The specialist agricultural team at Crowthers Chartered Accountants led by Jonathan Crowther and Sophie Howard have always championed their personal hands-on approach when acting for farmers. Jonathan explained that ”the launch of the bespoke rural office in Twyning is the natural next step in providing the complete financial solution to all our farming clients”.
Having nurtured the development of agricultural services at Crowthers for over 15 years, their team many of whom come from farming backgrounds themselves, now provide bespoke accounting and taxation services for over 200 farming clients. This growth in farming clients is based on specialist farming and taxation knowledge, plain speaking and good old-fashioned customer service. A farmer’s daughter herself, Sophie appreciates the challenges farmers face on a day-to-day basis and therefore strives to provide an accounting service that takes care of all the routine financial matters, allowing her clients to get on with running their farm.
Sophie, who will be the Director in charge of this flagship office said, ”Crowthers general practices will continue to be based in Cheltenham, Pershore and Ledbury – spanning the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. It’s a huge area. We wanted to centralise our farming expertise in one place so it could be readily available to all our clients, regardless of their location. Twyning, a village that borders each of the counties and is easily accessible via the M5 and M50 motorways, seemed the perfect fit. There’s ample parking too! Of course, our existing offices will continue to do general practice work, so if that location suits our clients better for a meeting, that’s fine.”
Crowthers agricultural specialists, managed by Lucinda Davenport, will be relocated to their new offices from 2 September 2019, and visitors can be assured of a very warm welcome from a team who really understand their needs. The move, which is driven by a desire to provide a truly cost-effective accountancy and taxation service to farmers, will ensure all clients have access to Crowthers agricultural expertise.
