Between us we look after many clients in the local communities in Christchurch, Bournemouth & surrounding areas, and service businesses, small and large, across many sectors including:

  • the professions;
  • the service sector;
  • the construction industry;
  • manufacturers; and
  • retailers.

As well as general accountancy, audit and tax skills, our partners also have individual specialist skills, which enables us to provide clients with a first class service as and when required. With our wealth of experience we pride ourselves on delivering an unparalleled service to all clients, whatever their size or sector.

In addition to traditional auditing, accounting and tax services we also provide advice on how to improve and develop your business. Whether you need an integrated business strategy, access to corporate finance or specialist tax advice we are here to help you achieve your goals.


At Harrisons we aim to build a diverse and inclusive workplace, representative of our local community, where there are opportunities for all regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religion or other diversified criteria. We are committed to the principle of equal pay between men and women, and between ethnic groups, for comparable work.

Our current complement of staff comprises 55% men, 45% women. All of those staff who were university educated were the first generation in their family to be so educated.
