Morris Crocker Chartered Accountants - Established 1890

From a small office just south of Guildhall Square in Portsmouth, Mr Howard B Morris set up his business in December 1890.  He was joined a few years later by Mr W H Crocker.  The two formed a partnership which still bears their names today.

Despite economic peaks and troughs and two world wars, Morris Crocker established itself as a highly trusted and reliable firm of accountants in the Portsmouth area. Over the years many well known local businesses have called upon our services; some have been with the firm a very long time.  It is largely thanks to their word-of-mouth recommendations and our own belief in building and developing long-term relationships that the firm continues to thrive.

In 2013 the partnership converted to a limited company to ensure the firm's progression and provision of continually evolving services. Morris Crocker remains independently owned and managed.  As director Kevin Gilbert explains: "Over time we have seen many local accountancy firms merge or taken over, becoming part of larger national or even international firms.  We have remained true to our roots and continue to provide personal and comprehensive accountancy and tax services to local businesses, individuals and not-for-profit organisations.

Attributable to the success of Morris Crocker is of course its staff.  Many of its 60 dedicated and talented staff were attracted by its enviable staff training programme and on qualifying have progressed to a more senior level. Attracting the brightest and best staff will provide an unprecedented service for clients and ensure the firm's continued success in the marketplace.

And of course none of this would have been possible without the loyalty and support of our clients.
