Welcome to Stephen Starr Accountants

We are a boutique firm devoted to protecting and advising our clients with a personal, proactive service, punctually and always with pragmatic, commercial acumen.

At Stephen Starr Accountants you will receive an unrivalled friendly service. We aim to maximise the benefits of our small size to customise everything to your needs yet use our wealth of experience to advise you better than any other firm out there - large or small. Our experience covers a wide range of economically diverse clients from solicitors and estate agencies to mechanics, plumbers and family companies of all trades.

With over 40 years of accountancy knowledge and practice, our firm also regularly mediates and arbitrates in contentious legal cases.

Our Specialities

  • Taking the stress out of your business
  • Protecting you from tax investigations.
  • Sound business tactics and tax planning.

We aim to provide a tailored service to suit individual client's needs. For some, this will only be a self assessment tax return, whilst others will require a range of services.

Our History

Stephen trained in Stoy Haywards' (now BDO) tax department and qualified in 1970. In 1973, Stephen Starr Accountants set up in Kensington and established a varied client base of individuals as well as small and medium sized businesses. In 1974, the business transferred to the community of Watford, Hertfordshire. This strengthened the firm's ideals of a friendly and personalised service by moving from the hustle and bustle of the city to friendly suburbia.
