About Us

Andrew Cross

Andy & Nicola

Andy says his passion for tax is about "helping individuals pay less tax and working with people who are scared of and therefore don't communicate with HM Revenue & Customs and get themselves into difficulties". He has seen many people throughout his career who "become out of control with their finances, and although earn a good standard of living during employment their finances are unplanned and have no provision for any income or money in retirement".

Chris Searle

Chris started his working life at Grant Thornton Accountants and has gone on to work with a large number of small businesses utilising IT and the internet to both market their services and stay in control of internal administration.

Working behind the scenes with Andy since the early 2000's Chris's role is to assist business clients to better manage their accounting information and cashflow in order to help them grow.

Nicola Cross

"This is a very exciting time for us, we are reshaping our business and moving away from the traditional image of Accountancy. We are focusing our efforts of being the local brand for personal taxation specialists and small business accountnats.
