Your local chartered accountancy firm but with a global view

If you are looking for a team of reliable, approachable, and proactive accountants who will do more than just respond to your needs but work alongside you to help you succeed, you have come to the right place.

Where we haven't got in-house specialists, our draw upon the expertise available within the firm, as well using our national and international networks.

For us it's clear that while being a firm of chartered accountants in Chelmsford is important, just being a traditional accountancy practice is not enough.

Our strength lies in our people who have expertise across a range of sectors including agriculture and rural business, construction and real estate, education, financial services, healthcare, leisure and hospitality, manufacturing and engineering, media and entertainment, motor, not for profit, professional services, renewable and sustainable energy, retail and consumer, technology, transport and logistics, travel and tourism

Our support extends beyond Chelmsford and East Anglia - with 12 offices at main economic hubs across London and the South East, and across the Midlands area, servicing the whole country.

Our accountancy services are extended overseas via our membership of Baker Tilly International - one of the world's leading networks of independently owned and managed accountancy and business advisory firms united by a commitment to provide exceptional client service.

The office is conveniently located in Chelmsford city centre which offers ample entertainment, a wealth of history as well as having direct lines to Central London.

Today's business environment is fast moving, complex, and highly competitive. Business owners need the support of professionals who provide on-time, effective solutions to help their business move forward. We aim to provide such a service.

Mike Kay

Partner

Mike is a well known name amongst the professional community in Essex and beyond. Over 20 years’ experience has ranged from secondment to clients, dealing with day to day challenges, through to heading up our Corporate Finance team in London and the South East. He has been awarded the "CF" designation by the ICAEW recognising his M&A experience since 1995.

Mike’s reputation and client base extends beyond East Anglia to the South Coast and up to the Midlands. He is regularly recommended by other professionals and clients for his simple and straightforward advice led approach - which he believes greatly increases the ability to understand, deliver and succeed - and his extensive knowledge of many industry sectors including leisure and hospitality, manufacturing and logistics. He is frequently instructed by banks to act on their behalf when considering lending propositions.

Working with businesses of all sizes, Mike has a particular focus on entrepreneurial clients, with many planning for future acquisitions, exits, buy outs and finance raising, drawing on his extensive knowledge in this area. Mike is often asked to provide business valuations in connection with matrimonial disputes and corporate restructurings.

Away from the office Mike can usually be found watching a game of rugby, when not working on his house renovation project, or enjoying a few glasses of fine wine. Unfortunately all this has limited his ability to reduce his golfing handicap.
