Who we are

AH&Co was founded more than 30 years ago and we have been successfully serving our clients ever since... but we are sure you don't want a history lesson so here is our philosphy today:

  • Great client service
  • Have fun at work

Simple really, isn't it?

There are many reasons to choose us as your accountants but here are our top 5:

  • Support - we are with you every step of the way. Call us, chat to us, tell us what you had for breakfast. We are here to support you and your business, always. 
  • Attention to detail - any question you ask us, you can be assured that our answer is thorough and backed with years of of experience. 
  • No voicemail - we hate it when we call someone and have to spend twenty minutes navigating a complex telephone system just to realise you have ended back up at the first menu. We would never expect you to do the same. Every time you call you speak to a real person in our Edinburgh office (apart from one afternoon a year, just before Christmas, when we are enjoying our Christmas Lunch!).
  •  We're friendly and more than happy to deliver detailed technical advice alongside a smile, good cup of coffee and a chocolate chip cookie.
  • Joke / Fact of the day!
