Chartered Accountants Manchester – An established and trusted firm

Working with you to make your business better

Accountants Manchester – What makes us Different?

These are the 6 qualities that define our firm. Not qualities defined in a top down exercise by the partners, but ones which were produced by the team as a whole. Qualities we all own, qualities which we all abide by every day, qualities we use in our recruitment process, staff reviews, in reviewing where we’ve done well and where we’ve done not so well.

We take these qualities into the work we do with business owners, where we identify their business goals, provide timely, high quality business advice and planning to and help them to achieve their goals.

So if you visit our offices and you meet the  Manchester accountancy team with Post It notes stuck to their foreheads, please forgive them, they’re only Human and are having Fun!

Client success stories


The organisation has been in operation since 2014. But in 2016, it found itself in a difficult position where the Landlord of the property from which they operated (Eden House) was being put up for sale and Domain Care North West would be unable to renew their lease on the building.


James Scott were already their accountants and helped Domain Care North West Limited to broker a finance arrangement, in order to purchase the building, thus securing the future of the organisation and allowing them to go from strength to strength.

“Without the help of James Scott Accountants we would not be in this building right now and certainly would not be looking at expansion. They were invaluable during a difficult time a few years ago and have since helped us on a day to day basis to know manage and account for our finances. Brendan and all of the staff at James Scott Accountants are extremely friendly and professional and never let us down.”
