About us

We are different to other accountants

We work much more closely with our clients than traditional accountants. We also have a much smaller number of clients than normal and are selective in the clients that we act for. We want to get to know our clients businesses inside out, enabling us to easily identify problems and spot opportunities. We want to help improve profits and encourage growth.

A unique feature of our service is fixed price agreements

Once we have established your needs we will give you a guaranteed fully inclusive price from the start. This will give you peace of mind and no surprise bills.


Montgomery Swann has been formed to provide accountancy, taxation and business consultancy services to small and medium sized businesses. The company was formed by Steve Bradshaw who dissolved the partnership he founded in 1993 to enable Montgomery Swann to focus on providing business advisory services in addition to the more traditional compliance services.

The aim is to give a very high level of service to a small number of clients. This will ensure that clients get our full attention and we are able to answer their questions quickly and comprehensively. We were frustrated in practice by not having enough time to go that step further for our clients to make sure that the job is completed to their and our satisfaction, dealing with ALL the issues identified.

We believe that there is a knowledge gap in many small and medium sized enterprises. They cannot afford full-time financial expertise but would really benefit and value someone answering their day-to-day problems. We can fill this gap by becoming a virtual Financial Director.

We also believe that most owner-managed businesses are run by individuals who are extremely committed and enthusiastic but have not received any management training or coaching. This often results in the owner-manager working longer and longer hours whilst losing sight of their goals and objectives. Our team of business coaches can help address these issues to help grow the business and also achieve a better life for the owner.

Montgomery Swann is looking to grow over the next few years to form a network of qualified consultants within the business, offering accountancy, taxation and business advisory services.
