The first accountant that you'll love working with

When we speak to business owners about what they want from an accountant, we keep on hearing the same things. Accounting today needs to be about more than doing the compliance stuff. Clients want an accountant who understands their business, communicates in plain English, and helps them to grow.

A few reasons to work with us

Ashton McGill Accounting

You Count. We Count.

Your business matters to us. We’re excited to work with you and help you understand your business finances better. Adding stuff up and making sense of the numbers is what we do. Managing your finances and helping you understand them makes us happy.

Finalist for Xero's Small Firm of the Year

Just as the team touched down in London for Xerocon, we were announced as a Xero Awards finalist for small firm of the year! Back in 2017, we setup Ashton McGill with the aim of truly helping people. Helping them build better businesses, helping them build more purposeful businesses, helping them achieve their big, audacious goals. Two years on, and we’re so proud of the community we’ve grown, and we feel truly lucky to work with such amazing people every day. Being announced as finalists really solidified our sense of purpose and we’re so excited for everything that’s to come.

Super-fast response times

There's nothing worse than an accountant who doesn't return your calls or emails. We know, we've been there! You need someone that's proactive; who speaks to you regularly; who calls you out of the blue to tell you about something they think you need to know. Whether it's Slack, WhatsApp, SMS or our dedicated support service (our average response time is 3.26 hours with 80% of queries answered within the hour), we're here when you need us most!
