We are an independent, five 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 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 Accountant in England and Wales.

Audit & Assurance

Our audit staff are well equipped to deal with the ever changing and increasingly intricate auditing and reporting legislation being placed on firms which fall under the scope of the audit regulations as required by the Companies Act 2006 and other regulated bodies.

Experience with our existing audit clients, which include large limited companies, LLPs, charities and national non-profit making organisations ensures our audit staff have both the knowledge and the skill to deliver a high quality service.

We are regulated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales to carry out audit work.

Statutory Accounting

We can provide statutory accounts preparation in compliance with the Companies Act 2006 and current accounting regulations from records maintained by a client for limited companies, LLPs, charities and not-for profit organisations . This service also enables us to review a client’s system of bookkeeping and ensure that basic routines such as bank reconciliations, debtors/creditors control and VAT/PAYE controls are in place thus giving peace of mind to the client. This does not fall under the audit regulations and should not be considered as an audit.

Bookkeeping and Management Accounting

For many of our clients we provide a comprehensive outsourced bookkeeping service, including completion of a company’s accounting records from source documentation, on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis depending on the client’s requirements. From this basic service monthly or quarterly management accounts can be produced as well as the preparation of periodic VAT returns. Linking this to our payroll services all of a client’s accounting needs may be delivered in a timely and efficient manner and at a reasonable level of cost. This is especially beneficial to smaller companies where directors are trying to deal with day to day issues of running their company whilst trying to keep abreast of how well the company is actually performing.
