Smith Craven is a firm of chartered accountants established in 1928. It is today one of the largest independent firms in the area, operating from offices in Doncaster, Sheffield, Worksop and Chesterfield.
Martyn Langley, an accountant with the firm, believes Chesterfield is a fantastic place to do business. He says: “The town is forward thinking and benefits from a mix of thriving traditional business and modern innovation.
“As Chesterfield Champions, we have gained access to senior networking opportunities and priority invitations to key development events in the town.
“We are proud to associate ourselves with a powerful network of other businesses that believe in Chesterfield, as a contemporary and desirable place to do business.
“Through our work, we endeavour to drive forward the positive promotion of the town.’’
Smith Craven has extensive experience of working with private limited companies, subsidiaries of foreign companies, local authorities and NFP Organisations. As such, they have significant expertise in the Private, Public and Charitable Sectors.
The firm’s impressive expansion and reputation over recent years has resulted from the ‘hands on’ approach adopted by the partners and associates, listening to clients’ needs and working closely with them to meet their objectives. This methodology has been supported by highly trained and experienced professional staff who are dedicated to the success of each client.
The firm has developed its core business by providing specialist knowledge in raising finance for business start-ups or expansion, corporate and personal taxation, audit, management accounts, payroll services, business coaching and due diligence investigations.
The organisation’s key strength is that they not only ensure clients gain access to extensive experience and knowledge of best practice, but also provide access to sector specialists who know specific industries and any technical risk areas. The structure of the firm enables clients to obtain a comprehensive service, as departments work closely together to ensure clients requirements and ambitions are met.
