Products & Services

Bookkeeping & Accounting

Bookkeeping and accounting are the last thing you want to think about when you are focussing on running your business.

We can help by freeing up your valuable time by doing this process for you, either at your office or at ours.

We begin by discussing your specific requirements with you and then we set up appropriate accounting procedures and controls and ensure your accounts are kept fully up-to-date and in compliance with statutory regulations.


The Plummer Parsons approach of developing a real world understanding of your business means that your annual audit becomes far more than just a box ticking exercise.

If you are required to present audited accounts as a result of the size of your business or charity, at the request of shareholders or members, as a result of legislation specific to your sector or you rightly value the reassurance gained by an annual audit we can make sure you get the best possible value out of the process.

Whether you are simply looking for a personal tax accountant to file your tax return or for one that will assist you throughout the year Plummer Parsons can help.

Plummer Parsons act for a wide variety of personal tax clients and provide a service personalised to their individual needs.

Customer Testimonials

Neville Beckhurst of Plummer Parsons has worked closely with Oxford Drying Services Ltd over the years as our trusted accountant and has always offered us an excellent service, providing sound advice and support.

Recently our organisation has undertaken an acquisition. The involvement of Neville Beckhurst and Plummer Parsons, their advice and expertise have been invaluable throughout the process, ensuring that matters have been conducted diligently, effectively and in our best interests."

Ken McKenzie, Managing Director of Oxford Drying Services Ltd commented further " that processes involved in the acquisition of a company are complex, however, the professional services of the specialist team at Plummer Parsons were of great value to our company.

You should be congratulated on the work of your accountants. I needed advice about handling a business account which had some complexities of an international nature. You spent time exploring the options, and offered realistic solutions. Your pro-active approach and informative manner has now led me to place all my business accounting with your firm, and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others. Good job!

You [Andrew Saunders] have been great to work with. Everything you have said you will do you have done. We now have a reliable accounting system and team that supports our business, making its presence felt when useful. Our cash is under control and we get good advice. And best of all, you made a big material difference to my own income through great tax advice and carrying it through into action.

Really happy to recommend you. Wish I could have found you more clients!
