About Us

We’re Business Partners, we’re local, we’re independent and we’ve been helping Market Harborough businesses since 1993. It doesn’t matter whether you are a sole trader, partnership or limited company – whether you want annual, quarterly or monthly accounts, a tax return, payroll processing or an out-sourced accounts department – you will discover that we have services that will save you time, money and hassle.


As a small accountancy practice we offer individual attention and we work closely with our clients to tailor our services so that they are both cost effective and relevant to your needs. To keep your costs down and your accounts up to date, we run fast and proven systems. We’re friendly, efficient and bristling with ideas.


Small businesses come in all shapes and flavours, from carpet fitters to couriers and from surveyors to statisticians. Since 1993 I think we’ve dealt with them all. We’ve straightened the accounts of hairdressers and put a gleam into the books of window  installers. We gave them the bedrock of certainty on which they could build their business.

Our client base ranges in size from large public sector organisations to small sole-traders and the range of industries is equally diverse. Many of our clients are longstanding, some from the very start of the business in 1993.


We appreciate that only in time can we gain your trust, so that you know when we say we can and will do something, we do it. Our aim is to:

  • Provide a friendly, polite service
  • Listen to what you say
  • Communicate with you efficiently
  • Never surprise you with unexpected bills
  • Be honest, truthful and upfront with you at all times
  • Aim for you to legally pay the least amount of tax
  • Provide relevant business advice
  • Invest in quality staff, IT resources and training

Above all, we never lose sight of the fact that our success is directly linked to yours.
