Meet The Team

The partners are assisted by a dedicated team of over 30 staff incorporating qualified & experienced accountants, auditors, personal tax, corporate tax and payroll specialists.

Our staff come from a variety of backgrounds; some have trained with us from leaving school, some have experience from larger city based practices and others have previously had careers within industry or with HMRC so we really do have a wealth of experience to draw on.

We are also proud to be a registered AAT and ICAEW training office, offering supported study packages and training to those wishing to pursue a career with us. In addition to these accountancy qualifications we also regularly support employees studying ATT and CTA who wish to specialise in taxation.
