ABOUT US

Our client base is diverse. From sole traders, partnerships and multi-million pound companies to Clubs, Charities and Residential Landlords. Their needs are as varied as their businesses, such as help with compliance in tax and record keeping, filing returns and accounts, audits, taxes, payroll and VAT advice, forecasting, funding and above all, good sound business advice.

We understand that entrepreneurs value good advisers who help and mentor them to structure and grow their businesses into “businesses which work…so they don’t have to”. They strive for a good work/life balance and we work with them to create their dreams.

Our accountancy practice of Torevell Dent was formed in April 1986. We know about business – we’ve run and sold several, successfully, for over 35 years. We quickly became established and acknowledged as providers of high quality financial and business advice by our clients, banks, HMRC and other local professionals as we opened branches in Skipton, Harrogate, Bradford and Huddersfield.

Having successfully sold our North Yorkshire branches and our Financial Services company some years ago, we have retained a presence in Halifax, Bradford and Huddersfield where we are well placed to provide a complete range of services to clients throughout West Yorkshire and via technology, well beyond.

Being regulated by the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants and an Approved Employer and Training Practice, clients can trust the quality of our work and expertise.

Our success is dependent on the success of our clients and so you can be assured to receive a first-class personalised service from our highly experienced team.

TESTIMONIALS

We value our clients’ opinions, read what they have to say below.

“I have been self-employed for over 23 years and in that time Torevell Dent have looked after my accounts. Other firms have tried to tempt me away, but the service I have received from Torevell Dent has in my opinion been outstanding. The personal touch has never gone away and they are never too busy to talk to me and help me with any issues I have had.”

Self-employed driving instructor

“Just a short note to say thank you for all at Torevell Dent for the help and advice given to us during the difficult past twelve months. We thought you were great when you saved us £60,000 in tax but you have shown us that you are well worth your fees during the hard times as well. We will be recommending you to other businesses whenever we get the opportunity.”

Director

“If you are nervous about employing a firm of Accountants for the first time, this is the place to come.

Looking after somebody else’s finances it is vitally important that you receive friendly, accurate and up-to-date advice.

I have found all this to be the case at Torevell Dent.”

Church Treasurer
