Johnstone Howell, Chartered Accountants

Are you based in Cheshire, Wirral or North Wales and are seeking to work with an established firm of Chartered Accountants who enjoy an excellent reputation for the high quality of their work? Johnstone Howell & Co have had a presence in Ellesmere Port since 1929 when A A Johnstone first opened his office in Carnegie Street. Since then the economic growth and prosperity of the town, the Wirral and the surrounding areas have resulted in the creation of many commercial concerns involving a wide variety of activities and private tax clients who have relied on our support.

We are proud that we now act for clients not only in the North West of England and North East Wales but further afield who represent many business sectors including agriculture, contracting, health, manufacturing, retail and services.

We offer a personal service that is tailored to meet each client’s individual needs. Clients have direct access to our partners and senior staff and tend to form close working relationships which enable us to provide help and advice when needed.

We aim to guide our clients through the financial regulatory framework by providing advice that not only complies with the law and best practice but optimises relief for taxation and helps all clients meet their objectives.
