Business planning services
A business that fails to plan, plans to fail
While we provide all the audit, accountancy and taxation services you would expect from a firm of Chartered Accountants, our forte is in providing on-going support to clients in developing their business strategies and working with them to achieve corporate and business and financial goals.
360 degree planning - At the core of our strategic planning is the demand from our clients to link together strategic business planning with personal tax and wealth planning. Helping you to create wealth in your business, protect the value you have created and over time turning this into personal wealth.

Dafferns Financial Services - Pensions, investments and protection advice
Everyone knows that a successful business must plan ahead, but all too often the pressures of keeping the business going on a daily basis mean that strategic planning is not given the attention it needs. The result is often rushed judgements, over- or under-capacity, or missed opportunities.
Every business owner needs a planning adviser who has the time and space to take the long view and advise on appropriate courses of action before it is too late. With years of experience advising the local business community we have a wealth of experience and expertise for you to draw on.
