The Steven Burton & Co team of accountancy experts in Essex

Meet the team

We are the friendly face of accounting. Our founding values are centered around ease-of-use and accessibility in accounting, so that we can help businesses grow. Simplicity was what was missing from Accountancy, a web of jargon, confusion and frustration.

We do things differently here. Transparency is vital for us, that’s why we want you to meet us. Our positive, problem solving approach means each member of our team is valued and involved in the process of accounting.
