About Us

How can we help you?
Whether your business is a small start-up, an established and growing company, or is quoted on the stock market, we can tailor our services to suit your needs.

With roots as far back as 1788, Chantrey Vellacott is one of the oldest accountancy firms and professional business advisers in the UK.

Large enough to supply a vast range of services, we are also compact enough to devise tailored, professional solutions to suit clients’ individual needs. This is achieved through establishing responsive, proactive working relationships.

Our talented and reliable people are our principal asset. We firmly believe that we will only fulfil our philosophy of providing excellent services if we recruit and develop great teams of people.

We work with quoted companies and privately owned businesses from across a wide range of commercial sectors. Our clients include professional partnerships, regulatory bodies, charities and other not for profit organisations, public sector bodies and private clients.

DFK

As one of the largest member firms of DFK International, we are able to offer our clients overseas support. The advantage of the DFK association is that we have a greater degree of flexibility which ensures the highest possible quality of delivery. It allows us to work with clients to choose the most suitable firms to use in each country, rather than having to use any particular companies.
