Bambridge Accountants was formed over 10 years ago with the vision of making tax easier for creative industry professionals and UK expats. 

Over the past 10 years we have built a true understanding and appreciation for what it takes to be a creative industry professional and formed a service that works specifically around unusual schedules, different time zones and the many other variations within the industry. 

With creative professionals at the heart of Bambridge, we have built our services to work seamlessly with the often international nature of creative industry jobs. We are specialist in cross-border taxation, UK and US tax.

Furthermore, we have formed a service that can be performed using email contact only. This is to suit creative professionals that are short-for-time, but would like to stay ahead on their taxes.

An award-winning author with over 10 years experience. Alistair established Bambridge Accountants in 2010 after finding that the traditional approach of accountancy firms was not reaching the far-reaching needs of creatives worldwide! Dedicating his practice to supporting creative individuals, Bambridge Accountants is a boutique accountancy firm focused on keeping creative professionals up to date with the latest tax reliefs and regulations, providing expert advice on areas including creative industry tax relief, the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), and research and development tax relief.

With recognition for the international nature of many creative industry professionals work, Alistair sculpted Bambridge Accountants into a firm that supports not only US and UK creatives within their country of citizenship, but also those living abroad.

Alistair holds the following qualifications: Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser in the UK, Enrolled Agent in the US and Chartered Professional Accountant in Canada. He was included in the Spears 500 2018 - the guide is an annual publication that recognises the top private client advisers.

Alistair is focused on ensuring Bambridge Accountants continual development and adaptation to suit creative professionals wants and needs.
