Who we are

The Directors

Our firm was established in Bromley by Brian Grugeon in the 1930s. The current directors, Andrew Roberts and Karen Cheeseman, have been running the practice together since 30 April 2009. We continue the firm's tradition of providing  a service tailored to your specific needs. Our aim is a totally stress free experience for tax and accounts clients throughout Bromley, Chislehurst, Beckenham, Sidcup, Orpington, South East London, Kent and beyond.

Andrew has many years of experience in providing accounts, tax planning and business services to a wide range of clients. He trained with a City firm of Chartered Accountants and is heavily involved in corporate accounts and strategic planning, with a particular interest in IT. We ceased to be Registered Auditors at the end of 2012.

Karen started out with a firm of Chartered Accountants with offices in Dartford, Ruislip and Temple Chambers. Formerly she was the Practice Tax Manager and has been with the firm since 1987. She thrives on dealing with small businesses and has particular expertise in the preparation and timely submission of personal and partnership Tax Returns.

Other Professional Staff

Clare Higgins joined us on leaving college in 1998. She subsequently achieved the AAT qualification.

Jill Phillips arrived in 2003 to gain practical accounting experience following completion of her Accounting Technician examinations.

Daniel Reed is a trainee chartered accountant, having already achieved the AAT qualification. He provides the much needed football conversation. As a Spurs fan though he needs your sympathy.
