From Our Website

We've been helping businesses, entrepreneurs, families and individuals to achieve their goals for over 100 years. From accountancy to business advice and financial planning, our experts are dedicated to helping you succeed. Because your ambition becomes our ambition. Whether you're an ambitious start-up or a market leader, there are many challenges on the way to success. Our advisors will help you identify and exploit opportunities to grow your business and drive profitability, while navigating the complex and ever-changing landscape of tax and regulatory compliance.

PKF Francis Clark continue to strictly observe the relevant Governmental directives and advice that exists and we remain flexible in our approach to adapt when circumstances change. Our key objective is to ensure the health and safety of our staff and our clients.

Our multi-award winning corporate finance team has consistently been ranked as one of the UK's most active dealmakers. We apply original thinking, proactive management, creative fundraising arrangements and innovative solutions to meet any and all challenges a transaction may expose. I have had the pleasure of working with the Francis Clark M&A team a number of times and specifically at times when we were undertaking an MBO and an AIM listing. Quite simply they take the grief out of what can be stressful situations by providing a very real understanding of the challenge thereby delivering excellent advice and clear options while they manage the process competently and securely.

Wherever you might be on life's journey you will have financial challenges to meet. We will take your life priorities and financial aspirations, your investment preferences and agreed risk profile and use these to create a bespoke financial planning strategy that is adaptable to changing circumstances and maximises your return on investment. As an independent firm, you can be reassured that the advice you receive from us is truly independent and is not restricted to a limited number of product providers or solutions.

Today digital content is readily available on your smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop. We expect this content to be entertaining and informative and we're used to paying for these services via monthly subscriptions in our personal life. I find Francis Clark to be very forward-thinking and proactive. The information they provide is absolutely trustworthy and solid and that gives us immense confidence in the decisions we have to make. So why not apply that accessibility, visibility and flexibility to the way you manage your business finances?

In everything from hands-on preparation and processing of your accounts, to strategic advice, PKF Francis Clark has a solution to help your business grow. Our outsourced accounts process involves a dedicated partner-led team working alongside you. This means you can interpret the data so that you can make informed decisions based on the meticulous information we provide. At the same time you can formulate a business strategy for the future, with a thorough understanding of the tax planning initiatives available.

Our award winning tax team strive to exceed our clients' expectations by being responsive, creative and going the extra mile to deliver superior outcomes. We aim to minimise our clients' tax overhead to create real benefits and significant opportunities for them. Our tax team work closely with our corporate finance team to ensure that clients' businesses can mitigate tax on transactions, disposals or successions while ensuring compliance with legal obligations. What makes us so effective is that we get to know you and your organisation, working alongside you as a trustworthy business confidante.

At PKF Francis Clark we have one of the largest and most experienced VAT, Customs & Indirect Tax advisory teams in the country. Our specialist team addresses issues proactively to help you meet your obligations, remain compliant and avoid penalties. We work with you to help solve your VAT problems, prevent disputes and where necessary liaise with HM Revenue & Customs on your behalf. Staying on top of VAT is essential to help avoid stiff penalties for non-compliance and late filing, while also helping to improve cashflow and profitability.
