About Us

WR shrewsbury office

Whittingham Riddell is an independent accountancy practice offering high quality and cost-effective services at a local level, via offices in Ludlow, Newtown, Shrewsbury & Wrexham, 12 Partners and over 200 members of staff. 

We've been around since 1899 and we continue to build on our reputation locally, whilst developing a progressive and comprehensive package of business support in a rapidly changing business environment.

Our approach:

Helping you to plan for the future and not just cope with the present:

As a firm, Whittingham Riddell offer a pro-active, pre-emptive approach. Our reputation for excellence is based on a thorough understanding of your business needs. We go beyond simply reacting to problems as they arise, by working in close collaboration with our clients, providing a friendly, face-to-face service that helps you to plan realistically for the future.

Our client base is broad and we work across a wide spectrum of industries, providing sector specific knowledge for your business, no matter how big – or small.

Helping our clients build a solid base on which to grow:

Thanks to the depth and range of our experience, we have a better understanding than most of the complex issues facing organisations today. Our practice offers much more than traditional accountancy work: every service we provide is designed to help our clients achieve a stable business. Only then can we help them grow.

Helping our clients achieve their potential:

We work at a level that suits your needs - from year end accounts to becoming your 'virtual accounts department'- we're with you all the way.

Committed to your success:

We help with issues as simple as payroll or the recruitment of accountancy staff, plus more complex areas of financial services or tax guidance.

We’re committed to developing genuine partnerships with all our clients and thanks to our consultative approach, our specialist teams become financial mentors – able to guide you and your business through the often complicated world of tax, accounting and business.
