Who We Are

Panton & Co is a firm of business oriented accountants based in the East Midlands. We work with a range of owner managed businesses, from property owners and small sole-traders to small and medium sized companies. We aren’t the sort of accountants that just sit in the corner crunching your numbers. We can help you to achieve your goals, as well as running your payroll and preparing your annual accounts and tax returns.

Our Ethos

Business People

Business people

We’re not just accountants, we’re experienced business people too. It’s in our DNA. We believe in working with you to help you grow your business, providing good advice and making sure you have the information you need. Our aim throughout is to help you build a better business.

Approachable Team


We keep it simple and we don’t wear suits. For many, the accounting and tax world can be hard to grasp. We’re practical, approachable and try to keep things jargon free, so you don’t get lost. And we listen to you. We talk in a clear, understandable way that helps, rather than confuses.

Supportive Team


We provide a professional service, with a personal touch. We want to give you the best possible service and we always strive to go that extra mile for our clients, putting their best interests at the heart of what we do. We’re also accessible, whether it’s in person, by phone or by email.

Working in partnership


We focus on your future, as well as the past. Like other accountants, we prepare your accounts and your tax returns. But we also act as a sounding board, challenge your business plans and help you develop new ones. We help you to consider your options and make informed decisions.



We work with modern, cloud based systems that save you time, invoicing on the go and giving you real-time access to your numbers. You can run your business from work, from home, or even on holiday from your phone, keeping up to date with all the information that you need.



We try to make every aspect of our relationship as easy for our clients as possible. We talk to you regularly and keep you honest on deadlines. We charge simple fixed fees for much of our work and we always agree the fee basis with you up front, following a free initial consultation.

Working With Us

Choosing the right accountant is an important decision. We have experience of working in real businesses, so we understand the challenges and pressures you face. We believe that keeping on top of your numbers should be as stress-free as possible, so that you’re always up to date and have the information that you need to run your business. We use cloud based systems that you share with your accountant to help you work smarter and to help us check your books and provide current advice.

As Chartered Management Accountants we are monitored for continuous professional development, anti-money laundering compliance, professional indemnity insurance and ethical conduct. We provide a free initial consultation to all prospective new clients, so that we can understand your requirements and advise you how we can best help you. It is straight forward and doesn’t cost you anything. If you already have an accountant we will also help you to make the change quickly and easily.

We want to make sure there are no surprises, so we always agree the fee basis with you in advance. We charge a fixed fee for regular compliance work, based on having up to date records available. If you need help with your record keeping, we can also provide a professional bookkeeping service at a competitive rate per hour. For businesses that need support with regular management accounts, financial reports or analysis, board meetings and project work, we can provide this service as well and will discuss the fee basis with you once your requirements have been agreed.
