About us

  • 24 offices around the UK with Nine offering graduate training
  • 102 partners and over 490 professional staff in total
  • Technical centres in London, Manchester and Glasgow

We have a diverse skill-base that enables us to offer a broad range of services to an equally broad range of clients; including public and private companies, family-run businesses, partnerships and sole traders, representing the full spectrum of commercial life.

We offer everything you’d expect from the mid-tier and some things you might not expect:

  • Audit, accounting, payroll and bookkeeping
  • Corporate and personal tax
  • General business advice
  • Corporate finance services such as strategic business advice, selling your business, raising finance, going public in particular AIM support services, mergers and acquisitions
  • Advice on family matters, including inheritance tax, trusts and other tax planning
  • Specialist services such as VAT, litigation support, corporate recovery, international tax planning, Sarbanes Oxley compliance
  • Company secretarial services.

Our size enables our clients to enjoy the best of both worlds. We are big enough to provide the technical expertise of larger practices, yet personal enough to allow partners and staff to retain close contact with clients. As a trainee accountant, you benefit from our size with:

  • A diversity of work opportunities when training and after qualifying
  • Early responsibility
  • A personal approach to your development
  • A friendly environment, where you are known as an individual, not as one of a number of recruits.  

Punching above our weight with listed clients 

We are very proud of our work with listed clients. The firm’s capital markets specialists have seen an incredibly successful period of growth meaning that we rank way above our peers when it comes to AIM, PLUS and fully listed clients.

According to Adviser Rankings Ltd we rank 9th by total number of stock market clients and 9th by number of AIM clients. That means that an incoming graduate will have a much better chance of gaining experience with listed businesses and getting involved in an even broader spread of work.
