Business overview

Long established Tax Accountants and Advisers - based in and around Hayling Island

C J Driscoll Chartered Accountants was founded in 1982 by Chris Driscoll. Soon afterwards, the company became an established business in the local area due to the excellent standard of service that we offer. Aside from serving companies and individuals in the local area, our client base extends beyond Hampshire to the Midlands and the North East. We also work internationally and have a range of clients in France, Greece and even North America and Australia.

In 2012, Colin Clarke ACA, at the company since 1992 and Chris’ partner since 1997, took over the company. Since taking over Colin has maintained the successful ethos employed by Chris which consists of providing a service that is professional, friendly and personalized. The relatively small size of our team, and our emphasis on providing our customers with a personalized service, enables us to build strong relationships with our clients and it also allows us to create an in depth understanding of their business.

Excellent value for money

5
C J Driscoll have done my accounts and payroll for several years. I have always received excellent service; the staff are all polite and friendly and the accountants are very patient with me, explaining in a way that a 'lay person' can understand. Their fees are reasonable and good value for money, which is why I go back to them each year. Their office building is a little old fashioned but because they don't have 'flashy' offices they are able to keep their charges down. There is a steep step up to the front door and disabled access is via the back of the building - this is not very obvious and could deter some people. I would suggest they make this clearer - otherwise, I have no suggestions for improvements and would thoroughly recommend them.

Great support, efficient service

I have been delighted with the service I have received from Driscoll’s accountants over the last 10 years. Having the team at the end of the phone to answer my many questions has been such a help on so many occasions. My accounts and payroll have always been prepared promptly. I have recommended Driscoll’s to many friends over the years and they have all been delighted with the support and service they have received.

Unbelievably rude response to complaints. You would never think they are working for you.

We have been with this company for more than 10 years. When Chris was running it there was nothing that was too much trouble but since he has retired the personal service has disappeared, errors have occurred but when you complain about the service you're told that YOU are a poor client, having been late with paperwork over the years meaning they have to give us priority over others. I'm not sure how this is an excuse as Chris said there were always people who left their accounts to the last minute and the business was geared up to accommodate this situation. Well not anymore, inefficient clients (which we are now classed as) are now deliberately made to wait made to wait weeks for a response to e mails and phone calls.

You have completely mis-interpreted what was said in response to your your e-mail. I would have thought the fact that you were given priority over other matters when you provided your accounts information at the very last minute every year demonstrated that we are geared up for that situation. What was said was that we have to determine what work can be put off for a short time to accomodate urgent matters and if every client left matters to days before the filing deadline neither we nor HMRC nor any other professional firm could cope. It is strange that Chris has been retired over 7 years now and you have not raised any issue with our service until now and yet you intimate that you have been unhappy all this time whilst still continuing with us.
