About our client

The firm has strong values and has built its original business model on cutting-edge technology and the newest trends in the accounting profession.

The Directors are big on investing in their people and believe in partnering with like-minded businesses.

Therefore, the firm's client base consists predominantly of businesses that set the standards for performance and organisational culture in their respective industries.   

The Directors’ focus has been firmly on growing the advisory offering by the firm, while progressively reducing the low-level compliance work done by the team. A trend that has further accelerated since the Covid crisis has hit our economy.
