Edinburgh Accountants

No-nonsense small business advice from Chartered Accountants in Edinburgh
Because your business is too important to leave to guesswork

Why choose us as your Edinburgh Accountants?

Of course there are many firms of accountants in Edinburgh, so why should you choose us? We believe that we have the perfect mix of great jargon free advice and fast, friendly service. We use cutting edge cloud accounting technology to streamline your business. 

We also know that clients hate surprise accounting bills so after a free initial meeting we agree a fixed price agreement and clients pay by monthly Direct Debit. Clients can then call or meet with us safe in the knowledge that they are not incurring more fees by the minute.

Jargon Free Accountants

We believe there is too much jargon in accounting. Business owners don’t want to hear it. We get bored of it. And it usually leads to misunderstandings.
You’ll find our team jargon-free, plain-talking and ready to speak your language.
Beyond being experienced, first-class chartered accountants and tax advisors, we also have lives to live (believe it or not!)
So, we know how important it is for small business owners to create the time and the peace of mind, as well as the money, to spend time doing what they love with their families.
We aim to work in partnership with you over the months and years ahead to enable that to happen.
