The Firm

The origins of the firm go back to 1995 when Mark Kirkbride started

the practice to provide excellent quality tax advice of a level

not often available outside large firms.  The practice is based at Sezincote

between Moreton in Marsh and Stow on the Wold.

The ethos of the practice is to combine the quality service

one would expect from a city firm with the value for money and

personal service normally associated with a smaller practice.  

We do not pretend to be a one-stop shop.  In fact our experience

shows that it is increasingly difficult for a small firm to try and compete on

this basis.  Legislative requirements are becoming increasingly more onerous

and it is, in our view, virtually impossible for a general practitioner to keep

abreast of all the necessary knowledge without substantial support.

Therefore we have established the practice with a particular emphasis

on taxation matters.  Our expertise is derived from the founder’s

30 years experience in dealing with the tax affairs of businesses and individuals,

ranging from straightforward tax return completion work to the most

complex of business transactions and trust work.  The practice has particular

expertise in the complex capital gains and inheritance tax

issues of the agricultural sector.

Although we do provide a straightforward tax return completion service our

aim is to take on clients who wish us to go beyond the figures on the form

and to provide proactive tax planning advice tailored to meet their own

and their family’s circumstances.  

In fact we do not see us ourselves as being in competition with other

firms of accountants, but instead as providing an ancillary service to help

with unusual or one off transactions.  An increasing proportion of our

work is derived from referrals from other firms of accountants or solicitors who

ask us to look at specific cases where tax advice beyond that normally

provided by a general practitioner is required.
