ABOUT / SERVICES 

The world of Tax and Accountancy Services has often been one of formality and tradition where a clients' needs may not have been fully thought about. We are different and do not believe in basing services on outdated ideas and old working practices. 

Whilst you can rest assured that all of our staff are qualified and have received full and comprehensive training over many years (numerous decades in most circumstances) that’s where the formality ends. Our main aim is to provide the service we would expect ourselves, at a cost we would expect to pay, no more no less. 
With this in mind, we have a predominantly set “menu” of charges fixed at the outset. Of course there are circumstances that don't fit this rule, but over 90% of our clients pay a fee fixed each year in advance.  
 
Located in Exeter and Sheffield we have been established since 1997. Whilst each office operates independently, we work together in association which enables us to draw on expertise in all areas of taxation and accountancy matters. 
 
We have clients all over the world, choosing to retain our services even though they live thousands of miles away, we think that says a lot about the service and value for money we strive to provide. 
 
If you are looking for someone to complete your Tax Return, prepare some Accounts or just need some initial advice specific to your tax position we will be pleased to help. 

 EXETER OFFICE The Tax Team managed by Clive Smaldon 

I began my career in the Tax Department of a High Street Bank in the 1980's, before 7 years in practice with Ernst and Young. Developing an interest in IT, I then project managed provision of Management Accountancy software and services for retailers and companies via a national Software House for 5 years. In 1997 I joined the Tax Team on the opening of its offices in Exeter. 
 
I believe gearing a competitive level of Service to the person is the main reason clients come to and stay with our company. People should feel comfortable with their tax advisor, with every client being as important to us, regardless of fee.
