Who are we?


Our origins

Pearson May originated in 1841 – a period of great change and innovation, just like today. It was the year Isambard Kingdom Brunel opened his Great Western Railway. More than 180 years later the firm still stands as a proud achievement, with a team of professional accountants and accomplished business advisers who understand what it takes to look after a client.

At Pearson May we are dedicated to adding value to our business relationships so that our clients receive maximum benefit from our advice and services. We believe that through years of passion and a constant desire to improve and succeed, we can confidently advise businesses and individuals with strategic ingenuity to reach their goals and protect their wealth.

When choosing a firm of Chartered Accountants you will be looking for a team who can add value to your finances, not just for today, but also into the future – whatever lies in store.


Our approach to business

At Pearson May our aim is to help our clients realise their personal and business goals. We believe in a planned and proactive approach in order to maximise income and minimise tax, which in turn will help you to create and retain more wealth.

Above all else, the client is always number one. With offices in Bath, Chippenham and Trowbridge we are ideally positioned to provide you with the personal attention you demand.

We appreciate that our clients require prompt attention and we expect to deliver effectively and on time. We encourage our clients to agree deadlines. This helps us to both plan our work and keep costs down.

We are a leading practice with a long-standing professional reputation and you can be confident that we will always put your interests first. As an independent firm of Chartered Accountants we provide an unbiased opinion in respect of all aspects of your affairs.
