Your Success Is Our Business
We’re extremely proud to be so much more than an accountancy firm.
Since our formation in 1979, our unique, proactive approach has helped thousands of businesses prosper, providing a refreshingly personalized and practical service to the people behind the numbers.
Our passion and success lies in understanding our clients’ businesses from the bottom up. By gaining a broad perspective of your business including where you are today, your risks and opportunities and your aspirations for the future, we’re able to help you not only succeed, but excel.
We work with a wide range of clients across many sectors, from individuals and partnerships to small companies with turnovers to £10.2m, but they all have one very important thing in common: a desire to make their money work harder, faster and smarter.
Facilitating your business’ growth is what powers our team of highly experienced professionals who share the Birkett ethos of open, candid communication combined with industry-leading financial and business advice.
