Bird & Co – Certified Public Accountants
Bird & Co was formed by local Yaxley accountant Pete Bird and we now serve not only clients in the Yaxley and Peterborough area, but more widespread as well. The business continues to grow from personal recommendation and from increasing awareness of our practice within the area.
Our aim is to provide all the assistance needed by our clients. We will be responsible for all the tax and accountancy compliance work for our clients and ensuring that filing deadlines are met. This work includes the basic system design to ensure that our clients’ records are sufficient to pass HMRC scrutiny, through to the final accounts, plus the tax work and helping with other challenges faced by our clients.
