Who are we?

Welcome to Musker & Garrett Chartered Accountants

We are a firm of Chartered Accountants with two managing directors, established in 1992. The firm was initially set up some 3 years after the qualification as Chartered Accountant of Ray Musker & John Garrett. They set up the Practice after realising there was a market for a quality firm of Professional Chartered Accountants in the North area of Liverpool. They began in business with only a handful of clients who were initially friends and grew their own business, as well as their clients’ business, in the early years. The majority of our clients have come to this firm from recommendations, which supports our methods and our results.

We believe it is this generic growth and the hands-on approach of John and Ray to all of our clients that has resulted in today’s successful business that now employs some 20 staff and has seen us become a leader in the Accountant & Business Adviser market in the North West of England.

Ray and John collectively have in excess of 70 years’ experience in accounting, taxation, audit and all areas of General Practise. This has been gained from working in a small suburban Liverpool Practice (where they met) to medium sized and the very largest of accounting firms in this country and abroad. At Musker & Garrett, we therefore believe that we can offer a unique pool of expertise able to meet all clients' business needs whether they are a one person business or an international group of companies.
