MAKING TAX SIMPLE AND STRESS-FREE
TAILORING OUR SERVICES TO FIT YOU PERFECTLY.
Bambridge Accountants was founded over 10 years ago with the vision of making tax easier for creative industry professionals.
With an understanding and appreciation for what it takes to be a creative industry professional, we are constantly developing and adapting our service to suit the different creative industry professions.
In 2019, we introduced the 100%online scheme, which allows our clients to have their tax return produced 100% online. This means that clients do not need to worry about scheduling in calls or finding the time to drop documents into our office. Filing your tax return has never been easier.
US Expatriates are another major fundamental to our business. We work with both creative and non-creative US expatriates to ensure they are up to date with their filing obligations and saving money against tax.
In 2017, we launched our New York office. Our New York office is a sister company to Bambridge Accountants UK and is focused on supporting creative professionals in the US. We also support our UK clients in the US when they are on tour or considering moving to the US for work.
We are one of the fastest growing firms in the UK and was listed as number 121 in the FT1000 in 2019.
