About Whyfield and our approach to modern accounting
We were set up while digital replaced analogue accounting in 2014. Therefore, we’re plugged into today’s systems like Xero and Quickbooks, but we made sure to bring over some ideas that’ll never go out of fashion. Visiting you at a time that fits or enabling you to speak directly to our team will never go out of fashion.
That’s why we say you’ll probably pay less and you’ll certainly get more. We invite you to take a look at clients that have switched to us, who used to be just a number…
We are based in Truro, Cornwall and provide accounting services for a whole host of businesses throughout Cornwall and Devon. Wondering how our accounting services could support your business? Check out some of our most recent case studies from a selection of our clients.
We practice under our Licence from the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) and are Registered Bookkeepers™ and fellow members of the IAB (International Association of Bookkeepers) as well as being supervised and regulated for Money Laundering Regulations. We’re also part of the Sage Accountants Club which means we’re up to date will their latest accounting software.
“When you think of accountants, you typically think of nerdy beancounters… Not these guys! They know their stuff, they explain complicated accounting principles using clear and simple language and they’re all great fun to work with."
Don’t get us wrong; those firms have good people and know what they’re doing. But, the problem with other accountancies is that most were set up in the last century (or even the one before!) and retain similar hierarchical structures. Heritage is good, but it doesn’t offer you value in today’s modern accountancy world. In today’s world, you should be able to assess financial performance whenever you want from your smartphone. Gone are the days when you need to pay for teams of people to direct, manage and administer your account.
Whyfield Directors, Laura and Roxane, have been at the helm of this award-winning accountancy firm in Cornwall since it started in 2014. Their story and friendship, however, go back over 2 decades.
Friends from the age of 11, they became inseparable at school and when starting out on their accountancy careers, they would continue to get together on their lunch breaks. It’s no surprise they eventually joined forces to manage an accountancy practice of their own.
Despite being so close as friends, they enjoy very different areas of accounting. While Roxane prefers to get more involved in tax, Laura is often out & about meeting new clients.
They bring their individual strengths together to create a winning balance in the running of Whyfield. When Roxane isn’t managing large workloads, she’s heading up internal operations while Laura gets her hands dirty with strategic planning and business support.
The vision and lifelong friendship of these two school friends are at the very core of Whyfield and what makes this accountancy firm so different.
We want our clients to experience the riches that come from having such a long-lasting relationship at the foundations of a business.
