Specialists in the legal sector

We have specific experience and expertise in providing accountancy services and business advice for Legal Practitioners and their firms and practices. Through assisting our broad client base, we are fully aware that the needs of Legal Practitioners can be complex and varied and have a good understanding of the Law Society's rules.


Our Service Provision

Our assistance extends beyond traditional Accounting, providing advice on business issues and helping Clients to understand their financial and management challenges.


Accounts & Tax

We provide a comprehensive Accounting service, including the preparation of annual Self Assessment Tax Returns and advice on tax-deductible expenses. We aim to complete all year-end accounts within 3 months of the accounting date, giving advance warning of future tax liabilities.

We provide accounts in a format that is informative and helpful for the management of your Practice.


Bookkeeping & VAT

Bookkeeping is an essential element of preparing accounts. If you don’t have the capability internally, why not outsource this function to our team? We can also assist with preparing VAT returns. We can visit your Practice on an ongoing monthly basis to undertake the Bookkeeping function, providing interim management accounts and reports as required, as well as reviewing VAT Returns and supporting documents.



We can offer a Payroll service which means that your staff do not need to concern themselves with the increasingly complex requirements of the PAYE system. This also gives an added measure of confidentiality and security.


IT Development

Our team is experienced in all accounting packages, including Sage, QuickBooks and Excel. We help you to choose a suitable package, install it and train your staff in its use. We provide assistance in understanding the reporting capabilities of your chosen software, which in turn aids your understanding of your Practice finances.


Financial Structures and Drawings

As experienced business advisors, we provide advice on the best financial structures, as well as on profit sharing and drawings for your Practice.


Tax Planning

Our Firm and consequently some members of our Professional Team are Tax specialists, providing timely and pro-active tax advice for our Clients' specific needs. This includes year-end Income Tax Planning, as well as considering longer-term planning such as Inheritance Tax.


Retirement & Succession Planning

We look at Retirement and Succession planning in the Practice. Our client experience means that we have regularly dealt with Practice changes and can help you to develop a package for new partners and advise on the administration of partnership changes.


Financial Planning

We have in-house independent Financial Advisors who have many years experience in the Professional sector, providing advice on Retirement, Tax Planning, Pensions and Investments.
