More than an accountancy firm

A trained accountant with a history of entrepreneurship and more than 25 years of corporate experience, Richard Jackson founded RPJ Accountancy in 2007. As well as offering tax, compliance, payroll and book keeping services to small and medium-sized limited companies and their directors, RPJ prides itself on providing financial advice that helps businesses thrive.

Growing businesses deserve access to top-quality advice as well as first-class accounting. Just because your business doesn’t yet have sufficient scale to require its own financial director, it doesn’t mean you can’t access the expertise you need.

A small business owner himself, Richard understands the challenges directors face in managing their financial affairs while focusing on the core business and its clients. As well as setting up his own small businesses, he has many years of corporate accounting and finance experience in medical and aerospace manufacturing – including crisis management during the financial downturn.

RPJ is here to take away the headache of dealing with tax, payroll, book keeping and auto enrolment, leaving you free to focus on your speciality. Unlike in many larger firms, RPJ clients have direct access to Richard when questions come up, enabling you to access his expertise when you need it most.

RPJ will take care of your accounting, tax and compliance needs as well as being on hand to advise at every step of your business journey.

As a client you’ll also have access to our extended network of financial, legal, HR and digital marketing specialists. Based in Hertfordshire, we are a local resource for many of our clients as well as serving businesses as far afield as France, the United States and New Zealand.
