CLL Accounting & Tax is a Chartered Accountancy practice started in November 2015 by Chris Lockhart FCA, a Chartered Accountant with 30 years’ experience in the profession.  Whilst we have a broad background and service provision, we specialise in supporting start up businesses and our aim is to provide tax advice in real time, identifying problems and opportunities up front.  We aim to provide high quality technical services keeping our overheads low so we can pass the savings on to our clients.

We like to work with our clients to provide a service that is tailored to them and efficient.  We firmly believe that communication is the most important thing to get right in accountancy – not just the numbers.
