Whitefield is a a firm of Accountants and Tax Advisors. We are based on the Isle of Wight, but predominantly work electronically with clients across the UK – although our local clients are, of course, important to us – sometimes its nice to work face to face over coffee! If any of our off Island clients are visiting the Island, they are welcome to call in by appointment to meet us.
A large part of our client base, although not exclusive by any means, are individuals – contractors, freelancers and consultants – working through Personal Service Companies.
Whitefield was established in 2012, but as a divisional buy out from a larger firm, and our senior staff team has been together for nearly 15 years. Many of our clients have been with us long term, in some cases for 25 years or more.
We have no ambition to be the biggest practice, have the sharpest media policy, a feature rich web site or sell our clients dubious tax strategies and financial products. We do strive to look after our clients, and provide practical, independent and honest advice.
Our name, Whitefield, comes from nearby Whitefield Forest.
Core hours are: Monday – Thursday 9-3, Friday 9-1. Email is normally the best way to get in touch, and we try and reply to all email next business day. Most of our staff work from their own home, with an element of flexibility in their working hours, which is why we are not always contactable by phone.
