"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
