Who are we?

We are a friendly but professional firm of chartered accountants based in Barry, in South Wales. We provide accountancy and taxation advice and support to small and medium sized businesses as well as individuals.

Our team is headed by Martin Hayward a chartered accountant with over 25 years experience in advising and assisting small and medium sized businesses on tax, accountancy and business matters.


The majority of our clients are concentrated in Barry, the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff. However we have clients in many parts of the UK including London, West Wales, North Wales and Scotland, and have even acted for clients as far away as Hong Kong, Canada and New Zealand.


We are members of and regulated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the oldest and most respected accountancy body in the world.


We pride ourselves on providing a very personal service and this we feel is borne out by the fact that very few of our clients leave us even when they move away.
