We are 40!

We are celebrating our 40th Anniversary!

This year, we are celebrating 40 years since our first office, in Darlington, opened to offer expert accountancy and taxation services to local owner manager businesses and private individuals.

The partnership was started by Clive Owen, when he spotted a gap in the market for an independent firm with a range of specialisms.

The firm now operates from Darlington, Durham, York and Middlesbrough with 13 partners and 128 staff spread across the offices.

To mark the anniversary, the firm has launched a series of celebratory events for partners, alumni, clients and intermediaries which are planned across the year. We has also introduced a team ’40 challenge’ where colleagues are encouraged to pick something with a 40 theme as a challenge to themselves – such as reading 40 books, visiting 40 beaches or swimming 40km!

We have grown significantly in this time, and now offer a diverse range of services to clients across all sectors.

Recently, we have developed our values. Our Values are our guiding principles. We put them at the heart of everything we do. They direct our decisions, our actions and how we work together with each other, our clients, and our communities. These values will impact on the future of our firm, over the next 40 years.

How did we get to where we are today?
