & Co are based in Ashton Under Lyne on the outskirts of Manchester, but through word-of-mouth and client-referrals, we have an incredibly broad reach; we not only look after clients throughout the North West of England, but as far away as Kent and Scotland too. We are confident that we can help you and to find out how, please call us on 0161 330 3067.
Sherlock & Co look after a wide variety of clients who own and manage all sorts of businesses; from Childrens' Nurseries to Dentists; Florists to Taxi Drivers and Heart Surgeons and Plumbers to MOT centres. Our overriding principle is to make sure that all of our clients' businesses are working for them; in other words, everyday we strive to ensure that our clients are one step closer to acheiving their business and personal goals.
"There's no point going to work or running a business unless you either love what you do or are well rewarded for it; we can't help you love what you do but we can help make running a business easier and we can make sure you keep as much of the profits as you're legally entitled to."
- Andrew McGain, Director
Business and personal financial matters
My wife and I have been with Sherlock & Co for over 10 years and in all that time we have found them very attentive, supportive, and thoroughly approachable on both business and personal financial matters.
We would highly recommend them.
Our best interests in mind when offering advice
We would just like to say, we have had James at Sherlock & Co for many years (too many to mention) and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services. They are always at the end of the phone to help with any enquiries and feel they have our best interests in mind when offering advice.

Accounting, payroll and taxation
SK Electronics have been clients of Sherlock & Co since 2010. We have always found them to be a very friendly and professional Team. They will always go above and beyond with their hands on help if required, including advice regarding all aspects of accounting, payroll and taxation.
Excellent Service from Sherlock & Co
We were a little concerned, when our Accountant retired, that we would not get the same level of service previously experienced. Such concerns were proven to be unfounded as we have received excellent service from Sherlock & Co. They quickly developed an understanding of our business and long term goals and developed effective working relationships with our key personnel. As well as providing timely quarterly Management Accounts and Year End Accounts, they have given invaluable support with Payroll Management, VAT, CIS and Self-Assessment returns. They have also provided excellent Tax Planning advice as well as helping us with the recent Reverse Charge VAT rules. In addition to this Sherlock & Co have provided timely and regular advice on the various sources of Covid related Government assistance. They are a pleasure to work with.
