They are reputable and efficient and also friendly in the way they do business and I would highly recommend them to anyone searching for an accountancy firm that you can trust to do everything to the letter of the law whilst doing their utmost to ensure your tax affairs operate in the most efficient way possible. Sean has more than paid for himself over the last decade".Mr J Mowlem, JPM Sport Ltd
"We have used the Maidenhead firm of Chartered Accountants Hale & Co as our payroll bureau since February 2010. During that time there have been approximately 85 – 90 employees over 7 branches.
Nicola at Hale & Co has been very helpful and friendly assisting with anything that has cropped up. We have found the service to be flexible and supportive in particular willing to work around holiday leave within our firm to ensure the payroll has gone out on time."JW, Maidenhead
“Like many start-up companies, leadership teams can occasionally place too much emphasis on winning clients and delivering great service, perhaps relegating the fundamental financial needs of their new business.
But from the day we launched Barfly in 2014, Craufurd Hale made sure that our business was healthy and thriving, working alongside us to carve a trouble-free financial path. From fundamentals like cashflow management, pay roll administration and tax submissions, to more complex ad hoc financial needs, they have been a perfect partner.
We rely on Phil and the wider team to help steer the ship and we can not fault them whatsoever. Barfly simply would not be the business that it is today without them.”N Dudley-Williams & M Spurling Managing Partners BARFLY,
“I have been a customer of Craufurd Hale (formerly Hale and Co) from more or less when I first started my business over 16 years ago. I went to them in the first instance because the advice I was receiving from my initial accountant was not up to the professional standard I expected. I have no such worries about Craufurd Hale. While taking away the headache of basic accounting compliance they have also helped guide my business through the regular raft of other tax and legislative changes that make the process of running your business more difficult. I would have no hesitation in recommending them"Mr B Aldridge, Brian Aldridge Associates Ltd
"Chris has been my accountant for nearly 40 years, both on a personal front and for my company. From help selling shares in a business I co-owned, setting up a self-administered pension scheme for the company and me, preparing cash flow forecasts and personal tax to audit requirements, research and development claims and annual accounts, Chris has always been there for me and I value his advice, and the work his staff provide, greatly. I would happily recommend Chris and Hale & Co to anyone."RT, Maidenhead and Reading

"Although I am a Chartered Accountant myself, I have spend my whole life in the commercial sector and know that its vital to engage with people not only who have the detailed knowledge in specialist areas, but also have the humanistic skills to explain this to fellow professionals like myself. So it was very important to me, when considering who I trusted with my own funds, that they we treat me as an individual, understood my current and more importantly future requirements. I have been delighted to say that Craufurd Hale have fulfilled that brief."Mr M Sanders,
"I have been dealing with Chris Krol and his highly professional team at Hale and Co. for more than 20 years. I have found them to be pro-active, trustworthy, consistent, efficient and friendly.

"I have had the pleasure of entrusting my financial well-being to Haresh Raghwani for the past 5 years. My initial enquiry was with respect to investments and planning my retirement. Haresh handled that seamlessly and has continued to update me, check in and make sure the plans I have in place work best for me.
In addition, Haresh and his team have worked on re-mortgages for my properties and dealt with the same in an extremely efficient and friendly manner. There is never any chasing, I was up-dated every step of the way.
Finally, it is always a pleasure to talk to Haresh and I have been happy to continue to recommend him to friends who have also been equally satisfied with his services.",

The end-to-end service that they provide, from capturing and reporting our monthly submission to processing the payroll via BACS and us receiving payslips is accurate and very efficient. Their payroll capability is very professional and responsive and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them."DF, London
"During 2003/2004 I incorporated my two principle trading companies.
