Advisor Choices

Choosing an advisor can be a difficult task for a growing, ambitious business, but is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Your team of advisors should be people who ‘get’ you and your venture, who understand and share your ambitions and aspirations and will help you achieve them. 

At Leathers, we take pride in supporting our clients, in getting to know them and their businesses and in helping make their plans become reality. For almost 30 years, we have acted for companies of all sizes and stages of growth; from start-ups to major employers, we have the capability to support them with their needs. 

We are renowned as being expert tax advisors and have worked around the world - as far afield as Hong Kong, Australia, Germany and the United States - as well as acting for many businesses in Yorkshire and across the UK. We also are unique in our marketplace through having in-house VAT and Stamp Duty experts, as well as an accounts and audit practice and a corporate finance business, Leathers Corporate Finance, so we can look after you, your business and your family. 

Whether we’re acting for a plc or a sole trader, our approach is always the same with regard to client service. We pride ourselves on offering an outstanding personal service to each and every client we work with and invest the time and effort to get to know much more than the financials - we build long-standing, trusting relationships with our clients, which frequently sees us being appointed by second and third generations of families and business owners. 

The vast majority of our work comes from recommendation or repeat business, which we believe speaks volumes about the quality of what we do, both in terms of the advice and client service we deliver. 

 But as well as being leading accountants, we are also proud members of the Harrogate business community. As a sponsor of the Harrogate Business Awards, it was fantastic to be part of such a celebration of the excellence we have here, and we are also hugely looking forward to the UCI Road World Championships, which is a huge coup for the town. At Leathers, we are passionate cyclists and are a sponsor of Dame Sarah Storey, Team GB’s most successful-ever female Paralympian whose own team, Storey Racing, will be competing here in September. Our managing partner, Michael Leather, has completed Le Loop - the exact route of the Tour de France, usually tackled only by professional cyclists - three times, and even I have done a stage or two. We’ve raised tens of thousands of pounds in the process, which has gone towards some brilliant causes. 

We’d be delighted to meet you and discuss your vision and ambitions for your business, and explain how we can help you get to where you want to be. Our door is always open, so do call in for a coffee and informal chat.
