We are delighted to announce that we’ve joined forces with leading Billericay accountants, First Call Accounting, to provide a complete range of accounting and financial planning services to businesses and individuals throughout Essex.


What is happening?

Effective 21 October 2019, this partnership will broaden the services and expertise available to new and existing clients of TBL Accountants and First Call Accounting.

We are proud to be incorporating First Call Accounting, an accountancy firm that has built up an impressive reputation in Billericay and surrounding towns for the quality of their work and professionalism of their team.

Their business goal has always been to take the stress of financial matters away from their clients, which is a view that we share. With our similar outlooks, we believe that this partnership is an exciting step for both firms, our teams and our clients.

"We are excited to introduce our specialist accounting services to a new market, helping even more clients achieve their business goals."
- Chris Humpage, Partner


How will this impact our clients?

From 21 October 2019, we will be operating this partnership under the TBL Accountants name. The Southend office is located at 457 Southchurch Road, Southend-on-Sea, SS1 2PH, and the Billericay office is located at Audit House, 151 High Street, Billericay, CM12 9AB. Our website is www.tblaccountants.co.uk.

To prepare you for these changes, we will be contacting all First Call Accounting clients to introduce ourselves and answer any questions to ensure a smooth transition. Rest assured, whether you are a new or existing client, we will continue to provide our first-class accounting services from our fully certified teams, no matter which office you contact.

"TBL Accountants has always been committed to providing the best service to our clients, so we're thrilled to add the knowledge, experience and services of the First Call Accounting team to ours."
- Paul Stafford, Partner


Business as usual

Incorporating First Call Accounting’s expertise means that, together, we will be able to advise a wider range of businesses and individuals across Essex. Our teams will work hard to ensure that First Call Accounting clients continue to experience the high level of service they expect.
