“I’ve worked with Chris Devereux-Cooke for over 12 years and have always relied on him for sound advice, professionalism and attention to detail. I can whole heartedly recommend him for a broad range of accountancy services, and look forward to working with him many years to come.


Chris Devereux-Cooke has been my accountant since 1995 and has always provided an excellent, great value for money service. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Caris Brook have handled our tax affairs for several years. Chris conducts business in an efficient, trustful, and friendly manner. I approached him after getting into a mess with my tax affairs and he managed to sort them out quickly, removing a great amount of stress from me. Since that initial meeting I do not even think about tax as he deals with everything and only contacts me when needed. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
