Our business philosophy
We are an independent, four partner practice based in Pimlico, London, close to Victoria Station. After more than 70 years in practice we have developed close working relationships with many of our long established clients whilst still looking to develop new business contacts.
We are small enough to deliver a personal service which ensures our clients get the best professional advice at the highest level in a timely and efficient manner. Our clients range from individual sole-traders through to large commercial and manufacturing businesses and firms in the professional sector as well as not-for profit organisations and charities.
We aim to provide all our clients with a service tailored to their specific individual needs and also welcome new clients, to whom we give an initial free of charge, no obligation consultation.
Please feel free to contact the partners or managers to see if we can assist yourself or your business further.
We are registered to carry out audit work in the UK and Ireland by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
