The firm was established in 1950’s by Stanley Taylor; later joined by Ken Robertson then Charles Willett. Today the owner- directors are Neil Slater and Paul Slater.

Throughout its history the firm has endeavoured to provide a highly personalised service for its clients, large and small alike. We are experienced in dealing with the affairs of owner managed companies, partnerships and individuals. We have experience of charities, guarantee companies, co-ops, clubs and friendly societies.

We are fully qualified (some accountancy firms are not). We are registered as auditors by the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants. As registered auditors we are able to provide the annual statutory audit. We can also perform ad hoc audits. We can review companies’ controls and procedures, highlighting weaknesses and suggesting improvements.

We are a relatively small firm providing assistance to a wide range of businesses. Client sectors include: Farming, chemicals, paint, professional, medical, haulage, electrical, retail, etc.

The firm’s objective is to be to provide best advice with a personal and professional approach. Our provincial cost-base gives us a significant competitive advantage over city-based firms. Our fees are based on time spent on the assignment. Our highest charge-out rate is £120 per hour. Fees are often discounted in the case of larger assignments.

Our philosophy has been rewarded by the continued steady growth of the firm over its 50 year plus existence. Our advertising overhead is somewhere between small to non-existent, relying as we do on referrals.
