About

Bon Accord Accountancy is a growing firm of independent business advisers based in Aberdeen and Shetland.

From humble beginnings just off Aberdeen’s Bon Accord Square (hence the name) the firm has grown through a combination of natural growth and acquisition.

We offer a full range of business advisory services tailored to meet the needs of owner managed businesses and individuals. While our existing client base includes private tax clients and a growing number of multi-million pound turnover companies, our main source of fee income is from owner managed businesses.

We are pleased to offer our clients a fixed fee service and pro-active tax saving advice. Please contact us using the contact form on this site.
