Client Services

Most of our commercial client businesses are managed by people who own them. Through our many years experience of dealing with owner-managed businesses, we understand how entrepreneurs think and the stages in which their businesses develop.

As a result, in addition to audit and accounting work, we have built up a wide range of specialist services to support you as your business grows and develops. We have developed significant experience in supporting growing businesses through every stage of their development. To do so, our partners formulate a deep understanding of the marketplace and environment in which each client operates.

Client Testimonials

"In my experience, Kingston Smith has a comprehensive understanding of the position of individuals who are owner/managers of family businesses. Consequently, they have assisted far beyond the day-to-day business activities and helped in a variety of key areas such as tax planning, pensions, and strategic planning for the business.  I like the close, professional working relationship with individuals at Kingston Smith. It reassures me that they fully understand my circumstances and aspirations. Their avoidance of jargon is also refreshing and again makes for better communication and understanding."
Bernard Nelligan, Managing Director, S.L.E. Ltd

"We choose to work with Kingston Smith because they combine a professionalism and attention to detail with a friendly approach. We have an excellent working relationship with them and they have made a real effort to understand the context in which we work and what is important to our business needs. Their detailed knowledge of our practice has frequently helped us to identify problems (and solutions) in our own business. The Kingston Smith team are not just focused on numbers – they genuinely work in partnership with us to help us to achieve our business objectives."
