A little bit about us

Because we aim to take all the headaches out of your financial arrangements, we always take a practical and commonsense approach. We always explain everything we do for you, and why – in a friendly and clear way. Organising your accounts is a serious business, but we try to do it as informally as possible, with no smoke and mirrors,  no jargon – and no hidden costs.

Our partners, David Hall and Henry Speight, are backed by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic staff. As a client you will always have direct access to a partner.

Established over 30 years ago in 1977, we currently have over a thousand clients. Most are small to medium sized businesses, where we look after their accountancy and taxation needs. But we also work with larger companies, and we take care of private individuals too – anyone who needs to produce a tax return, or wants help with their accountancy affairs.

Thanks to our Brighton base we have an eclectic and highly stimulating group of clients, working with companies and individuals ranging from engineers and dentists through to musicians and writers. As a result we have built up vital, practical experience in meeting the specific accounting requirements of a very broad range of businesses. Today, we have clients both locally and throughout the country. Wherever you may be – and however big or small your needs – we would be delighted to work with you too.
