Your needs and ambitions.
Our expert advice.

The origins of Scotland’s largest independent firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers lie in a partnership formed by Bill Johnston and John Carmichael in 1936.

From our beginnings in rural Moray, we’ve grown into one of the country’s leading professional services businesses with a network of offices across Scotland.

With over 650 staff and partners and, as part of the PKF International global network, we are one of the UK’s top 20 accountancy firms, with a global presence in 440 locations in over 150 countries. Our team is headed up by our Chief Executive Sandy Manson.

Our experts use their expertise and experience to act as trusted advisers offering detailed knowledge of your sector and keen insight to meet your individual needs across audit, tax, personal finance and other key areas.

We’ve grown our business on our people’s ability to get to grips with yours.
