New Business

If you have recently set up in business or are thinking about taking the first steps to become self-employed, the right advice is essential. We can help with book keeping, tax planning and advice for your start-up to ensure your new venture gets off to the best possible start.

Our client base is wide varied and includes...

Small Business

We specialise in preparing accounts and tax returns for small businesses.

Our accounts preparation service not only gives HMRC the information they legally require, but just as importantly, gives the client a summary of their business's income and expenditure, which can be used to make the business more profitable.


Richard Bown started out as an employee of Bown & Gray in 1995, preparing accounts and tax returns for subcontractors. He then moved on to work exclusively for his father's business, Bown & Co, to deal with small business accounts, tax returns, payroll and VAT returns. At the start of 2007 he set up his own business, Richard Bown & Co in Whitley Bay.

In addition to accounts and tax return preparation, we also provide book keeping, payroll services, VAT return preparation and limited company formations.

Our fees start at £95 for tax return completion, but quoting for accounts is more complex and we will need to learn about your business. We suggest getting in touch to arrange a visit to our offices in Whitley Bay.
