About us

At Christopher Young’s accountancy and taxation practice we provide a personal level of service and care to all our clients whilst maintaining a high level of technical excellence normally associated with national firms. We apply knowledge, experience and imagination to all of our work and continue where other accountants leave off.

We operate from offices in East and West Sussex and serves businesses and individuals throughout London and South East England. We provide a general practice service together with specialist services for taxation, and farming businesses.

Our services are specifically tailored to suit clients’ needs. All clients receive the benefit of regular face to face meetings and we make the effort to explain your accounts and tax returns. We believe the most important thing an accountant can do is help a client identify and articulate what they really want out of their business and their life, and then help them to achieve it. Unlike many firms of accountants, we do not sub-contract our work and therefore you can be sure that work is carried out by someone who knows and understands you and your business.

We look after the personal financial and tax affairs of many private clients and provide specialist tax advice to other professionals.
