Meet the Directors...

We believe that we should employ people not just accountants. Time and time again, it is said that it is the person that makes the business relationship what it is and we are rightly proud of all of staff, not just for their professional skill and competance but also to how they apply themselves to their work. At Atkins Ferrie we believe that all our staff should have client contact and "take ownership of the task/job". We have an extensive range of business contacts which helps when we need to look at financing, grant funding, legal advice etc.
