After months of research and development, market analysis and strategy, business development and trend forecasts, we are proud to unveil our new website -

We hope the information on the services we provide, to both new and existing clients, is more in-depth and will give the user a better window on how our company has evolved, and how we can provide a comprehensive accountancy service - from the sole trader to the multi-national company, in areas that span plumbers to professional footballers and deep-sea divers to close protection bodyguards, our client list is ever growing as is our expertise.

Recently we have also been granted our ISO9001 accreditation (Cert. No. AJA14/17208) as well as become a Qualified Person Responsible for Training (QPRT) for the ICAEW, The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (cert No. X003943896).

The new site highlights our close relationship with charities and how our core ethos is to help others. From repatriation of ex-service personnel into civilian work to helping injured service men and women after their life has been changed while in the line of fire for their country. We’ve seen the recent trend of top-flight sport professionals being forced to declare themselves bankrupt after mis-management of their wealth earned in the small space of time, and along with the rest of The Associates, we want to help the young and old sport professionals in the industry to avoid this.

So please take a look and email us your thoughts, we welcome feedback to help us sculpt our company to become a more helpful and streamlined financial service.

Many thanks

Team Whittaker
