About Us

In many years of working with a very varied and wide client base, we think we have established a reputation as sound, reliable and capable accountants, and business advisers.

We do try to deliver the highest quality service to all of our clients, and we aim to develop strong relationships, taking the time to learn about you or your business.

If you choose us, you’ll find yourself working with people who are focused on making your financial affairs run smoothly – on saving you money – and on just dealing with things.

We are flexible, and able to offer you:

  • accountancy and financial advice. Audit and probate services (wills, powers of attorney and so on)
  • services that grow with your business or circumstances.
  • a fresh outlook – we’re a modern business facing the same challenges as our clients.

We act for individuals, charities and businesses (large and small). We provide business consulting and personal advice, tax, financial planning and all the rest of a broad range of support services. Payroll too.  In fact, we’ll tackle anything to do with finance or money.

We deal with every detail of compliance and regulations (the endless rules in modern financial life) and we advise on maximising income and preserving and growing capital. We try to provide the very best service tailored to the individual needs of each client.

We apply all this background and experience to our forensic work, which is just one of our specialities. In that area we do personal injury, fraud (defence only), commercial and divorce work (business valuations), as well as professional negligence cases involving both claimants and defendants.

We also do probate work, such as wills, powers of attorney and of course the administration of estates.
As to financial services (pensions, protection and investment) we restrict our activities to working with our clients to review and judge advice from their IFAs. It’s what clients need. We are not stock pickers.

And what characterises all our clients is an understanding that their accountants will provide much more than the usual accountancy, tax and audit services, but rather be a broader source of business and personal support.

To find out more about how you could benefit from Our Services, please e-mail or telephone (Mark Herbert or John Malthouse) to discuss your needs. There is no obligation and no charge for this, and we are happy to talk to you for as long as it takes to explain what we can do and how we can cope with and improve your financial life.

Incidentally, those readers who have got this far will realise that we don’t really do marketing.   We never have.  All our work comes from referrals. So this website is for information and not for self promotion.  Yes, really.
