About Us

We specialise in providing tax-planning and accounting services, exclusively for property investors. We also deal with most non-property companies if our property clients also have non-property interests e.g. a contractor / consultant company.

Our team is led by Stephen Fay FCA, an experienced property investor with a substantial property portfolio, built up since 1999. Stephen is well-known within the property investment industry and writes for several national property magazines, and often speaks at national and local property events. This combination of expert technical tax knowledge, combined with real-life property investment experience, enables us to offer property investors a unique service. Most of the team have been with the company for 5+ years and have a wealth of experience in helping property investors with their tax-planning and accounts requirements.
