About us

Our work is about more than just numbers. We want to be your trusted guide, sharing our insight and experience so you can make confident decisions.

Our history

Established in 1969 by Stuart Burton and David Sweet, our traditional practice has evolved into a regional centre of excellence to support individuals, companies and charitable organisations with their finances.

Now, we are proud to provide services including accounting, personal tax advice, assurance assignments, business support, as well as guidance for individuals and businesses from start-ups to well-established groups.

At Burton Sweet, we have a growing team of experienced accountants, advisers, consultants and specialists who are experts in their fields. Our driving philosophy is to continually and consistently improve our service to best meet the requirements of our clients.

We believe…

Technical knowledge of specific tax initiatives, legislative matters and HMRC updates are certainly vital elements of our approach. However, underpinning this practical knowledge is a culture which champions a personable, but professional interactions, cultivating more productive relationships with our clients.

It is our aim to develop a thorough understanding of the unique opportunities and challenges that each of our clients face.

At Burton Sweet, we encourage our employees to broaden their existing skillsets and develop new expertise, so they are more qualified and capable for the future. Alongside diligence, we value positivity, ensuring our offices are both productive and pleasant places to be.

Beyond the services we provide and the sector we operate in, we are predominantly guided by the needs of our clients. Our most important goals are to free them from the hassle their finances might cause, so they can extract the most from their money.
