We’re experts at numbers – but we don’t treat our clients like one.
With Spicer & Co, you’re assured of friendly (and jargon-free) support.
We’re a family firm
Spicer & Co started at the kitchen table.
My career began when I trained and qualified as a chartered accountant with a local firm, working my way up to audit manager. I then held UK finance controller roles for a FTSE-100 company and a UK subsidiary of a company quoted on the New York Stock Exchange. When my daughters came along, I became a home-based accountant, building up a roster of regular clients through word of mouth.
Ten years later my husband, Steve – who worked in the construction industry – was made redundant. And we had one of those lightbulb moments! Why don’t we team up to grow the accountancy practice as a family firm? In 2013, Spicer & Co became a reality when we moved into our first office in Dunstable.
Friendly and approachable
Since then our accountancy firm has grown – I’m still head honcho, Steve is director of business development and we have a fantastic team working with us. But we’ve never got too big for our boots. We’re known for our friendly and personal approach, always ready for a jargon-free chat over a coffee.
We do more than just accountancy. We build long-term relationships with you and pro-actively work with you to help your business to prosper. We’re not just here for tax returns and VAT – we’re here to set your business up for success.
