Knowledge and expertise you can rely on

At Williamson & Croft, we truly believe that good accountants, whether internal or external, are the key to business development, growth, and operational efficiency. Helping management to understand the areas in which they are performing well, and those that require improvement, accountants can do everything from managing key relationships, providing strategic advice and developing robust systems and controls to reduce risk, to keeping the business compliant with the ever increasing maze of legislation and reporting obligations.

With such a fundamental part to play in your business, you need an accountancy firm that has the necessary skills and technical expertise to provide your business with a partner with a proven track record of helping businesses to achieve their goals. One that places client care above all else, underpinned by values of responsiveness, dependability, and shared responsibility. One that will go above and beyond to meet your needs and that can react to the constantly changing environment. If this sounds like the kind of accountancy firm that you want to work with, then you need Williamson & Croft by your side.

Self-Assessment Tax Returns

Whether you are self-employed, employed, a company director, or a non-resident landlord, we can help with the preparation and submission of your tax return. We can prepare the returns from source documents or simply calculate tax liabilities based on the figures that you provide.

VAT Returns

We can prepare your VAT returns or simply complete a final review prior to submission.  All of our team members are fully-trained in all of the major accounting software packages and can guide you through the Making Tax Digital (MTD) regime to ensure you are fully compliant.


Payroll is one of the most important processes within your business as it affects all of your staff, and poorly managed payroll can reduce morale and ultimately lower staff retention. This combined with the ever-changing tax legislation means it is key that you have a robust and accurate payroll solution in place. Our payroll team ensures that your payroll is efficient and compliant at all times. It covers auto enrolment pension schemes, minimum wage calculations, secure electronic communications, benefits in kind calculations and P11d submissions, and fully compliant HMRC Real Time Information (RTI) processing.


Depending on the size and nature of your business you can outsource your bookkeeping functions to us and we can manage your sales invoicing, purchases, expense claims, and bank reconciliations. If your business is too large or complex for our remote service, then we can advise you on the level of service you need and we work with lots of external bookkeepers that we can make introductions to.

Cloud Accounting

All our staff are trained in all of the major cloud accounting packages and can help you set up and maintain your preferred solution, ultimately allowing you to review your financials in real time from anywhere, at any time, and on any device.
