About Us

Arcus Taxation Accountants was established in 2000 by Andrew & Nicola Cross to provide individuals with local personal taxation advice tailored to their needs. We formed an association with Mill Lane Asset Management in 2010 and formed the financial planning side of the business.

The two businesses together aim to provide holistic financial planning and personal taxation services to individuals. The ethos of his business is focused on "being able to help clients plan their financial affairs and goals in the most efficient and independent manner possible". The two sides of the business complement each other.
