Not surprisingly, given our origins in the South West, we have a high number of marine related businesses in the region.

So it was logical to establish a team of accountants specialising in the marine sector, especially as many of our staff spend much of their leisure time enjoying the marine environment. Our Team is headed by Fleur Lewis, herself a keen sailor, and comprises specialists from across a range of disciplines such as audit and accounts, tax and VAT.

The businesses we work with range from marine fabrication and engineering to clothing businesses. The sector has gone through a great deal of change over the last 10 years and the successful businesses we have helped have now emerged fitter and more competitive as a result.
