Trained to analyse objectively and act with integrity, chartered accountants working independently offer help and advice to businesses of every size. Many are – or have been – employed within organisations across a wide range of industry sectors. This gives them the breadth and depth of experience to offer an invaluable sense of perspective.

The strategic abilities of an independent chartered accountant can help you to examine your business ideas and evaluate profit potential, manage growth successfully and minimise business tax.

Always remember to check for the title 'chartered accountant' when looking for help with your business. Legally, anyone can call themselves an ‘accountant’ – they don’t need any qualifications, training or experience. Would you trust just anyone with your business?
