What people are saying about Maynard Johns

The straight talking accountants with the personal touch

Excellent service

Excellent service. Would highly recommend to anyone needing their accounts done.

Speedy and efficient

I am absolutely delighted with the way that you’ve sorted everything out for me so speedily and efficiently


I have used Maynard Johns for my business accounts for 14 years. They were excellent with initial advice when starting up my business and have proved invaluable since.

Edward has always been approachable and extremely easy to talk to. I relocated my business 45 miles away from their office 9 years ago and despite having other accountants nearer to me, I’d rather continue to use Maynard Johns.

Highly recommended

Always very helpful indeed, highly recommended 😀

Very impressed

We are so happy to have found and instructed Jane Maynard to do our tax returns for our holiday let. Jane also helped us with our split year tax return when we moved to Amsterdam.

We have been very impressed by her advice and professionalism. Communication is always very easy and we look forward to instructing Jane again next year.

Hands down, a proper Xero expert

Natalie Willian is Maynard Johns in-house Xero expert. Wow! Natalie is fantastic.

She quickly distilled all our Xero complexities and rolled out a suite of solutions to make our Xero integration as automated as possible – she recommended various apps to do this, helped with the setup from start to finish and offered ongoing support.

Natalie is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable and, in my opinion, puts Xero’s support team to shame. Hands down, a proper Xero expert – I wholeheartedly recommend her and her team at Maynard Johns – a 5-star business.

Highly efficient

Highly efficient and pleasant to deal with.

Very friendly and helpful

Fantastic group of accountants. Very friendly and helpful

Cannot praise enough

I cannot praise Jane and her team highly enough. Absolutely first class Accountants.

Couldn’t recommend more

Very efficient, leave no question unanswered. Could not be happier with the service we receive. As a company that prides ourselves on customer service we have very high standards. These have been met and exceeded many times. Couldn’t recommend more.

Nothing is ever too much trouble

I am delighted to have appointed Maynard Johns to handle all my tax affairs. Nothing is ever too much trouble, the level of reporting is always perfect and I am looking forward to working with Maynard Johns for many more years to come. I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone else seeking a highly professional chartered accountancy practice with also the human touch.

Patient, clear and helpful team

I have used Maynard Johns for many years. They have always had a patient, clear and helpful team who have guided my business through its various phases from startup company to employing up to 14 staff.

Found their approach and advice to be first class

We have used Maynard Johns for a number of years and have always found their approach and advice to be first class. We have grown and expanded our business portfolio over the last couple of years and through Edward’s guidance we have done so in a cost efficient manner.

We hope to continue the relationship into the future as we build our businesses and achieve our aims with financial prudence. We would recommend Maynards Johns to anyone else starting a business or existing business wanting good sound financial advice.

Like a breath of fresh air

Switching to Maynards was like a breath of fresh air. They are exceptionally responsive, easy to contact and talk to and have taken the stress out of our accountancy.

I have always found Jane Maynard and her team extremely helpful in all aspects of Company and personal accountancy. Always making sure that everything is filed on time. Giving me a very professional and personal service. I would highly recommend this firm for all your accountancy needs.

Saved me more money than their fees

If you want an accountant that takes the time and trouble to find out about you and your business and advise accordingly, look no further. The team are such a friendly, welcoming bunch and no question is ever too stupid.

When I first started my business many years ago, I was worried about the cost of an accountant. MJ easily saved me far more than their fees that I wouldn’t have done without their help.
