About Black and White Chartered Certified Accountants, Business Accountants

Business is about building relationships. That’s why we’re driving accountancy away from a traditional, number-crunching model towards a more collaborative approach, a partnership of trust between business owner and business accountant.

Black and White Chartered Certified Accountants are a team of experienced business accountants and book keepers offering a refreshing and dynamic approach, ranging from tax compliance to strategic business advice, all based on our understanding of your accounts, your business and, most importantly, of you.

Our work ethic

Black and White Chartered Certified Accountants are a small, friendly firm with offices in Hampshire and Surrey. We’ve been helping sole traders and SMEs in Hampshire and Surrey for more than 20 years! Together we have over 150 years combined experience and have a strong team of accountants, book keepers and payroll experts who understand your business’s financial requirements.

We are an approachable, happy, office who will go that extra mile to ensure the job gets done! We give you the peace of mind of knowing that there will be no end-of-year rush to file your accounts and that you won’t pay more tax than you need to.

Helping our clients make the right decisions in business is what gets us out of bed in the morning!

Building relationships

Some of our clients like to do their own thing and just want to email us their figures at the end of the year, and that’s fine.

However, as modern thinking business accountants we believe in building a strong personal relationship. We don’t send emails when we can pick up the phone and arrange a face-to-face meeting. We’ve even based ourselves in beautiful period premises in the village of Herriard, Hampshire and in the Surrey town of Egham to encourage our clients to come and visit us, as we want every bit of your experience with us to be positive.

But we’re also honest with you and we will ask the difficult questions needed to build solid foundations to your business strategy. This way, we can offer the complete view you need to keep control of your business and make the right decisions.

Your success is our success

We add real value to the information held within your accounts. Our team of business accountants and book keepers provide honest and timely advice at every stage of your business journey. From start-up, to expansion, to your desired exit plan and resultant freedom.

There is an Arabic saying: “Before you choose your road, choose your travelling companion“.

Let Black and White Chartered Certified Accountants be that trusted companion on your journey towards success.
