We are members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, which is the regulatory body of the accountancy industry. This ensures our work is of the highest standard and our knowledge is extensive and up-to-date. We don't just look at your books, we look at your business. Our philosophy is to look beyond the basics in order to develop strategies and solutions that maximise your personal and business wealth.

Our client base has increased over the years but the nature of our clients hasn't. Primarily we still tend to deal with owner manager businesses and high net worth individuals. Our clients range from one man band's to multi million pound turnover limited companies and are geographically located all over Shropshire and the West Midlands.

To be able to advise clients, you need to know their businesses and we at Hollingsworth & Co pride ourselves on our in-depth knowledge of our clients businesses. Client managers Lynn Fellows and Michelle Martin who handle all the day to day client matters have each been with the practice for over ten years and have developed a strong understanding of clients businesses and their requirements. Working closely with the seven other members of staff the whole team at Hollingsworth & Co remain client focused and committed to providing the highest standard of client service.

Products & Services


At Hollingsworth and Co we provide an extensive range of accounting and business services tailored to meet the requirements of small and medium sized enterprises.

By continually monitoring the changing regulatory, statutory and taxation environment, we aim to deliver solutions that minimise the compliance burden on our clients leaving them free to run their businesses. We do much more than inform clients on how their business has performed in the past, instead we will work closely to help develop a strategy for the future, and more importantly, Hollingsworth and Co. will assist with its implementation.
