I’m Adam! I started A Shaw & Co. over 10 years ago. I’m a fully qualified Chartered Accountant with over 35 years’ experience in practice and in industry. My firm is a member of and regulated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales, the largest accountancy body in the UK.

I spent time in the City working for HSBC, ANZ and Bank of America alongside multi-national companies including British Airways, Disney and BP. I started A Shaw & Co. to get away from the impersonal, multinational corporate world and to work with and help small, local businesses.

Personal, long lasting relationships are important to me so your point of contact will always be me. That said, I have access to resources that would make a large firm envious whether it’s a pile of bookkeeping, a complicated tax situation or just keeping up with the latest business or tax news.

Outside of work I like to keep fit and get into the great outdoors. I care about people and the world in which we live. I believe we all have a role to play and we all can make a difference, whether to ourselves, to the person next to us or to the world. Our businesses are our livelihood but we should control them rather than the other way round. They can and should be fun not monsters and they can be a force for good.

My clients

I help many different types of businesses including: carpenters, tree surgeons, hair salons, consultants, contractors, cafes, marketing agencies, recruitment consultants, online shops, publishers, conference organisers, software companies, film & TV companies, distilleries, training companies, architects and photographers.

The one thing my clients have in common is they’re all small with turnover (that’s sales) ranging from around £40,000 to £750,000. Unless they’re start ups in which case their turnover is a big round zero!

Whatever you do, there’s a place here for you!
