We are Stuart Harris Associates, a firm of Chartered Certified Accountants based in Woodside Park (Finchley’s tree-spotted little brother) in North London. We’re run by our founder and owner, Stuart Harris, himself a Chartered Certified Accountant.

Stuart has been a practicing accountant for over 28 years and was previously a partner at N Harris & Co as well as at Nagler Simmons.

In the course of his career, Stuart has worked with a wide range of clients, from individuals to large corporations in a myriad of industries. He continues to act for a variety of clients as well as jointly contributing financial articles with his brother Leon (an international tax consultant) to professional and news organisations.

Finchley fees, big city service

With Stuart Harris Associates, you get all the benefits of working with a big city firm, but with a more personal service at a lower cost.

We always strive to ensure that our fees are both reasonable and transparent. Not only do we let you choose between an hourly rate and fixed fees, but we have a number of payment options to help you budget. What’s more, we offer an initial appointment absolutely free of charge.

At Stuart Harris Associates, we work to ensure that you know what to expect in terms of billing. We always inform you of our fees ahead of time and let you know in advance if there is an issue that may mean an increase in fees, so there are no surprises.

On the other hand, if we find that your work takes less time than expected, we’ll always reduce the costs accordingly.

What’s it like to have us as your accountants?

That’s a good question and one we get a lot. In addition to providing a professional service and expert advice, we’re always thinking of ways to offer more to our clients.

One of the ways in which we do this is by making the most of technology. Our IT systems allow us to deliver an efficient service and one which is able to make your life easier, such as by sending you e-reminders of tax deadlines.

We also believe that providing a great service is not just about numbers. From helping you find trusted advisers in different sectors to reminding you to check that your will is in order, we treat each of our clients individually.
