Who Are We?

Why choose a firm of Chartered Certified Accountants?

Legally anyone can call themselves an ‘accountant’ – you don’t need any training, qualifications or experience. With a firm of Chartered Certified Accountants you can be guaranteed of all three. Following years of training and experience we can help you make the most efficient use of your money and make your business grow. We are regulated by a professional body and bound by a Code of Ethics, meaning you can have total confidence in our professionalism. If you are unhappy with our work, you have recourse with a professional regulator who’ll investigate our professional conduct. We are required to complete continuing professional development each year. Our knowledge is therefore kept up to date and we understand how the latest regulations affect you or your business. We hold a practising certificate and professional indemnity insurance, meaning you are protected against work we perform that harms you or your business.
