About Us

We’ve been in business since 1927.
During this time, almost everything has changed.

Downturns became upturns. Notepads became iPads. We’ve seen the jet-age, the space age, the information age, and now the cloud age.

And throughout it all, we have offered one simple promise to our clients.

Absolute clarity.

For over 90 years we’ve provided audit, accounting and taxation advice to businesses and their owners. Today, we have over 50 employees, working with over 1000 clients ranging from owner-managed SME businesses and fast-growth entrepreneurial ventures to national and multinational companies, across all industries.

We’ve built a reputation as a leading independent accountancy practice.

Our Services

We can help you with the outsourcing of specialist and more day-to-day service offerings, including strategic planning; profit maximisation; business plan preparation and budget planning.
