100 Years and Counting 1917-2017



We are extremely proud as a business to be celebrating our Centenary this year.

Where it all began

From our humble beginnings in Frogmoor by Ernest J Seymour back in 1917 to where we are today,'Excellent Client Service' continues to be at the heart of everything we do. We have seen many changes over the last 100 years. From PAYE being introduced back in 1944 as a more efficient tax collection system, to corporation tax launching in 1965, VAT being introduced in 1973 and last year’s vote to leave the European Union who knows what the next 100 years could bring!


We provide a full range of Accountancy and& business services.Kkey to this is the ongoing development of these to ensure that we are offering the most relevant and up-to-date packages we can. Our team are key to our continual success,- we invest in training and career development at all levels of our business. Since 1993 we have been a member of MGI Worldwide, a Top 20 international accounting network of independent audit, tax and accounting firms, which brings together the expertise of some 5,000 professionals in over 260 locations around the world. Our membership enables us to keep abreast of important new developments, whilst providing a seamless international service to any of our clients looking for support abroad.


Our industry needs to continue to evolve in line with new technology and future business developments. We keep our finger on the pulse by attending industry leading events and& briefings on these topics and by working alongside our clients to ensure we always offer consistent and excellent client service. We developed our App which you can download for free from the App store or Google Play, which provides additional business tools. As cloud accounting and technology continues to progress we will be looking at ways we can help you, our clients, by adding value.

It's going to be an exciting year ahead. We have set our team a challenge for 2017. Supporting the local community has always been important to us.Tthis year more than ever we wanted to give that little bit extra. We plan to deliver a minimum of 100 hours of Corporate Social Responsibility and to raise £10,000 for charities both locally and nationallyby supporting different events. Everything we do throughout our Centenary will be promoted through PR and Social Media. So watch out for details of how you can help!

A big thank you

Most of all we'd like to thank you: our clients, contacts and referrers. When we researched businesses who have been around for 100 years we noticed that it was those who continued to innovate and adapt to changing times that survived long term. We hope that is part of our longevity. By focusing on areas such as Excellent Client Service, Long Term Relationships and by Working in Conjunction with our Clients we hope we can continue to make this business go from strength to strength. Your continued support, existing business, new opportunities and referrals make us the business we are today and we never take that for granted. We are delighted to be celebrating 100 years in business and are looking forward to the future and all the new opportunities that it will bring.

We hope 2017 is a great year for you all.
