about icon


We’re Abacus Accountancy, and we’re here to disrupt your perception of a typical accountancy firm.


Our unique philosophy focuses on prevention rather than cure. Working closely with small to medium sized businesses throughout the UK, we offer an unusually efficient and wonderfully proactive approach that enables our clients to meet any and all of their accounting challenges head-on.


We feel it’s our duty to help our clients make the most of their money. We are passionate about helping business owners achieve their perfect lifestyle – whatever that may look like – by supporting them in a way that enables them to earn more, spend less, and have more time for the things they enjoy.


We’re not the kind of firm that drops in on your finances every now and then to keep things ticking over. With the support of two of the best cloud accounting tools in the business – Xero and ReceiptBank – we’re able to monitor your books in real-time and provide you with informed advice all year round.


Our mission is to provide an outstanding service, and we are proud to have won many prestigious awards that recognise our commitment to our clients’ experience of our company. In fact, we are the only UK accountants to boast a 99.6% customer satisfaction rating (and we’re even striving to improve this!).

Our director, Paul Pritchard, founded the company back in 2005. With a brilliantly unorthodox background and a relentlessly positive approach to business, he has played an instrumental role in driving the firm forward.


However, we wouldn’t be enjoying our phenomenal success without the knowledge and support of our team of Braintree-based accountants. We are dedicated to employing the very best talent available, which means that we produce work of a consistently high standard (and you can relax safe in the knowledge that your company’s financial affairs are in the safest possible hands).


We’ve won a whole host of accolades over the years. We were an Invest in Finance Winner at the investorReview Financial Awards in both 2016 and 2017; we received a Certificate of Achievement from the CV Magazine Financial Services Awards, again in 2016 and 2017, in recognition of our outstanding services; and we have been named amongst some of the World’s Most Inspiring Accountants in Steve Pipe’s book of the same name.


Our efforts to reduce wastage and run a more eco-friendly firm have been recognised several times, too. We were a finalist in the Green Essex Awards, and we have received two Highly Commended certificates from two local awards schemes as a result of our proactive approach towards environmental awareness.
