We specialise in small owner managed businesses. We are a modern proactive practice and believe your accountant should be there to help when you need it, not just at year end. We promote the benefits that technology such as online bookkeeping can offer businesses, that is why we prefer to use Xero accounting software where possible.
We are based in the South East of England in the village of Wye in Kent, located between Ashford and Canterbury. Clients are welcome to visit us in our office here but we also work exclusively online and via the phone for our clients located throughout the UK.
