About us

Experience and insights you will value

We are a leading top 25 firm of chartered accountants and tax advisers in central London, providing advice to entrepreneurs, fast-growing and owner-managed businesses, charities and not for profit organisations across the UK and internationally.

We help our clients solve problems, grasp opportunities and achieve their goals.

As a top 25 firm we are large enough to provide a wide range of services, yet small enough to offer a personal, responsive approach.

All our services are provided by specialist teams with an in-depth knowledge of their sector. This means each client benefits from the support of someone who understands their challenges and can give them accurate, appropriate advice. We spend time getting to know our clients well so we can tailor our services to meet their needs.

Over the years we have built strong, close and enduring relationships with our clients and they value us as trusted advisers.

Corporate social responsibility

Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme is an important step in ensuring we work with our clients, employees and other stakeholders, to better support our local community and reduce our impact on our environment. We are committed to operating our business in an ethical manner that is both sensitive and responsible with proper regard to our legal obligations and abiding to relevant directives, regulations and codes of practice.

As part of our 2018/19 CSR programme we are working in partnership with two ‘charities of the year’ that were selected by our staff: Campaign Against Living Miserably and Anthony Nolan
