We are one of the leading independent firms of chartered accountants in North East Scotland. The firm has 5 partners and more than 40 members of staff. Most of our partners have backgrounds in large firms and have chosen an independent structure so they can remain ‘hands-on’ in the business, dealing directly with clients, business intermediaries and employees on a day-to-day basis.

We offer a full range of accounting, tax and business advisory services. Our clients range from start-up businesses to companies with international interests.

Our size and client base mean we can provide an interesting, challenging and varied experience for all staff whilst recognising the individual strengths and needs of each employee.
