About us

We are created for MSMEs

What you need to know about Barrington House

Barrington House Limited (BHL) was founded in 1999 by D. Barrington Harris because of the existing demand for accounting, taxation, other MSMEs management support services, and auditing and assurance services.

Having worked with two accounting firms, including an international firm, spanning nine years, Barrington Harris observed that one of the chief drivers of the accounting business was the personal relationship the firm has with its clients. This relationship was, to a great extent, lacking in those firms within which Barrington Harris worked. Having made this observation, and having acquired a level of competence from his vast experiences in these firms, as well as working in the private sector, Barrington Harris made the decision to start his own business of providing accounting, taxation, assurance and financial modelling among other services to MSMEs.

BHL was incorporated in 2000 as a limited liability company, with Barrington Harris as the major shareholder and principal director. Since then, it has grown in its capabilities and competences. Fundamental to BHL's approach is the acquisition of a thorough knowledge and deep understanding of its clients’ industries. This knowledge is what enables BHL to assist its clients to achieve the best results in their respective industries. This is why BHL invest in continuously improving its knowledge of the industries it serves, and enhancing the technologies it deploys in serving its client.

  What underpins our service delivery

The underpinnings to BHL's service delivery are our Integrity, Professionalism, and our appreciation for Sustainability.


Integrity

In the delivery of our service, we have the highest regard for honesty, straight forwardness, and candidness.

We will not knowingly disseminate or be associated with reports, returns, communications or other information where there is evidence that the information contains a materially  false or misleading statement, or  contains statements or information furnished recklessly, or omits or obscures information required to be included where  such  omission  or  obscurity would be misleading.


Professionalism

As professionals, we observe the profession’s technical and ethical standards, strive continually to improve competence and the quality of our service delivery, and, discharge   professional   responsibility  to  the best of his ability.

Being professionals imposes on us  the   obligation to perform professional services to the best of our ability with concerns for the best interest of MSMEs for whom the services are performed and be consistent with the profession’s responsibility to the public.


Sustainability

BHL and its partners are forward-looking and pragmatic in our approach to service delivery. As such, we encourage MSMEs to adopt a sustainable approach to development. Sustainability is now widely practised by many companies. 

Sustainability is without a doubt here to stay. Not only will it become a requirement going forward, it is here as there are some governmental and international organizations who will not do business with entities that do not demonstrate that they are practising sustainability.


How we deliver our services

BHL is responsive. Companies who choose our firm rely on competent advice, quality service delivery, and efficient personnel.

Our reputation reflects the high standards we demand of ourselves. Our primary goal as a trusted advisor is to be available to provide insightful advice and practical solutions to enable MSME's to make informed business decisions. We do not accept anything else from ourselves, and this is what we deliver to MSMEs. We feel it is extremely important to continuously educate ourselves to improve our technical expertise and competence, financial knowledge and service delivery to MSMEs. Not only that, but we will also answer all of your questions as they impact your finances and operations.
