About and Contact


Whitefield is a a firm of Accountants and Tax Advisers.  We are based on the Isle of Wight, but work with clients across the UK using modern technology.  Our local clients are important to us – sometimes its easier to work face to face.   If any of our off Island clients are visiting the Island, they are welcome to call in by appointment to meet us.

We operate in three main sectors:

  • Local Isle of Wight Busineses
  • Contractors, freelancers and consultants – working through Personal Service Companies.
  • Yoga Teachers, Yoga studios and other Mind / Body businesses as well though our daughter brand YogaTax

Whitefield was established in 2012, as a divisional buy out from a larger firm, and our senior staff team has been together for nearly 25 years.  Many of our clients have been with us long term, in some cases for 30 years or more.  Our name, Whitefield, comes from Whitefield Forest near to our offices.

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.

However we do strive to look after our clients, and provide practical, independent and honest advice.
