Expert advice, friendly service

We provide our clients with expert taxation and accounting guidance through a friendly and personal service. Our clients are also able to take advantage of our well-established network of branches which allow us to cover even the most specialist of queries.

With 50 members of staff across our four offices, we have plenty of expert knowledge, so we can give you accurate advice in all the areas which affect your business.

Within in our network each of our offices operate independently with Partners and Accountants who have a firm grasp of their own local economic areas. This means that our clients can enjoy the type of personal service you can expect from an established local firm as well as the resources of a large accountancy practice.

At Cottons we can provide this comprehensive and reasonably priced service to businesses in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, service, retail and professional partnerships. In addition, we have considerable expertise in farming, fast food retail, nursing and residential homes, professional practices and technology companies.
