ABOUT US

J. Richard Hildebrand & Co. Chartered Certified Accountants was founded many years ago by Mr Jonathan Richard Hildebrand (universally known as Rick). The firm has been established since 1981.

 

We have obtained a good reputation by word of mouth in many industry sectors, most especially the creative industries such as Photography, Advertising, and Film Production.

 

We have in particular taken a firm attitude with the authorities and used our best efforts to get the optimum result for our clients within the bounds of the law.  Some of our longest lasting clients remain with us because we resolved such issues as H M Revenue and Customs enquiries and negotiated settlement of tax arrears over time.

 

We do not advise on artificial tax avoidance schemes.
