The Development of Deighan Perkins LLP - Chartered Accountants & Tax Advisers

Deighan & Company Chartered Accountants was formed in 1985 in Ilford, Essex by Alan Deighan, a Chartered Accountant from Barking in Essex. Alan was joined by Kevin Perkins in 2003 and Deighan Perkins Chartered Accountants was born.

The practice has grown steadily to become a major independent accounting & taxation practice with vast experience in advising businesses in a large selection of business sectors including the licenced trade and the construction industry.

The partners at Deighan Perkins have over 50 years of experience in the accountancy and taxation profession. The partners are committed to remaining independent as they strongly believe this allows them to service your accountancy and taxation needs in the most effective professional and personable manner.

As part of our continuing development we have gained authorisation to train the next generation of Chartered Accountants.

As well as accountancy, audit and tax skills, our partners also have individual specialisms which enable us to provide clients with a first class tailored service. With our wealth of experience we pride ourselves on delivering an unparalleled service to all clients, whatever their size or sector.

In addition to traditional auditing, accounting and tax services we also provide advice on how to improve and develop your business. Whether you need an integrated business strategy, access to corporate finance or specialist tax advice we are here to help you achieve your goals.
