Our Firm Today

This is a small general practice offering personal professional  service to our clients.  As a general practice  we deal with all aspects of accounts and taxation, finance and business, and have extensive knowledge of the needs of the individual, business owner, partnerships and companies.

We prepare accounts for business purposes (eg banks for borrowing funds) and agree tax liabilities with H M Revenue and Customs.  We have contacts with specialists in the fields of taxation and company law where expert advice is sought.

Our clients include companies and businesses, large and small. We act for many individuals in completeing their tax returns and obtaining tax repayments on their behalf.

We believe in playing fairly with the taxation authorities and in producing honest information, allowing us all to sleep well at night.  

We also believe that the individual needs protection from authority – tax or other – where claims or demands are unreasonable and unfair, and we argue fiercely on behalf of our clients where circumstances require.

This firm is regulated by our professional body, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).  DHP Tiptaft is authorised to undertake the audit of limited companies.

We are Registered Auditors – qualified to carry out statutory audits of limited companies and other regulated bodies.

We have contacts with specialists in the fields of accountancy, tax and the law when expert advice is required.
