About Us

The faces behind the names

Our Philosophy

We aim to offer clients a friendly, approachable service, which is both affordable and efficient. The relationship a client has with their accountant should be one of trust and mutual understanding. We want our clients to be able to call and tell us how their business is going, without fear of what they may be billed. We aim to become a resource for your business, rather than a necessary evil.

Transparency and working with clients to help them incorporate small changes that can save them money in the long term are important to us.

All potential clients are encouraged to get in touch to speak to us about the services they require. We will talk you through what things can be done immediately to help address your needs and discuss long term goals. And for the initial consultation, we won’t charge you a penny. We believe in building long term relationships with our clients, based on honest and frank discussions, so everyone knows where they stand.
