Townends was established over 100 years ago as a small rural practice of Chartered Accountants. Since then the firm has grown to what it is today and is now one of the largest accountancy practices in the area with offices in Goole, Pontefract, York and Selby. Our core client base is owner-managed businesses and we act for clients throughout the UK and worldwide.
We expanded our traditional accountancy practice many years ago to meet the needs of our clients by adding complementary services through JMG Townends Insurance Brokers and Townends Wealth Management Limited to create a ‘one-stop shop’ financial services group.
Working closely with our clients to become their Trusted Advisor we have a first class reputation for what we deliver. “Professional, knowledgeable, proactive but above all approachable” is how our clients view us. As a client you will have immediate access to an experienced team to deal with all of your personal financial and business issues as they arise.
Whether it be everyday matters including bookkeeping, VAT and payroll or more specialist areas such as tax mitigation strategies, business sales and acquisitions or the more difficult events in life such as divorce, business failure or death – we are here to talk to, to advise and most importantly to help you plan. Quite simply we believe that a more ‘joined up’ solution is appropriate in many personal financial and business situations.
At Townends we believe that every business and family is unique and the ‘Townends Philosophy’ is our own unique approach to providing a tailor made financial plan and solutions for your business and family needs. Our objective is to provide timely, proactive advice that will exceed your expectations.
We appreciate that only in time can we gain your trust, so that you know when we say we can and will do something, we do it. We hope to get that opportunity.
