We are a successful firm of Chartered accountants. We have been in business for 15 years specialising in all aspects of accountancy, tax and professional services.

We give school leavers the opportunity of training to become Chartered or Certified accountants without having to pursue the option of going to university.

We have a great track record of helping students qualifying as accountants.

We have excellent opportunities for students who want to learn, adapt, be challenged and grow, regardless of their background. We attract and retain the very best students. This enables us to provide a first class service to clients. We have a reputation for client focus, exceptional service, trust, specialist knowledge and approachability.

We are based in Eltham, South East London. Our small team in Eltham have many years’ experience in different fields. Half of our staff are fully qualified Chartered or Certified accountants. Our clients are based in London, the UK and abroad.

As a single office practice you will get to know and work with everyone in the firm. You will have the opportunity to develop a very wide range of commercial skills and knowledge.
