The firm that became Weller Mackrill was set up by Sam Weller in 1995, initially in Kingsclere, on the Hampshire/Berkshire border, and from 2004 in its present location in Wootton St Lawrence, just outside Basingstoke.
After leaving school, Sam worked for two years and qualified as a Tax Officer for the Inland Revenue which, at that time, had a network of local offices throughout the country. He then went into the profession, working as a tax assistant for firms of Chartered Accountants, initally in the West End, then in Basingstoke. He qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser in 1980, and became the tax manager of the firm Norris & Company, where he remained until they were taken over in 1995.
Len Mackrill had worked with Sam in the early 1980s. He subsequently went on to qualify as a Chartered Accountant, and worked for various firms in Hampshire and Berkshire before coming full circle and coming to work for Sam in 2004, joining him in partnership a year later. As a partnership Sam and Len worked well together, developing and growing the practice over the next 10 years, before Len's early and tragic death from a brain tumour in 2016.
Luckily, Sam and Len had managed to recruit and retain a solid and dependable team of qualified and/or experienced accounts and support staff. The firm continues to offer the level of advice, assistance and expertise that our clients need, efficiently and at a reasonable price.
In July 2018 Sam was joined by Paul Sherrington, a Chartered Certified Accountant, who merged his existing Basingstoke practice Sherringtons with that of Weller Mackrill.
We have a mixed client base, although many are small one or two person companies. We offer advice and assistance with all aspects of individual and company compliance, for Income Tax, VAT, Corporation Tax, CGT, IHT, and accounts preparation for both HMRC and Companies House, payroll, statutory compliance for the Registrar of Companies, IR35 contract reviews and advice and, of course, the preparation of Self Assessment Tax Returns.
Our aim is to ensure that we expertly handle the compliance side of things for our clients, while ensuring that they pay the minimum tax they are legally required to pay.
