Thomas Westcott Chartered Accountants

Thomas Westcott is a long established West Country firm of Chartered Accountants offering a full service provision to owner managed businesses of all shapes and sizes.

With our network of local offices throughout Devon & Somerset we are close enough to you and your business to offer a proper face to face business relationship.

As business owners ourselves, we know what it is like to run a business; we know it can be a lonely existence but we are here to be a confidant and sounding board to you and a critical friend to your business.

We can help with whatever keeps you awake at night (from an accountancy perspective…!); maybe you are worried about paying too much tax, what you should be doing about cloud software or what could be in those nasty brown envelopes from HM Revenue & Customs? We are only a phone call away and if your business is based in Devon, you will only be a few miles away from one of our offices!


Do you only see your accountant once a year typically…?
Do you have to go to him/her and ask about particular issues…?
Is your accountant sometimes hard to get hold of and doesn’t respond to e-mails and phone messages quickly? Do you find that you are continuously up against filing deadlines and payment deadlines for tax and VAT?
Like ‘The Prisoner’ are you treated like a number rather than a valued client?
Do you feel taken for granted?
Are you only dealt with by a Manager and not the Partner you saw when you first became a client?

If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’ then you may be with the wrong accountant and you should consider your options!

Focussing on client service they offer a fantastic and transparent service to businesses.

Fiona explained: “When I set up MBC Accountants, I wanted it to be more like a ‘shop’, breaking down all the barriers of a standard accountant office, friendly staff and a pick-and-mix list of services, we even have a price list!

Clients love our fixed fee approach, we also provide a 6 week turnaround service as standard for all yearend work which is a rare offering as most small businesses will know.”

MBC Accountants are a Xero silver partner, Quick Book Pro advisors and regularly use Sage, SAP Business 1, FreeAgent, MoneyWorks plus anything else that clients use.

“Adopting cloud based accounting software in 2014 has put us at the head of the game,” explained Fiona. “People love to be able to see their numbers whenever and wherever they want to, plus the whole accountant-clientrelationship can be far more interactive as we can both see everything at the same time.

We like to work alongside our clients, effectively providing a finance department for them.

We can look after anything with a ‘£’ sign – so of course all the year-end accounts and tax returns plus book-keeping, VAT, payroll etc.

We always offer a one hour, completely free, no obligation meeting so please come and arrange a meeting – we would love to talk to you.”
