Dedicated to delivering a first class client service

Bentens. has been established in Saffron Walden for over 70 years and has grown considerably. The Practice is run by two partners Richard King and Sarah Warner and employ 14 other staff.

Most of our staff have been with the firm for five years or more, which results in continuity in dealing with client’s affairs.

We act for well over eighteen hundred clients of differing sizes - from individual tax returns and self employed subcontractors to the audit of more substantial limited companies. Although most of our clients are based within twenty miles of our office, we also deal with many clients who live elsewhere in the country or abroad.

We hold ‘Registered Auditor’ status and so are not restricted in the type of work we can carry out.

We give honest advice regarding the set up of a new business and do our best to explain what is sometimes an illogical tax system. We offer a free initial meeting for any potential new client.

We have many clients in the local community and service businesses, small and large, across many sectors including:

  • agriculture;
  • the professions;
  • the service sector;
  • the construction industry;
  • manufacturers; and
  • retailers.

As well as general accountancy, audit and tax skills, our partners also have individual skills which enables us to provide clients with a first class service. With our experience we pride ourselves on delivering an unparalleled service to all clients, what ever their size or sector.
