Cobley Desborough has been serving businesses and taxpayers in the Midlands, and latterly the whole of the UK, for well over a century. You only achieve that sort of longevity in this business by applying an implacable focus to giving the client what they really want from their accountant. And right at the top of any client's list of expectations is that their accountant is going to keep the amount of tax they pay to the absolute minimum. As a wise old judge once remarked, no man in this country is under the smallest obligation, moral or other, so to arrange his business as to enable the Inland Revenue to put the largest possible shovel into his stores.

All of our partners and managers have a huge amount of experience in tax, as you would expect from a firm of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Customer Testimonials

I set up my one man band law firm in April 2012 and retained Cobley Desborough who I have been associated with for over 30 years, as my Accountants. Immediately my confidence in them was rewarded. I previously retained a "top 20" practice who completely lacked the proactivity and empathy that they have in spades.


Having decided to change our accountant, Cobley Desborough came highly recommended. Our experience has been nothing short of exceptional, showing a real depth of knowledge and professionalism together with an extremely friendly and efficient service at all times. It is invaluable to have such confidence with Cobley Desborough looking after our affairs and we too strongly recommend their services.
