Every year we receive a professional, pro-active and efficient service from Roy and the team at Sturgess who assist our company with the preparation and filing of our annual accounts. With a keen eye for detail and first class advice they have also helped us to shape the way that we look after our own record keeping. The service is affordable and there are no hidden charges. Thoroughly recommended!

  Tracy Hain

As a small business owner, Roy and his team looked after all my taxes, both business and personal as well as VAT filing. Having not much interest or knowledge of that side of things, I just handed it over. They looked after it all perfectly with warmth and professionalism. I wish I could take Roy with me to my new business in Canada, but wish him and his team well. I couldn’t recommend them more. Thank you for all you’ve done!

Fuite Detection have used Sturgess and Co for accounting matters for several years now; we have received consistently excellent service and would not hesitate to highly recommend their services.

  Simon Grove

After 2 years of continuous struggles with another accountant, I found these guys. I simply can’t praise them enough. Accurate detail, timely accounting and easy to use processes. These guys are experts in their field and all competitively priced.
Trust me you won’t find better, stop looking and call them.

  Jessica Kuffour

Sturgess and Co are always on hand to help. No query too big or small. Their approach is extremely efficient and professional. We’ve been using them for several years and we know we are always well looked after. Thank you!


We’ve worked with Sturgess and Co. for the past five years and, in our view, this is time enough to say without fear of contradiction that this highly professional team is second to none for the thoroughness and speed of their business accounting services.
Beyond this, all team members, without exception, are both approachable and personable.
So... if you’re looking for a company to handle your accounting needs, whether these be business, payroll processing or personal tax affairs, then stop your search now, and give Sturgess a call right away. Take it from us, you won’t find better!

I have used Sturgess Accounting for two years now to file accounts for my life coaching practice. They have provided impecable service (albeit their messaging style is on a short, almost abrupt side), answered my questions whenever I didn’t understand something and submitted my accounts to HMRC and the Companies House in a timely manner. I am planning to contnue using their services.

  Robert Mitchell

We have been submitting our guest house accounts to Sturgess and Co Ltd. for a number of years.
Being in the hospitality industry there is a lot to consider with variable monthly income. Sturgess have made it very easy for us with advise as and when necessary. An excellent online accounting service.


Very professional and reliable company. Transparent and fast responses.

Hi All,
Sturgress and co has looked after my company accounts for the last 10 years and I have had pleasant experience with them, all my paye, vat, tax returns were done on time every time and I can recommend them for any accounting solution.

  Inmobahia Empuriabrava

Sturgess & Co. has always been attentive, punctual and accommodating. They "consult" rather than "assume", which is good for both parties, and they inspire professionalism in their field. I fully recommend using their services.

Their service has been extremely professional and prompt. I will be back to them when this years accounts are due.

Sturgess Accountant are managing my company accounts for last 10 years and I have to admit that they have not given me single chance of disappointment. I would highly recommend Sturgess Accountants for any small and medium business looking for end to end account guidance.

  Steve Brown

I have used the services of Sturgess and Co Ltd for over 5 years and spoken to Roy on several occasions and always found him and his staff to be very efficient and professional. This is exactly what you need from an on-line accountancy service.

  Jo Slater

Blaine and Roy have been my accountants for 5 years. Their care, Attention to detail, freely given advice and professionalism are fantastic. Also they keep the costs very reasonable which in this climate is very, very helpful. I cannot fault these people and will definitely be using their firm again and again. Highly recommended - you will be in safe hands. Jo

  Olusola Fadero

Sturgess have been managing my accounts for nearly 10 years. They are not interested in doing unnecessary work for you which helps to keep their prices down. Their prices have remained stable for the last 5 years. Roy is a star. He is very quick and responsive in answering queries.

  N P

I am a medical doctor. I had my company and personal tax return done at Sturgess, by Roy. The reason for the switch was that my previous accountant - although good - could not be trusted to do things promptly, tax return always used to take weeks. With Sturgess everything was done and dusted in a few days. They gave a fair quote and stuck to it. They tried to find ways of reducing my tax bill as far as they could and again gave a fair quote for any potential additional work. That is all I ask for from an accountant. Trust, speed and fair pricing.

  Rachel Quinn

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sturgess and Co Limited. They took care of all my tax and payroll needs seamlessly. The most important service they provided me was explaining things in layman’s terms, so I could understand them. They always took the time. I’ll be eternally grateful. They were also good value for money which is high on my priority list.

  Jan Potter

I have been a customer of Sturgess and Co for 9 years and during that time I have had a very thoroughly accounting experience.
As a new contractor early in my career, Roy and the team directed me through some unknown territory with ease and I always felt I could ask those ‘daft’ questions.
If you’re looking for a superbly detailed accountant, with a sense of humour and integrity, look no further.

  Giles Livingstone

Roy and the team at Sturgess have been handling the annual accounts for a couple of my companies for a couple of years now. Always very responsive and excellent value for money compared to many other firms I have used. They are always available to act on short notice where necessary and do a first class job. I would recommend them particularly for small companies than need a simple set of accounts etc.

  Mick English

Best accountant I have had. Roy and staff are always helpful. Can’t praise them enough. Definitely on my Xmas card list.

  Louise Curwen

Roy & his team are quick, responsive & very good value, I can highly recommend them.

  Craig Leon

Accounts are done quickly and accurately. Most helpful.

  Thomas Fitch

Fantastic work chaps.

  Freddie Savundra

Highly recommended.

  Michael Bedford

Very good, quick and efficient service. What attracted me to them was the fact they had their prices on the site and they did not invite me in for a pointless meeting like most other accountants. I had an emergency and they were able to sort it out wonderfully.

  Vasco Bishop

My first and lasting observation about Sturgess and Co Limited is that they are committed to be open and transparent. My tax accounts have been professionally prepared and submitted with a forecast which has always been verified by HM Revenue Department.
Two years ago Sturgess calculated X amount to be paid but the taxman blundered and overpaid me. Sturgess was surprised and sure enough the revenue department worked out the error and took their money back. The moral of the story is Sturgess was ahead of the game.
Fantastic service.

  Colin MacGregor

I’m retired and run a tiny database business. It’s purpose is to provide a professional case management system to dispute mediation services at a very low price that non-profits and charities can afford. My accounting needs are for simplicity, excellent service and low cost.
I’ve been with Sturgess & Co for several years and they’ve provided exactly what I need, in an exemplary way. My previous experience was of accounting relationships that were inflexible in their demands and too time consuming for a micro business. For people with needs like mine, Roy and his team are an outstanding class act.

  Garry Smith

I first engaged Sturgess & Co to take over the accounts for a charity I was managing at the time and I was glad I did. Not only did this move save the charity significant funds but the process was so much less time consuming and very professional. As a result I then asked them to look after the accounts of 2 social enterprises I was managing director of and was more than happy that the same high standards applied there too. This was 14 years ago.
Not long after I set up my own limited company and to be fair it was a no brainer to employ Sturgess and Co to look after my own company accounts. To say I have had no complaints in over 12 years of business says it all. In fact dealing with the same people, Roy, Mia and Blaine, has meant that the service provided has been seamless throughout, no being passed from pillar to post. The current turbulent times have caused a massive disruption to my business and to cashflow for sure, that is when you learn to value the responsiveness of the people you are working with as they strive to help you through the difficulties many businesses are experiencing.
I cannot recommend Sturgess & Co highly enough.
