Our Organisation

Stewart Associates Shrewsbury Ltd is an accountancy practice which seeks to help clients to help themselves. The more work the Client is willing and able to undertake themselves the more time we have to spend on the important things, advising on tax and similar matters. And of course there is no need for a Client to pay for work which they can do or can be trained to do themselves. Our attitude is to work as efficiently and effectively as possible with clients.

Independent Auditors LLP provides Audit services directly to clients requiring Statutory Audit and also to firms of accountants throughout the UK who choose to outsource the Audit function either wholly or in part.

Contractor Taxation Services Ltd provides support and advice to one person companies situated nationwide trading as consultants or contractors. We discuss VAT, tax efficient extraction of profit by way of salary, dividend or alternative means, benefits-in-kind and attend to all compliance matters for the company and the individual director/shareholder.

The firm was founded by Ian Stewart FCA CTA in 1981 initially providing tax advice to accountants and lawyers and while now a general accountancy practice Ian remains fully committed as a tax practitioner. As a qualified and practising member of the Institute of Taxation Ian advises on all areas of commercial taxation including profit extraction, share schemes, EIS, EMI, purchase of own shares, R&D credits, VAT planning in addition to more routine Corporation and Income Tax matters.

Ian Cooke (Director) joined in 1991 and heads up the accounting function which includes advice on accounting systems including budgets and management accounts production and often provides detailed spreadsheet templates to aid management information available to Clients.

Jon Dale BA (Hons) ACA joined in 2004 from a national firm of accountants to head up the Audit function and is a partner in our sister firm Independent Auditors LLP. He is also responsible for the management of Contractor Taxation Services Ltd.
