More about us

A more personal and approachable service


Brown Royd is a small family run accountancy practice established by Andrew Lindley, a qualified financial accountant and tax adviser with over 20 years experience in accountancy, business and industry.

Andrew began his working life in finance and accounts before branching out to establish his own manufacturing and processing company. However, after successfully building up to a turnover of over £1 million, Andrew decided to sell the company and return to his more preferred routes in accounts and taxation.

Therefore, besides possessing a wealth of accountancy and taxation knowledge, Andrew also has real life business experience gained within a commercial setting; experience that other accountants often lack, but which is essential when attempting to relate to the needs of smaller business owners and new start-ups.

More than just another cost

Through his own experiences, Andrew recognised that small business owners, contractors and freelance professionals often require a much more personal and connected accountancy service that offers more than simply preparing accounts and tax returns each year. A service that takes the time to get to know more about you and your business.

In addition to providing an experienced and cost effective service, we believe that as your accountant, we should work harder on your behalf to help minimise your costs, identify tax saving opportunities and help grow your business. After all, a good accountancy service should offer more than just another cost.

As part of a more approachable working style, we also actively encourage you to keep in touch on a more regular basis whenever you need to, maybe to help with accountancy queries or to discuss specific tax advice that might benefit you, your business and your family.
