About Us

We are friendly chartered certified accountants, specialising in providing accountancy, tax and business advice to businesses and private individuals.

Along with being chartered certified accountants and registered auditors, we’re also a long-established yet fast-growing, award-winning team too. We’ve been trusted and recommended by our clients since 1969 and offer a wide range of tax and accountancy services across six regional offices that any individual or business in any sector can take advantage of whether or not we handle your accounts.

As you would expect from a leading tax and accountancy firm, we are regulated for a range of investment business activities in the UK by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Our Chartered Certified Accountants can help you:

  • Reduce the amount of tax you pay.
  • Avoid penalties for late submission by working with you to submit your tax return on time.
  • Manage your business more efficiently to make it more profitable.
  • Help with one-off tax or accountancy issues e.g. tax returns or inheritance tax.
  • Provide ongoing accountancy advice and support.

Zero-jargon, fixed-fee service

  • Our advice is clear, practical and valuable.
  • It’s also tailored to you and your business.
  • We offer fixed fees and flexible payments too.
  • We won’t charge you for emails, calls or meetings either.

Friendly, professional and personal

You’ll have direct access to an experienced team who you can contact with any question or query you might have. They’ll get to know you and your business and understand how it works and suggest ways in which we can help make it more tax-efficient and profitable.

One-off and long-term advice

We are more than happy to offer advice on an ad hoc basis if that’s what suits you and your situation. If you just need us to handle your self-assessment tax return, no problem, that’s what we’ll do. If it’s inheritance tax planning, we can handle that as well, or help you with accessing Research and Development Credits, again, no problem. We’re happy to help in whatever way we can.

Our commitment to you

As a leading accountancy firm, we retain and value the traditional expertise and experience that has been cultivated since our inception and seamlessly combine it with new, innovative and progressive techniques and procedures to produce effective solutions for the modern-day business environment.

  • We are passionate about making a measurable impact in all we do and our unique culture and approach allows us to deliver enduring results, true to each client’s specific situation.

We help businesses and individuals to not only be tax compliant, but more financially efficient too. We advise clients on how to save money and offer advice on how to make more of it by suggesting ways to streamline operations, recommending alternate marketing tactics and working with our clients when appropriate to achieve their objectives.

We care for our clients’ businesses as we do our own business. We think and act like business partners, not just accountants or financial advisors. We share our clients’ aspirations, work to understand their reality and align our advice accordingly with their objectives so that they never miss out on an opportunity.

We deliver the ‘Big 4’ quality of service at local rates and demystify the accounting process by presenting financial information in a clear and concise manner.

How we work with you

We realise that helping our clients requires more than just recommendation, so we try to put ourselves in our clients’ shoes and focus on practical actions and solutions.

We ensure our work has lasting benefits by developing a close bond with our clients and being deeply committed to their success.

We believe strongly in specialisation, and have oriented our firm’s structure and professional development processes to ensure that our understanding of our clients and the sectors in which they do business is deep and nuanced.

  • We are rigorous in seeking the best answer, not just the one that is most readily accepted and with the benefit of true expert knowledge and practical experience, we can deliver more efficient and practical business solutions.
  • We do not charge by the hour – or for meetings, emails or phone calls either – but give you a fixed fee for the job.

We cater for all sectors, individuals, charities and businesses

We cater for all sectors, but are tax and accountancy specialists in a large number of sectors. We act for a wide range of clients from individuals to local charities to professional services. Our widespread specialist knowledge allows us to tailor our tax and accounting advice in line with each sector’s economic challenges and legal regulations, to ensure that our clients have a competitive advantage.

We are fully committed to consistently providing the highest level of service to every one of our clients, no matter what the size of their business or how long they have been with us. We believe our client service levels and personal, yet professional approach, are one of the main areas that separate us from our competitors.

  • Premium service comes as standard for every client
  • Up to date, independent advice you can trust
  • Specialist expertise in key sectors
  • Client information is strictly confidential

We’re passionate about giving back to the community and operate an annual Corporate Social Responsibility Plan. This is designed to offer our time and skills to the local areas where we offer our services. We believe that embedding yourself in the community means investing your time and money to make a real and significant difference.

We aim to do this through:

  • Supporting charities
  • Donating our time
  • Local sponsorships

Our decisions on CSR are made as a collective, meaning every member of staff has a voice of equal weighting. We encourage our staff to take responsibility for our community efforts and aim to support our staff in any external activities also.
