About us

Waltons Clark Whitehill is a firm of chartered accountants and business advisers.  We’re based on The Marina in Hartlepool and our team consists of four directors and over thirty team members.  We’ve been around a long time, established in 1885, under the name of W T Walton, and we’ve grown to become one of the major accounting firms in the area. 

Our main aim is to be your trusted advisor in relation to all matters financial. We do this by building a relationship, getting to know you, understanding your individual needs and aims, and then working with you to achieve those aims and build a truly successful business.  As part of this we will speak with you in a way that you understand, whilst supporting you with a comprehensive package of advice and assistance that saves you time and money, and importantly allows you to get on with the job of running your business. We know from listening to our clients that high on most agendas is maximising income and wealth and minimising tax. 

We work with the full range of clients from private individuals requiring assistance with a simple tax return, to large company audits.  We cater for all types of businesses including soletraders, partnerships, limited companies, LLPs and the full range of industries that you would expect of a firm this size including the likes of construction, health, hospitality, farming, professional partnerships (specialising in solicitors) etc, to social enterprise sectors including schools, academies, charities and pension schemes. 

Although we have been around over 130 years, we always strive to use the latest technology to deliver our services to you.  At the moment we are focusing on the benefits of cloud accounting and the upcoming changes announced as part of Making Tax Digital (MTD).  Cloud accounting offers opportunities to make your life easier, whilst providing timely management information, which will assist you in making better decisions.  Exciting times ahead for all of us! 

We'll never give you any surprises by talking ith you about costs upfront, and our fixed fees can be paid in easy to budget for instalments. 

To put it in a nutshell ... we're business advisers ... building relationships ... to give you the best advice.
