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 and beyond.

We are one of the UK’s top 10 accountancy firms and our team is headed up by our Chief Executive Andrew Walker.  Johnston Carmichael is the PKF member firm in Scotland, a family of legally independent member firms with over 400 offices, operating in 150 countries.

Our team of sharp minds 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.
