We are flexible in that we will get involved as much or as little as you want in your business. We enjoy rolling our sleeves up and helping you to take advantage of more than 30 years’ of experience in ensuring that our clients get the most from their businesses.

Customer Testimonials

Birch Veterinary Centre has been a client of Phillip Bates & Co for more than 20 years, during which time the business has grown significantly.

Phil and his team have many strengths. They are prompt and efficient, they are proactive and are able to look at things differently.

We have certainly found it beneficial to have our accountancy and financial planning under the same roof.


Running a successful business requires many different skills and I would be the first to admit that the accountancy side of things is not my strongest area. This is why the relationship with Phil has been so important – he is insistent on setting realistic yearly budgets and each month he is able to give us a good indication about our finances and the general state of the market.

He is also invaluable in terms of helping us understand the financial pressures around stock control, overtime and other key factors in a business.
