David Walton ran two distribution companies during the 1980’s and 90’s and says; “At the time, there was nowhere affordable to go for help with all of the admin and tax queries that come with running a business. As a result, I pretty much made every mistake possible, which was an expensive learning curve for me”. With an obvious gap in the market, there was a need for qualified people to provide ‘hands-on’ practical advice. With this in mind, David then went on to qualify as a practising accountant and Walton Accountancy started trading, initially from an office at home.
The USP of the business is providing timely advice and support throughout the development of a business at no additional cost.
The growth of the business has been entirely from “word of mouth” and personal recommendations from existing clients. In 2016 Benjamin Walton qualified as an accountant, at which time they moved to a purpose designed office located in Horndean. The business now has 2 licensed accountants, part-time staff, and are looking to take on a trainee accountant in 2017. The business is going from strength to strength, still with the vast majority of growth being recommendations from existing clients.

I am a newly qualified accountant with five years of practical experience. I am a friendly, hardworking and committed individual who always strives to provide a professional but personable working relationship with clients.
I started this business after qualifying as an accountant fifteen years ago because I could see that people needed more help than was already available. This is the side of accounting that I really enjoy.
I deal with most of the admin. and have recently taken responsibility for providing xero support, our online accounting partner. "I really enjoy the hustle and bustle of working in such a busy office". I am a very organised person and enjoy liaising with clients on a regular basis.
I am new to the business, having recently joined as a trainee accountant. I am enthusiastic and excited about the journey on which I am embarking.
