Who we help

Focus on your sector

Advice that recognises what makes your industry unique

Why do you need an industry specialist?

Research shows that around 70% of small and medium-sized business operators believe it is important their accountant knows their sector. They are absolutely right.

From creative industry tax reliefs to the charities SORP, every field of work has its own unique complications in terms of tax and its own professional language. We believe in saving you time and knowing the context in which your business operates contributes to that goal.


Our digital-first approach naturally appeals to innovative and technology-led businesses. From IR35 to research and development (R&D) tax relief, we know what matters to freelancers, contractors and entrepreneurs.
