We measure ourselves by what our clients think.
Here are some of the things they say about our services…
"Mel and her team have looked after us incredibly well"
"We decided at the end of 2017 to change accountants, and we have not looked back! What we anticipated to be a stressful, drawn out and complicated process proved to be completely the opposite. Mel and her team have looked after us incredibly well and held our hands throughout the whole process. It has been smooth and transparent and in just a matter of a few months, the transition is complete and we are about to embark on some exciting new projects with a huge amount of guidance and support from Mel. Thank you all so much, we can’t believe the difference a few months have made to our fledgling business!"

"Communication: - I have never experienced anything like it, rapid, prompt and efficient communication. It’s almost instant, it’s as if there is someone there to assist you 24/7. Mel will even respond to your emails when she is on holiday with her family, “Bless you Mel”."

"Mel and her team have made starting my new business an easier process. Queries are answered quickly and nothing is too much trouble! There is always someone in the office to answer questions and offer advice. The team are professional and reliable to support you in every step of the way."
"I was confident that I had made the right decision with MCA"
“The thought of looking for an accountant was a daunting task for my small business but I knew that we needed one in order for my business to develop and grow. After a recommendation from a friend, I approached Melanie Curtis Accountants and met with Mel for an initial meeting. For someone who isn't good with numbers and all the accountancy jargon, I was pleasantly surprised how clear Mel made everything to me and I was confident that I had made the right decision with MCA. Mel and the team registered my business as a limited company and also registered us for VAT whilst recommending the best options along the way. Working with MCA is brilliant - nothing is too much trouble and they are always happy to chat things through and explain everything in detail. They also do a very good job of keeping me informed of all the new laws, legislations and HMRC news, which is great! I am so happy with the level of service from MCA, not only do I recommend them to friends, but also have the confidence to recommend them to my own clients."
I'm so pleased we found Melanie Curtis Accountants!"
“I really can't express how amazing Melanie Curtis Accountants are, not only do they have fantastic (and vital!) up-to-date expert knowledge in accountancy they also act with exceptional levels of professionalism and are always willing to help solve any problems big or small. The entire team and Mel herself are utterly dedicated to the business and will do their utmost to keep their clients happy. They are an absolute pleasure to deal with and make the accountancy side of the business a whole lot easier and a lot less stressful. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Melanie Curtis Accountants, they've helped transform our family business into the success that it is today. ”
“I just wanted to say Megan is a real credit to you. She has been very helpful to me the last few days. She is an asset to your business. You are very lucky!”
Worthingtons The Salon Ltd
"Greatly impressed by their friendly but clearly very professional attitude."
“I originally approached Melanie Curtis Accountants in 2010 when I set up a small sole trader business but decided, due to its simplicity, that I would deal with all relevant matters myself. I remember visiting their original office in Burghfield and being greatly impressed by their friendly but clearly very professional attitude..."

"The service is always friendly and polite and all the team treat you with total respect."
“Having started a new company for the 1st time around 9 months ago I was looking for an accountant company that would be able to guide me through the 1st few months as I had no experience with having a company. All the staff at Melanie Curtis Accountants are always at hand to help and guide me through certain procedures with a quick accurate response that takes the worry off my shoulders. I work closely with Megan Curtis who carries out my accounts and Julie Telford who carries out my payroll and nothing is too much trouble for them to sort out as quickly as possible. The service is always friendly and polite and all the team treat you with total respect. I would recommend Melanie Curtis Accountants to anyone who is looking for a great accountant company that is reliable and friendly.”
PTG Scaffolding Ltd
"I am impressed by the range of skills in the team at Melanie Curtis"
“I became a client of Melanie Curtis nearly five years ago (November 2011), shortly after setting up my Company. They provide us with a reliable service on payroll, company accounts and tax matters. The More software package they provide is reliable and flexible. I am impressed by the range of skills in the team at Melanie Curtis, and value the non-nonsense advice and guidance they provide promptly. They are good at giving advance notice of due dates, and very helpful during potentially problematic times, when they provide straightforward options and guidance.”
"Effective, knowledgeable & efficient service."
“We were looking for a firm of Accountants that specialised in small limited Company businesses & initially found Melanie Curtis Accountants in “the Directory”, (the little green book that advertises only genuinely recommended services).
Specifically, we needed to be able to put our trust in such specialists to enable us to focus upon our own core business. Since our very first meeting, we have been impressed by their very friendly courteous, & above all timely & reliable, professional approach, with great attention to detail. Our relationship has continued successfully for over 7 years now, so we would have no reservations in recommending MCA to anyone.”

"Great rates and with a team of willing and helpful people"
“Starting your own company from scratch is daunting enough and many people are often most concerned and intimidated about the legal, tax and accounting aspects of their new venture. After just one visit with Melanie Curtis she was able to put my mind at rest and deliver all the services and help I would need, at great rates and with a team of willing and helpful people behind her. Nothing was too much trouble, they were patient, knowledgeable and able to set up my new business in no time, taking away all the painful aspects like Company and Vat Registration, as well as Payroll and Bookkeeping Administration. My startup business has been made even more exciting as I feel I am in professional hands with people who have great expertise and experience. I have found a wonderful partner in Melanie Curtis Accountants Limited.”
"They are hands-on, efficient, and very easy to access"
“When I looked online and found MCA, I immediately knew I would be working with them. Why? Being a creative person, it is essential for me to have accountants who explain things simply. And that's what everyone at MCA does, with grace and goodwill. They are hands-on, efficient, and very easy to access. They answer every question I have and get out of their way to help me, however tiny my business is. I recommend MCA to everyone asking me about an accountant in the UK.”
"Worth their weight in Gold..."
“I formed my Limited Company in December, 2010 more out of necessity than choice. Up until I became a client of Melanie Curtis Accountants, it was a move I'd always regretted. But joining MCA means my business affairs are now being dealt with by competent, friendly, professional experts. MCA are worth their weight in Gold. I have recommended MCA to all my friends.”
"Helpful and approachable"
“We’d like to say a big thanks for all that you and your team do for us. We had lots of messy loose ends when we first came to you, but the team quickly sorted things out, and helped us trudge through all the accounting rigmaroles that our businesses required thereafter. Your team has always been very helpful and approachable, always acting speedily on our behalf, so please convey our thanks for this too.”

“We had been with our previous accountants for 20 years and had no regrets with our decision to change to Melanie Curtis Accountants Ltd. We have found Melanie a breath of fresh air. She is approachable with advice and explains things in a language we understand. We are sure that with the transition of time we will be in a better position with our tax liabilities now that Melanie has helped us change from a sole trader to a limited company. Keep up the good work!”
“We moved to Melanie Curtis this year after being with our original accountant for three years. We are in the process of expanding the business which created all sorts of queries. Melanie made the whole experience a very simple one and we now feel much more in control of our company. If you want someone to help explain the minefield that is running a company and in a way you can understand I would recommend Melanie Curtis Accountants 100%. Thanks Melanie you are a breath of fresh air.”
HAV Solutions Ltd
"A thorough understanding..."
“Running a business can be extremely demanding even for the most experienced multi-tasker. This is why I love the fact that I can pass on the serious duty of running of my payroll, the production of the Company Accounts and even my Personal Tax Return to Melanie and be sure of an excellent and personal level of service. Mel has a thorough understanding of my and my company's needs and this really makes me happy.”
Indigo River UK Ltd
"Professionalism and speed of delivery..."
“Changing accountants is something that one does not contemplate lightly, but having taken that tough decision at the end of 2008 and moved to Melanie Curtis Accountants Limited, I have been extremely pleased with the outcome. Circumstances were such that the timing of the move was less than ideal, but Melanie Curtis Accountants Limited managed the process in an extremely professional manner, turning around deliverables swiftly. It is these two attributes, their professionalism and speed of delivery, which for me have come to define the service they provide – along with a friendly, personable approach that ensures that they are able maximise their added value.”
P O Sullivan Consulting Ltd
"Prompt, friendly and helpful..."
“I switched to working with Melanie and her team having had a bad experience with another local accountancy firm. Fortunately Melanie and her colleagues have been able to provide the service I was previously missing – prompt, friendly, and helpful. As someone who is a numbers alien I particularly value their willingness to explain accountancy matters in lay terms!”
Perspectives Psychology Ltd
"Up and running..."
“We moved to Melanie Curtis Accountants last year, and at the time, Melanie recommended that I try her free software package, called More, which she assured would make my life easier for accounting purposes. I took the plunge and after a couple of quick emails from Melanie to set me up, I was soon up and running. I can't believe that I waited a year to try this, it was very user-friendly and Melanie was on hand to answer a couple of minor queries that I had. I was able to enter all our accounting information simply and quickly and this in turn produced reports to support our Business. I would recommend this package to everyone, it really can help to cut your workload and speed up communication between yourself and Melanie.”
R & W Delivery Services
"Attention to detail"
“Having previously tried the services of two other accountancy firms, I have been delighted by the level of service I have been receiving from Melanie. For me the difference has been the attention to detail and the pressure that has been taken off my business. With all the vagaries of taxation and accounting, I am confident that I am in the hands of an accountant that not only understands these but can also explain them in layman's terms. Included within these services has been the introduction of a new accountancy package, More. With its simplistic view of cash flow and accounting, this has cut my workload down significantly and has assisted with the effective communication of financial matters between ourselves. I would highly recommend Melanie's company if like myself you want to focus on the running of your business and leave financial management in the hands of an expert.”
Valeway Solutions Ltd
“We have been delighted with Melanie's thoroughly professional and friendly manner since we established our new company. Melanie always exercises great patience when advising us on matters that will help with the success of our business. We look forward to continuing working together with Melanie and her team, as our businesses continue to flourish, and whole heartedly recommend her to anyone who insists on the very best.”
