Our founders, David Wortham (DW) and David Jaques (DJ), or "The Davids", as they are known hereabouts, are not your regular kind of accountants.

But accountants they certainly are, having between them over sixty years of experience in the profession. And it's important you should know that because it means that no matter what your business or tax priorities are, it's more than likely that one or other of The Davids has been there before and knows exactly how to get you from where you are to where you want to be.

DW specialises in business planning & development and in supporting our third sector clients; whilst DJ, who is our tax partner, relishes tackling the sort of thorny tax problems that give most accountants sleepless nights.

Naturally The Davids don't do it all by themselves. They and their co-director Charlotte Gibbs are supported by a small but highly skilled team whose expertise ranges from bookkeeping and payroll to the preparation of start up business plans, complex charity and corporate accounts and auditing. So no matter what your accounting and taxation needs may be, you can rest assured that we have the solution.


Our Philosophy and Values

Professionalism, first and foremost

We take great pride in applying the highest standards of professionalism in all that we do.  All our team are qualified and undertake regular training to make sure they are up to speed with the latest developments in the fast evolving world of tax law and practice.

Building success

At Wortham Jaques we specialise in helping businesses and charities run successfully, because we are business advisers as well as accountants.  As part of your team we will apply the same skills and resources to your business needs as we do to our own.  That way we can help you to maximise opportunities, overcome challenges, and troubleshoot problems.  After all, we want your business to succeed as much as you do.

Size doesn’t matter

No, it really doesn’t.  You will enjoy the same level of service from Wortham Jaques whether you’re a start-up business, a growing success story, an established operation looking towards succession, or a hard pressed taxpayer struggling with self assessment.  And as to our own size?  Well, let’s put it this way: we’re big enough to solve your tax and business problems, however complex, but still small enough to remember your name when you call.

Certainty over costs

At Wortham Jaques our goal is to offer high value, cost effective services.  We understand that you need certainty over costs and accordingly provide the majority of our services at a competitive fixed fee, agreed with you in advance.  What we will never do is compromise on quality for the sake of cost.  As Red Adair famously said: “If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur”.

Doing what we say

We make and fulfil commitments, meet deadlines, and accept responsibility for our actions. When we make promises, we keep them. If for any reason we are unable to meet your expectations we tell you so and explain the reasons frankly and honestly, with no b***s***. And that's a promise.
