What Our Clients Say


We switched to Crowther from another accountant to take advantage of their expertise in Xero, which we were keen to move to.


The team at Crowther challenged us on the financial forecasts, discussed these fully with us and made amendments & strengthened our business plan. Crowther liaised with our lenders and our request for financial support was approved.


Crowther are an accountancy that have a real vibrancy and actually make accountancy enjoyable and exciting (something I thought was impossible!).


During the first couple of months Crowther’s team recovered considerable amounts of money by reclaiming fines previously paid to HMRC. Our wages bill was reduced, unnecessary time spent on out of date accounting methods were removed, and in turn further costs were saved.


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.


Steven & the team at Crowther understand their clients; their needs & the close relationship that must exist to ensure businesses can grow & prosper. We will continue to recommend Crowther as we build this excellent mutual relationship between our two companies.


I benefitted from Crowther’s services in the following ways: their patience and professionalism in dealing with the many different requests from the purchasers during the due diligence process which was protracted and their guidance and support throughout the process, always promptly answering phone calls and emails and being available whenever needed.


We are based in London and Crowther Accountants are 200 miles away. Initially therefore, we questioned the wisdom of our advisor’s advice to meet an accountant that far away. However, we knew straightaway when we met Steve Crowther and his Team that they were the right match for us.


Steve Crowther at Crowther Chartered Accountants has been my accountant for over 30 years and I can honestly say that over that period, I have only ever received the correct advice and an exemplary service. As a business owner myself, this peace of mind has proved invaluable.


“Since swapping to Crowther’s Accountants around 4 years ago, we have always found them to be very professional, easy & pleasant to deal with, efficient, and available when needed and so can fully endorse their services”.


“We have used Crowther’s Chartered Accounts for several years now and they have been alongside us in growing from a startup to a now multi-million-pound business. They have provided a wealth of knowledge and supported this growth by understanding our business and ensuring we deliver on all the required financial filing and reports with a clear and concise approach for us to feel confident we are in safe hands.”


“Crowther Chartered Accountants assisted us with the raising of finance and the completion of the purchase of an Anaerobic Digestion Plant for the farm.

They helped all the way through the transaction dealing with the due diligence and ensured that the process was completed in a timely and organised manner.

Their involvement was faultless and the support they offered was invaluable.”
