Accountants in Somerset

A little about us...

We are an independent firm of Chartered Certified Accountants in Taunton and Bridgwater.  We offer a personal, friendly service, bespoke to each and every one of our clients’ individual needs. Whether you just want someone to crunch the numbers or a true partner to help develop your business to its full potential, we can offer a cost-effective solution for you.

We specialise in servicing owner-managed small and medium-sized businesses in and around the Taunton and Bridgwater area, helping them manage the burden of accountancy and tax compliance, leaving them with time to focus on what they do best.

In recent years, accountancy services have moved towards being delivered on an annual basis and tending to focus on a business’ statutory requirements, like submitting accounts or tax returns.  At Walpole Dunn, we truly believe that this is a gross disservice to clients and we are instead dedicated to becoming their true business partner, offering them proactive business advice that spans more than just accountancy and tax.
