About Us

We are a small but fast growing company that started in 2012.

Chadwick Accounts was founded by Rachael Chadwick in 2012 with the purpose of providing cost-effective solutions to business owners and self-employed professionals.  The firm has gone from strength to strength by proving our reliability, honesty and value to local businesses.  As the business continued to grow the decision was made in 2021 to become a limited company and we now trade as Chadwick Accountants & Bookkeepers Ltd.  

The business is AAT Licensed and you can find us under the registration number: 10272634.  www.aat.org.uk/licensed-members/directory 

We are based in Bidford-on-Avon and provide a wide scope of services to businesses and individuals throughout the UK.  Our location has convenient access to the M5 & M40, enabling us to provide in-person support to companies throughout Warwickshire & the West Midlands.  We have invested in robust IT systems, allowing us to communicate effectively wherever our clients go.   The pandemic has increased the use of Zoom & Teams to communicate which has allowed us to expand our service offering to the whole of the UK.  

Our clients stay with us because they are impressed with our services.  We offer fantastic value for money as we don't have a lot of the big overhead costs that larger companies are burdened with.  This means we can offer you the best possible price.

We are a down to earth accountancy firm that understands the risks people take when starting their own businesses, we will support you through difficult decisions and rejoice in your success.

Our reputation is growing along with our client's businesses...
