About Saffery Champness

Progressive people

Founded in 1855, Saffery Champness characterizes its outlook as progressive and its style as personal.  Its “concept of service is to solve problems, exploit opportunities and turn advice into action.”  It stresses that its sharp focus is a strength.  “We do not pretend to be all things to all people€”and we choose to focus our services in particular across eight areas of business that between them comprise a wide cross-section of businesses, individuals and organizations.” 

It offers expert tax, business and financial advice, with particular expertise in the provision of advice to private clients and business owners.  Its services include accounting and audit, business advisory, corporate finance, litigation support, offshore services, payroll, tax, trusts and VAT.  Saffery Champness’s audit is designed to be as practical and productive as possible.  At the end of the process, clients receive a report detailing important topics, such as how to improve accounting systems and internal control.  Tax advisory services comprise a major part of the firm’s work.  Specialists work to mitigate clients’ taxation exposure while ensuring compliance.  Deal advice is given by Saffery Champness Corporate Finance Ltd, which is FSA-authorized and regulated. 

The firm advises across several sectors, including media and entertainment, property, travel and not-for-profit.  It is an acknowledged leader in landed estates, specializing in advising owners on the protection and enhancement of their assets.  Its clients own more than 2.5 million acres across the UK.  Work in the not-for-profit sector is one of the fastest-growing areas in Saffery Champness’s practice. Saffery Champness belongs to Nexia International, a global association with firms in over 100 countries.  Nexia is now the ninth-largest global provider of audit and accounting services, with a combined turnover exceeding £1 billion.
