All of our principals are professionally qualified accountants. We also all live in the local area which gives us an awareness and understanding you would not necessarily obtain from accountants operating out of the big towns and cities.

People we speak to are surprised when we inform them that many practising accountants are not professionally qualified. All of our team are either professionally qualified accountants, qualified accounting technicians or actively training for nationally recognised accounting qualifications. We place great value in ensuring our whole team remain up to date by providing regular, relevant and up to date training for all our staff.
