A Firm Foundation: Jack Ross Chartered Accountants 

One cannot talk about JacRox without first acknowledging its roots in Jack Ross Chartered Accountants. Established in 1948, Jack Ross has built an enduring legacy based on trust, precision, and ethical business practices. The firm has become an emblem of the old guard in accounting—a representation of the traditional services that have for years met the needs of businesses in the United Kingdom.

Very good service from the Jack Ross Team. They gave us good advice and completed a very efficient audit. They have a friendly and competent team. I would surely recommend them.

Brilliant service from the Jack Ross team in setting up several companies in very quick time, along with providing associated accountancy advice. Can recommend wholeheartedly as a leading accountancy practice with a can-do attitude.

Jack Ross has been my accountants since I set up my business in 2016. From the outset I was helped with advice, support and encouragement. I cannot commend them highly enough. Always on hand to answer any question and responsive to any changes in the economy which might concern their clients. I don’t have to worry about the financial side of my business as all of that is taken care of and dealt with by Umar and the brilliant team. If you are looking for a top class accountancy firm which maintains the personal touch they are for you!

I would recommend this account, knowledgable and helpful

We have enjoyed a solid and constructive relationship with JackRoss and Can highly recommend them for accountancy services.

We have been working with Jack Ross for over two years and the service has been fantastic. They have a great and knowledgable team who have taken good care of us and our accounts.

Meeting to review annual accounts and discuss future plans. Very productive as they definitely talk my language - on reflection probably the best such meeting in recent years. Many thanks Umar and Jamie

Jack Ross has serviced my Personal Tax requirements for the last 5 years. During some complicated challenges their advice was excellent and the customer service second to none and left me with no doubt all was in hand.

Following a recommendation, I have used Jack Ross for all my accounting needs (including payroll) since the inception of my business over 12 years ago. The relationship has been completely hassle free and I greatly value their service, which goes well beyond preparation of accounts. Their tax planning advice has been really helpful and I have always felt that they have ‘got my back’. Can’t recommend them enough.

We have finally found the Accountancy firm that we have been looking for! We switched over to Jack Ross towards the end of last year and from the very first contact to the recent submission of our end of year accounts the service provided has been fantastic and has easily exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

I have used Jack Ross as my accountants for a number of years. Their service is professional and accurate. They deal with queries promptly and I can always get hold of the person I need to speak to.

Jack Ross have been my family and business accountants and financial advisors for over 50 years. The delivery of services is second to none and i would recommend them to anyone.

Excellent advice and an understandable explanation of a very complex area of tax and corporate law which other (so called) advisors managed to totally confuse me. Thank you.

I have had a relationship with Jack Ross for several years and continue to be impressed by the proactive support and diligent advice received across the breadth of the firm. Excellent at signposting.

Holly Jones 14/02/2017

Jack Ross have acted for our law company for over 5 years and have been professional, prompt, and knowledgable in all aspects of our dealing with them.

What’s in a Name? 

While Jack Ross exudes an air of institutional authority, JacRox delivers a more dynamic brand message. The name alone—short, snappy, tech-savvy—signals a departure from conventional accounting services towards a more modern proposition.

Accessibility Over Traditionalism

Jack Ross Chartered Accountants may keep regular office hours, but JacRox pushes the boundary by offering round-the-clock accessibility. With JacRox, you can view your financial data at midnight if the mood strikes—try doing that with traditional accounting methods!

Security: A Shared Priority 

Both entities consider security paramount, but JacRox takes it a notch higher by integrating with Xero, which has an unblemished record in data protection.

Digital Versus Analog 

Jack Ross may maintain paper ledgers and employ face-to-face consultations as part of its service offerings. In contrast, JacRox thrives in a digital ecosystem, storing your data in the cloud, thereby making the cumbersome software and file cabinets a thing of the past.

In Conclusion 

JacRox and Jack Ross, while originating from the same family tree, have adapted to serve the needs of distinct business landscapes. Jack Ross offers the wisdom of years, a touch of the human hand in financial matters. JacRox provides agility, efficiency, and the promise of technological innovation.

This is more than a tale of two entities; it is a study in evolution. It reveals how even within a venerable institution like Jack Ross, there can emerge an innovative offshoot like JacRox, answering the needs of a new generation without severing ties to a rich history. Whether you are seeking the reassuring presence of historical expertise or the dynamic capabilities of modern tech, the choice between Jack Ross and JacRox becomes not just a financial decision but a declaration of your business’s identity.
