What we do
With a sprawling client base across the Midlands, Staffordshire and Cheshire, Thompson Wright is among the leading firms of Chartered Accountants in the Midlands and the North West of England.
Our aim is simple: make business better.
Progression was my main motivation for moving to TW, which I have been fully supported in since joining. I have settled in very quickly into a great team who are willing to support each other. I now have a lot more control over my own career progression now and I am really enjoying my time here.
Coming fresh from university with limited practice experience I was a little apprehensive about whether I was ready for my future. I can honestly say that on my first day those feelings disappeared, Thompson Wright made me feel very welcome and my team have been very supportive, creating amazing opportunities for me to learn and develop. I feel at home at Thompson Wright, and I generally come to work every morning with a smile on my face and a spring in my step.
In life we tend to regret the choices we didn’t make and the decision to move to Thompson Wright is certainly not one of them. The thought of joining a different accounting practice was daunting at first, however everyone has been so welcoming and supportive these thoughts soon went away, and I have quickly settled into my role within the team. Having the support and great working environment really does make a difference and I now enjoy coming to work.
I have been working at Thompson Wright now for six weeks and I’m really happy to have made the move from another accounting practice. I expected changing practices to be stressful in getting used to my new surroundings but everybody has been friendly and supportive in helping me to settle in so quick.
Thanks for being a great partner to Falco over the years, it’s not always easy to find companies that fit your culture but Thompson Wright have always understood our business which has made my life much easier, all the best counting those beans!
I trust the TWCA team in handling all my company or individual accounts. Their efficiency in providing quick responses, queries and support is second to none. Once even replying to emergency emails, at 9:01 AM in the morning!
As a small business, it is imperative to have the support of a strong accounting team so that I can be mentally and physically liberated to grow my business.
I’m loving my new job! My colleagues are all lovely and helped me to overcome my nerves during the first week. I’ve settled in quickly and feel so comfortable already. Best decision I have made and so glad I took the leap to move on.
Having moved to Thompson Wright from a far smaller practice, I feel that my career has really taken off. This is thanks to Thompson Wright’s commitment to helping each individual achieve their personal goals in terms of career progression and training requirements. The office is a nice environment to work in, as everyone is friendly and approachable and the job itself is both interesting and challenging due to the wide range of clients that we deal with.
The thought of joining a bigger accountancy practice was both exciting and daunting, however, after my first 6 months at Thompson Wright, I can safely say I have no regrets. Even with the safety measures in place to protect us from the pandemic, I felt welcomed and part of the team in no time. Moving to Thompson Wright has helped me progress and develop a lot quicker than before thanks to the wealth of knowledge and support available as well as the large variety of different client types. Joining the team is an easy decision if a nice, professional working environment with plenty of opportunities is what you are looking for.
I want to thank you, and your team for the incredible support I had over the last 13 months.
No question or concern was ever too small for your team to help me with.
At a very confusing and overwhelming time, I always felt that someone would be able to advise and talk me through the next steps.
I can’t tell you how much of a comfort it was knowing that you guys were at the end of the phone to help, and take the time to explain things.
Thank you for all your emails in reference to the current situation they have been a great help.
Can I just say, how much I appreciate the continued information you are mailing out to us, an excellent service.
Lawrence, and now his son Richard Thompson have been looking after our business and personal accounts since 1986. We could not be in better hands. Our options and investment opportunities are explained clearly and decisions implemented efficiently. We always have a long-term personal contact in case of queries and appreciate the friendly approach. Gwen on the switchboard is a gem – it is always a delight to phone up and hear her cheery voice.
I’ve conducted business with Richard Thompson for 20 years or so supplying professional staff to his firm. When the time came and I set up my own business it made sense to place the care of my financial affairs with Thompson Wright. It was one of my better decisions and although I’m only a small business I have been looked after very well in the last five years.
My Client Manager, Jenni Wilson, and her team are attentive, friendly and happy to take ownership of any issues that I might raise with them. Although I have an accountancy background and could handle a lot of accounting tasks myself, I find it makes good commercial sense to concentrate my time and efforts on running my business.
I recommend the firm completely. Are they the cheapest for a small business like mine? No, but you get a lot more for those extra professional fees. You get what you pay for and in my experience that’s top quality client service and peace of mind.
Having spent several years dealing with a string of very poor accountants who did not have my own or my company’s interest at heart, it was a refreshing change to come across Thompson Wright about 10 years ago. They have provided excellent services and I would highly recommend them. They are always pro-active and genuinely care about their clients. Here’s to many years to come 🙂
I recently engaged Thompson Wright to take over my book keeping. After having a meeting with Richard, Rachel and Chris I have decided to take all my accounting and financial advice over to them. It’s so refreshing to have financial advice from your accountant. I feel my finances are moving in the correct direction and highly recommend this firm. Thanks everyone.
I have been a client of Thompson Wright for several years now. My business is very small in comparison to other Clients that they look after, however, you wouldn’t know it. The level of customer service that I receive from them makes me feel like my company is all they care about. I have never received this level of service elsewhere. Fantastic ,professional but friendly service that keeps me on the straight and narrow. I trust TW with anything financial including financial advice from a regulated professional advisor. They are also always ahead of the curve with their IT offerings, that make business life easier. I don’t have time to do most of the mundane tasks that are essential when running your own business, they take away the headache. The service is platinum standard. If you want a trustworthy confidential honest and professional company I wouldn’t look anywhere else.
I was recommended to use Thompson Wright by my brother-in-law who has used them for years. I have found them to be very customer focussed, very responsive in communications even when they can’t deal with my E mail queries immediately. I have also found them able to answer all the questions I have raised when discussing my accounts, and they give me total confidence. I am thus very pleased and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
I have been using Thompson Wright now for the past two years both for my Ltd Company and now also for my self employed work and I have to say that they are truly amazing and so helpful not to mention very professional, I cannot recommend enough Sarah Bowen & Ian Wheat you have been a life saver.
TW have been my accountants since 2001. They have supported me with book-keeping, accounts preparation and both personal and corporation tax advice and compliance work throughout. They have also been instrumental in carrying out a financial restructuring of the business twice, plus they dealt very effectively with a very unpleasant (and unfair) HMRC investigation. I have found their support so complete and comforting that I never thought of switching accountants when I moved to East Yorkshire a number of years ago.
We moved our business and personal accounting & Fiancial advisors to TWCA 4 years ago. In this time, Jess, Rachel and their team have helped enormously on a day to day basis with several changes within our business most recently with the purchase of the building we trade from. They were invaluable in this process and along with Sarah and Stuart (Financial Advice partner) their clear, astute, level headed advice and working relationship with our Solicitors kept the whole process from collapsing several times and saved us a lot of money in the long run.
I trust what they tell me and always feel that they have time for me no matter how trivial the question. Thank you.
After being with our advisor for many years, we made the move to Thompson Wright in Leek. In all honesty we should have made the jump sooner. In our first year alone we received advice on better, more efficient ways of record keeping; expenses that we hadn’t claimed previously; pre year end tax planning and our tax liabilities were clearly explained to us fully rather than simply an ‘amount to pay’ on the page. Rachel and the team are always on the end of the phone when we need them. All in all, we are very happy with the service to date and would recommend TW to anyone.
Richard and Sarah have both been wonderful to work with, we are very pleased with the service and would refer.
Thompson Wright offer a first class service
Bryan Enterprises Ltd T/A Security Services began life with a good deal of enthusiasm, a sympathetic Bank Manager and what has proven to be probably one of the best local accountants. That was in 1983 and years later we still maintain a personal service with the same person we met on our very first meeting, David Wright (only in those days he had more hair!). The friendly, but professional advice and services provided by David and his more than capable team has seen our company expand to the success that it is today.
It goes without saying that I would have no hesitation in recommending the services provided by Thompson Wright.
Before joining Thompson Wright Chartered Accountants six years ago, X-traweld Services Limited was with an individual accountant who was simply producing a set of accounts for us each year. We decided to move accountants upon meeting Richard Thompson and realising that Thompson Wright could offer us a whole range of services we were previously not receiving, including payroll and Independent Financial Advice.
Richard is brilliant because he not only helped us on the business side he also advised us a lot on the personal finance side, putting things in place to ensure we were getting the right tax benefits and making a secure grounding for the future.
The Client Services Bureau provided the professional help required for setting-up the Sage software and training on how to use it effectively. We find the ongoing support that we are provided with is a great help and it gives us the confidence to use Sage to it’s full potential as we are only a telephone call away should we have any problems or need any advice.
Our business was established in 1913 and over the last 18 years we have placed our trust in Thompson Wright as our accountants.
A consistent professional service with a personal touch is very hard to find in any accountancy firm, but Keith Evans has managed to support us through a number of business and personal challenges with his sympathetic expert advice.
We found his vast knowledge and experience in HMRC matters invaluable.
Our continued partnership with Thompson Wright means we have no hesitation in recommending them to any of our business friends and associates.
From the first moment I met Richard at TW I knew they were different. They were excited about our business and how they could help maximise its potential. This has been the case – the pro-active nature and fast response to calls and emails has been invaluable. From simple ‘hand holding’ through payroll for the first time to actively planning for the years ahead. Given that we do research and development it was an eye opener to talk to them and discuss options, whereas every other accountant just didn’t know about what benefits or breaks are out there to help SMEs
