Ready to drive your business forward?
With the current boom of internet shopping and larger goods being cheaper abroad, the UK’s transport industry is one of the fastest growing sectors, having enjoyed rapid growth over the last 10 years.
By the end of 2019, it is estimated that there will be in excess of 100,000 registered haulage companies in the UK.
With the transport industry growing and the need for companies to increase fleet size, this is where we at Crowther come in to our own, and are able to offer clients within the transport sector a great range of help and benefits.

Helping You Stay Ahead
As a firm of chartered accountants, we understand the many challenges that the transport industry face on a daily basis. Funding working capital, fleet maintenance & obtaining finance for upgrading & renewal of their transport fleets. We work with clients to review these challenges, identify potential areas of cost savings by reviewing business performance with business owners on at least a quarterly basis. We are delighted to confirm that we are shortly to launch our ‘in house’ Insurance Brokerage service which we are confident will help clients to identify further cost savings on their Insurance renewals as they fall due.
We are also just in the process of opening at new department within our firm, this being an insurance brokerage, so again, Crowthers would be able to source you the best fleet insurance deals, liability insurance and any other insurances that you may need.
If you have any queries, questions or general help improving your business, then feel free to contact us.

Kenneth Howley, Director
We are a HGV fleet transport business based in Castleford West Yorkshire. The firm was established over 30 years ago & is very much a family business.
We own a large fleet of vehicles to cover all our clients transport requirements & work throughout the UK.
The firm was introduced to Crowther Chartered Accountants in January 2018 by David Busfield- Business Development Manager at Crowther who had extensive knowledge of the transport business & the challenges business owners face in this particular sector.
We had moved our accountancy work in 2016 following a recommendation so we were somewhat sceptical that the service & ongoing support could be improved.
David introduced us to Steven Crowther & it quickly became apparent that Crowther were very different in their approach to our business.
The year-end accounts were completed in a very timely manner, Company’s House entries were updated & the overall service & advice was exemplarily.
The firm were looking to make internal changes to make the financial reporting more efficient & Crowther again stepped up & assisted. Monthly Management Information is completed on time which provides us with a much more accurate trading performance & is shared with our Bankers.
As the senior Director I particularly like the proactive support & guidance which Crowther provide & feel that the company is much more in control of its day to day financial operation.
The whole team at Crowther has been very supportive to our business but I would particularly recommend Steven Crowther & David Busfield for their in depth understanding of our business & the continued support they provide.
