Development of the business
HCA was founded by Lennie Harris, a Chartered Accountant and member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland. After qualification, he joined Price Waterhouse Coopers (“PWC”) and having gained experience working in one of the world’s largest firms, he joined a medium sized accountancy practice as an equity partner. In 1985 he set-up his own practice in the centre of Manchester. Over time he realised he was drawn to helping those difficult cases where clients needed to restructure their affairs. In 2013 the main stream business was sold so he could focus on finding answers for clients with disputes, debt or too much money. He has extended his expertise into providing forensic accountancy services and specialises in helping people with Proceeds of Crime Orders.

I was grateful for HCA Consultancy’s expertise, experience and negotiating skills. Involving a dispute resolution specialist was the best thing I could have done. It took away the stress, made sure my investment was protected and left me with a viable business opportunity.
A goal without a plan is just wishful thinking!

HMRC came me with a bill for tax interest and penalty liabilities of £120,000 and bailiffs were knocking on my door. Lennie Harris at HCA managed to reduce the liability down to £20,000 by challenging the makeup. He negotiated the lowest level of penalties and a small amount of interest with time to pay’ An agreement reached. He spoke to the HMRC officers at my door to defuse the situation. My wife was also concerned but in the end we were very happy with the result.
Your finances are always a sensitive matter. If things are not going according to plan you don’t want the world to know about it. Perhaps you’re losing sleep because you’re worried about creditors or concerned about a dispute with the authorities. Maybe you have had disagreements with former partners, business or marital. Or you might have too much money and it needs to be declared. It's times like these that you need a trusted confidante, someone who will listen without judging, without finding fault and who will find practical, affordable solutions for you. Finding answers is what we do. We’ve done it for many clients, small or large, for more than three decades. It all starts with a phone call and sitting down for an informal chat. We listen and discuss your options. Information you entrust us with will remain confidential and if any information needs to be shared with third parties (such as creditors, lenders or financial bodies) during any negotiations or settlement, this will be agreed with you in advance. The sooner you speak to us the faster we can help you to resolve your problems.
