Clearline Business Consultants are a local firm who understand the needs of owner managed businesses, but can provide the services normally only associated with large, corporate firms.

We deal with small businesses, from start-ups to turnovers of up to £6.5m. As a result we work much more closely with our clients than traditional accountants.

We like to get to know your business inside out, from what your dreams and aspirations are, to how you take your tea. This close relationship helps us work together in identifying both problems and opportunities within your business. We do not just want to help improve profits and encourage growth, but to help take your business where you want it to go.

We also provide all the traditional accountants services; accounts, tax returns, VAT, tax advice etc. However at Clearline we want to see people make the most out of their business.

A unique feature of our service is fixed price agreements – we dislike hidden charges as much as you, so we aim for transparent, easy to understand and tailored fees. Once we have established your needs we will give you a guaranteed fully inclusive price from the start. This will give you peace of mind and no surprise bills.
