About Us

When Bill Johnston met John Carmichael in 1936 they turned a possible partnership into, what is now, the largest independent firm of Chartered Accountants in Scotland.

From our beginnings in Moray to Scotland’s major cities, the business has grown to include offices across 11 locations throughout Scotland, including membership of the global accounting network, PKF International Ltd. We now have over 630 staff and Partners and are now one of the top 20 accountancy firms in the UK.

And with so many sharp minds on board, we’ve picked up some of the highest accolades in our industry, including Accountancy Firm of the Year at both the Scottish and British Accountancy Awards.

We’re big believers in the phrase ‘ask don’t tell, listen don’t talk’. Only by listening very carefully to our clients can we find out what really matters to them. And by building relationships we can build businesses, working in partnership to solve problems, challenge sharp minds and increase the possibilities every time we sit down together. 

Our specialists consult across a whole range of disciplines, from audit to tax, to business and personal finance. And because of our size and scale, there will always be an expert on hand to listen, learn and advise.


From Corporate Finance to Wealth Advisory, we've got the skills to make a difference.
