Paulley Accountants - Bristol

Get started


You get all the usual stuff from an accountant but without the attitude. Accounts, VAT, Payroll, due diligence, bookkeeping, end of year accounts, tax consultancy etc.

Our approach means we get to know you and what you want from life. And that's reflected in how we manage your affairs.

Our Services

Our real speciality is making life easier for smaller businesses, from one man (or woman) bands to companies with up to £10 million turnover.

By banning all jargon, you'll understand what we're talking about so you can easily see how your finances will affect your business. We can also help you to plan your business more efficiently and profitably - bank managers love us.

About us

Accountants seem alien to most of us. You can't understand a word they are saying and they seem to be living in a world of their own.

As a client, you'll find our approach refreshingly different. Apart from being human and having a sense of humour, we actually talk in plain English. You'll even look forward to coming to our office, having a chat and meeting the office dog.

Our dress code? Jeans and t-shirt (we'll wear suits if you want us to). On top of that, we are good at what we do. Honest. We are based in Keynsham, and the clients for whom we provide accountancy are based in Bath and Bristol.


"Apart from the humor, the warm welcome, two dogs and copious amounts of real coffee, it's the word 'relationship' that has you set apart. To you we have not been 'just another client'. We have been made to feel special, in that you are genuinely interested in our business and us as individuals. "
Mike, Mike & Matt Directors, Innovecom

"I would like to thank you for being exactly what it says on the tin - an accountant, who is refreshingly different and jargon free. You explained everything to me with great clarity."
Cathy Penney, MIIR Reflexologist

"Nick and Sue Paulley were our first "port of call" when setting up in business. Their expertise in tax matters is second to none. Not only that but they do not speak in techno babble. They have been really helpful and have assisted greatly in our business. I would not hesitate to recommend PAULLEYS!"
Paul Dickinson

"Nick does what few other accountants do. He used his skills to ask questions and offer advice rather than just set out the accounts. He is friendly and informative. A really nice guy with a great sense of humour."
Rob Hook
Principle CoPilot, Business CoPilot

"I know that I can rely on Sue Paulley to do my accounting with calm efficiency exactly when she says she will. I trust her absolutely and would recommend her to anyone needing accountancy services."
Sarah Gornall, Coaching Climate

"We would like to recommend Paulley's to anyone who wants an accountant that cares and is willing to put as much effort into the small clients as they do their larger ones."
Dr Sian MacGowan and Steve Semmler
