Our business areas
We act for clients ranging from substantial businesses with international connections and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), professional firms and charities, to high net worth individuals.
Our clients cover a wide range of industries, from heavy engineering and advanced computer technology, nationwide insurance operations and charities, to professional firms such as solicitors.
Our ‘typical’ client is a large, privately owned business.
For many, the ownership rests in another part of the European Union (EU), giving our trainees a unique opportunity to see how the EU impacts upon business in Britain and how other nationalities approach businesses here.
This will continue to be the case whilst the UK has left the European Union.

The purpose of an external audit is to provide an independent assessment of an organisation’s finances. This review results in a financial statement, which can be used to empower decision making, reassure stakeholders/investors and provide information to the public on a company’s circumstances.
The external audit team will ensure their clients are kept up-to-date with changes in accounting and audit standards, while supporting any ad hoc questions throughout the year.
As an External Audit trainee, you will support on both statutory and non-statutory audits. This could involve planning audit procedures and tests, examining accounts and financial records, gathering evidence for tests, testing data using analytics, contributing towards a final audit report and maintaining strong client relationships.
Our expertise extends to entities in a broad range of sectors, including retail, property, construction, manufacturing, technology, professional services, and financial services, as well as charities, academies and not for profit.

As legislation evolves and becomes increasingly complex, it is more important than ever to ensure that Corporation Tax affairs are both compliant and efficient.

Our team of almost 70 people have been working with private equity and venture capital managers and funds, wealth managers and advisory firms for over 30 years, providing high-quality, bespoke advice to help them establish and grow their business.

Our key financial services clients include some of the longest established hedge fund managers in the UK and several of the largest in Europe, as well as a number of the most successful launches of recent years.
We can advise regulated firms on legal structures regarding the relationships between the funds they manage and the ways that the managers are remunerated. Equally, we know that the personal tax of those managers is often complex due to these same remuneration policies, and we are well placed to advise on this too.
We are here to act as an extension of a business, identify any issues and ensure tax and accounting issues are taken care of so that our clients can focus on growing a successful financial services business.
