Based in the rural landscape of Essex our offices are within 10 minutes of the A12, Baker Clarke has formed a reputation for client care and consideration. We are an independent firm of accountants who pride ourselves on the ability to provide our clients with the support and service expected of a local firm but on an international stage.
The directors of the Baker Clarke Partnership have been in business together since 1987 providing commercial advice and providing accountancy services throughout. This has helped form the diverse client base now cared for, internationally.
We pride ourselves on getting to know the client and their needs, both for businesses and individuals. Taking the time to speak and meet with clients and gather a clear understanding on what they would like to achieve, enables us to provide a far greater level of advice and service.
Within the company there is a wealth of experience and knowledge in almost all areas of business and this is supported by the combined 100+ years of ACCA qualification achieved by the team.
Our philosophy is to promote success and growth in all of our clients by utilising a niche blend of experience, expertise and care.
