You're too kind

During the past 18 years I have found Mercia Ireland very easy to work with and always very quick to respond to any questions. Throughout the years and through many regulatory changes I have chosen Mercia to work with because they were real people who listened to what we needed, and always gave pragmatic answers whilst remaining fully compliant. If you do the same, you will not be disappointed. I thoroughly recommend Mercia Ireland to anyone who is looking for professional and knowledgeable support.

Mercia have carried out our annual compliance review since self-review was introduced by ICAI as it was then known. They provide us with the objective assessment we wanted from the outset with timely and constructive comment when it is merited. We are confident that by meeting their exacting standards we will be well placed when our compliance visit comes again! Equally important to us is the ongoing support which is readily available when those tricky issues arise. For a professional, constructive and consistent compliance service we can recommend Mercia.
