About Us

We are a team of chartered accountants and chartered taxation advisers helping business owners do great things

The company you’ve built from scratch isn’t a hobby, it’s the driving force in your life. It’s important to you, and so it’s important to us. We understand the challenges and headaches you face as you build a thriving business.

Our aim is to help you achieve your biggest goals, solve your greatest challenges and give you peace of mind.

We look beyond the numbers and become your trusted advisers, adding massive value through our commercial understanding based on over 25 years of experience advising great SME’s.

Established over 25 years ago, we work with a successful range of clients. Many from start up or their early days and many who have had to face challenges along the way.

Based in the beautiful rural Meadowcroft Business Park just south of Preston – we are easily accessed from all corners of the North West and provide ample free parking and meeting room facilities.
