About us

We are a small firm of accountants specialising in the preparation of accounts for small businesses and completion of tax returns for individuals and partnerships – no job is too small.  Based in converted farm buildings in the village of Corston just outside Bath, we are ideally located to serve the Bath and Bristol areas.  Parking is no problem as there is ample parking on site.

As noted on our home page, although we are only a small firm we do have a second office covering the Weston-Super-Mare area, this being manned by one of our partners, Geoff Richards.

Our aim is to provide a professional service with a friendly touch, while at the same time keeping up to date with legislation that is constantly changing, particularly in the field of taxation.  Please take a few moments to look at our page regarding some of the more recent changes relevant to small businesses.

The staff have all been with the firm for over 15 years each specialising in their own field but with an extensive knowledge of the other areas of service we provide.  To put names to the staff, we have:-

Geoff Richards CTA, FMAAT (based in Weston-Super-Mare) Partner specialising in the preparation of tax returns for individuals, partnerships and companies.

As members of our professional institutes, we have access to detailed reference materials on any tax, complementing our own extensive knowledge and experience.  This enables us to ensure that you comply with your obligations while at the same time paying as little tax as legally required.
