Thorne Widgery – Accountants in Ludlow that Make the Town Rock

Our entire ethos as a practice is about looking ahead and it is this forward-thinking approach which has resulted in the addition of our team of accountants in Ludlow.

Serving businesses and individuals throughout Shropshire and beyond, our Ludlow accountants are ably led by CEO Dan Crowther.

We know Ludlow already rocks, but with our expertise we hope to make businesses in the town ‘champions of the world’ (or at least the UK).

At TW, we believe in using our experience, expertise and our unrivalled local knowledge to help our clients get to where they want to go.

Our clients have always been our greatest source of referrals and many Ludlow business owners that we work with have recommended us to others. You can check out what our clients say about us here.

Due to our ever-increasing client base and our close connection to the town through Dan – who has lived locally for most of his life and has close relationships with Ludlow’s business community – it made perfect sense to expand our own horizons by opening a new office in the heart of this bustling town.

If you are looking for a whole lotta love from a local accountant who sees things with fresh eyes and speaks your language, you may wish to check us out.

So what do clients want?

Every client is different, but we also find that many of their needs are similar.

  • Proactive advice – tell me what I should be doing to improve profits and reduce tax
  • A good personal relationship (understand me and my business)
  • Respond to my questions quickly and in a language that I understand
  • Ensure all my legal obligations are met
  • Have a team with a first rate technical and local knowledge
  • Someone who can help me make the most of IT and systems
  • Provide value for money

For a little more conversation, and a little less taxation, why not speak to our team.

Our office in Ludlow is located in The Business Quarter.

Give us a call, or better still, pop in for a cuppa and a chat – we’ve even been known to throw in a biscuit!

Ludlow office

“I have been with Thorne Widgery for about 10 years now. I had been with other accountants before but I was looking for a new firm, as I didn’t think my previous firm was giving me enough support.

“I was recommended them via word of mouth and after hearing about how professional they are and how good they were at keeping clients up to date I decided they were the practice for me.

“If there is something happening in the world of tax or accounting they are always quick to let me know, whether it is by email, letter or by picking up the phone and calling me.

“They have always been very approachable, very friendly and very professional. They also seem like a very young and innovative firm, which appeals to my approach.

“I honestly can’t speak highly enough of them and I am delighted to say that I have recommended them to more than 30 different businesses. They have saved me a small fortune and I am sure that they have done the same for the other companies who I recommended.”

“After graduating and travelling the world, my husband Gregg and I decided to settle in Shropshire and set about renovating a cottage.“We spent a long time researching the ideal wood burning central heating system for our home and eventually found what we were looking for in Italy. We had looked at local and national retailers but the options were limited, expensive and wouldn’t heat the whole of our house. It was at this point that we spotted a gap in the market. We set up a small showroom in the lounge of our own home – and so our business was born!

“Initially, we used another firm of accountants to sort out our VAT and year ends but as our business grew we felt that it was time for a change. We had heard good things about Thorne Widgery. Dan came to see us, he sat in our lounge/showroom with a cup of tea and was so supportive.

“Things really snowballed for our business and two and half years ago we moved the business to a warehouse in the centre of Ludlow. We took on staff, rather than sub-contractors for the first time, which in itself brought additional responsibilities and headaches such as PAYE and workplace pensions.

“Thorne Widgery have handled everything. We just pick up the phone and it gets sorted. They now provide us with a complete service, from bookkeeping, year ends and VAT returns, through to payroll and auto enrolment.

“With their help, we moved from using old-style accounting spreadsheets to Xero Cloud-based accounting. This has made a huge difference to the way we run the business. Now all our quotes, invoices and customer details are in one place and it’s really improved the way we work.

“We have a brilliant working relationship with Dan. He has a great sense of humour and he is also very patient with us, particularly when it comes to preparing year ends! He’s also very supportive and, if we’re having doubts, he gives us a pep talk and reminds us how far we have come as business owners in just a few short years, which really helps.

“I have already recommended Thorne Widgery to others – they are lovely and always at the end of the phone, ready to help.”
