Equestrian specialist accountants

We are the leading Equestrian specialist accountancy firm in Scotland, based in Edinburgh but supporting clients across the country on site as well as form our offices.

Specialist equestrian accountants can make a significant difference to the cashflow management, accounting and tax returns for equestrian businesses as well as individuals or families that keep horses. Following decades of a successful track record in the rural and agricultural sector, we therefore have a real  equestrian specialism with great credentials, and as a result have become Scotland’s ‘go to’ equestrian accountants.

  • Competition riders
  • Studs
  • Individuals
  • Families with horses
