Our Story

Crowthers Chartered Accountants (then named Crowther & Co) was founded in 1989 by Jonathan Crowther who acquired the Pershore Office from a former employee and decided to start out on his own as a sole practitioner.

The firm expanded to a second location in Ledbury in 2001 following its merger with Beard & Company.

in 2007 the firm incorporated as Crowthers Accountants Limited and became known as Crowthers Chartered Accountants.

The firm expanded again in 2017 when a third office in Cheltenham was opened as a specialist Corporate Tax office.

in 2019 the firm opened its fourth location, a new Rural office at Twyning near Tewkesbury, which has become a central base for the company’s Farming Team.

We now have a team of six directors and still have clients from the early days. As we are a family business, we love to work with other family businesses as we share their goals and challenges.
