Meet the team
Clairwood Accounting was established in 1975 as Clairwood Secretarial offering book-keeping and payroll services and renamed Clairwood Accounting in 2001 to reflect the diverse range of business and accountancy services that by then were being offered. In common with many professional partnerships, Clairwood became an LLP in 2017.
Clairwood has always been proactive in either providing services in-house that clients need or assisting clients on-site.
