About Johnsons Chartered Accountants

More than just accountants and professional advisors!

Johnsons Chartered Accountants was founded in 1981. Since its early days we have evolved into a progressive and dynamic professional practice with a comprehensive understanding of today's business needs with the flexibility from experience to appreciate the different business models of success.

Stuart Thomson CA, is supported by a dedicated team of accountants, tax specialists, company secretaries, bookkeepers and support staff all based in West London with affiliate offices in the Isle of Man and Dubai. Stuart joined the practice in July 2015 as part of a growth strategy which led to the purchase of Simpsons Chartered Accountants (a well established practice dating back to the 1930s) in September 2015.

At the heart of Johnsons is a desire to see its clients succeed. To this end the approach is to go the extra mile to ensure not just compliance but a strategic approach to the challenges business face be it growth, profit margins, or turn around situations. Unusually for chartered accountants, Johnsons has a large proportion of staff with experience outside of the professions. This enable us to understand your needs better.

Whatever your needs Johnsons is able to respond and provide you with a high quality and high value service. From simple personal tax affairs to complex high net worth tax affairs, Johnsons is able to meet your needs. Johnsons offer specialist services to a wide range of clients. If you are a business looking for personalised support, an entrepreneur or a private individual we can help you with all your accounting issues. Whilst a broad based practice we also specialise in a number of sectors. These include: Property including 'buy to let'; IT and other Consultancy; Media and Entertainment; Construction and Not for Profit. Our clients range from individuals and small family run businesses to award winning companies and PLCs engaged in a wide range of sectors.

We assist clients in completing their accounting records, preparing monthly or quarterly financial management information, completing VAT returns, maintaining PAYE/NIC records and meeting the ever increasing regulatory requirements imposed on businesses. We use all the leading accounting software packages and offer training in their use. Our Tax Department is headed up by a senior tax practitioner who can assist in planning company and personal tax affairs so as to achieve maximum advantage of tax reliefs and it specialises in Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax.

We provide a comprehensive advisory service to business start ups by assisting with the preparation of business plans; suggesting and implementing recommended ownership structures; and advising on the best funding and tax arrangements such as EIS and SEIS.

We also offer transactional services where we help negotiate deals be they acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures or mergers. We move beyond the compliance matters into understanding the commercial drivers of a transaction such that we are able to put deals together which otherwise might fail.
