Our Bristol office is located in the heart of the City’s financial district and is home to around 190 people including 37 Partners and Directors.


The Bristol office offers an exceptionally broad range of services to individuals and businesses including audit, accountancy, personal and business tax, investment management and financial advisory. Our clients include both UK resident and non -UK domiciled individuals, medium and large corporates, SMEs, entrepreneurs, private clients, professional practices and not for profit organisations.

Our Bristol based tax advisors, accountants, financial advisors and investment managers have managed the financial affairs of private clients and their business interests for well over a century. We believe in building close, long term relationships with our clients, many of whom have been with us for generations where we have dealt with longer term succession issues and financial planning for exit or retirement. It is well placed to deal with the personal and corporate tax implications of expansion, growth or sale for businesses and their owners. 

The Bristol office also provides access to an international capability in over 115 countries, in part through our membership of Nexia International and Oaklins International. This enables us to service the global and local needs of our clients from non UK -domiciled individuals to cross border multi-national companies with international tax issues.
