Kreston Reeves – our accounting partner

Kreston Reeves are a forward-thinking firm of Chartered Accountants in Sussex with experience in community and charity projects.

Kreston Reeves, and their predecessor firm Spofforths which merged in 2016, provided a full range of services to British Airways i360 during its development and construction phase. From bookkeeping, payroll and management reporting through to End of Year accounts and tax, they provided daily advice to the British Airways i360 team. Research & development tax credits were claimed on the innovative technology and methods used on British Airways i360, together with identification of complex capital allowances claims. After the opening in summer 2016, the accounting and associated controls were handed on to the in-house team, with training given and advice remaining in place, Kreston Reeves helping with the need for greater capacity at busy periods.

Our Brighton office provides advisory and governance advice to civil society entities established as charities, not-for-profits and community based organisations, and has experience in working with central and local government to provide reporting and assurance to funders and stakeholders. Accounting for public funding and the public interest requires an established firm of reputation. Naturally, our Brighton office also enjoys developing friendly, collaborative and long-term relationships with our clients; our aim is straight forward talking and cutting through the technical language of accountancy and tax so that clients feel in control.

The firm holds workshops and seminars at British Airways i360, in concert with ICAEW South East, to promote thought leadership and conversations with businesses and charities; the venue is ideal for getting away from the office to think and talk openly in an inspiring and confidential environment.

At Kreston Reeves we have a choice of online accounting options, so you can be assured that you have the right software, whether you are a start-up business, an SME, or larger business. You can be assured that our team will be on hand to help with your accounting needs, and provide systems design, advice and guidance on accounting, VAT, business tax, and payroll services. With the Digital Advisory Business Solutions from Kreston Reeves Brighton, you can get support from an experienced team of young and energetic accountants.
