About the employer

Kingston Burrowes is run by Bruce Burrowes, an accountant with over 20 years’ experience, helping businesses understand their finances and taxes and ultimately taking back control. Bruce has spent the last 9 years running his practice under the Taxassist banner where he now has 3 offices and numerous staff across Surbiton, Kingston and Wimbledon. The geographic range has enabled Bruce to network effectively in the local area to the point he was asked to become a Director of the Kingston Chamber of Commerce. To enable the practice to flourish further Bruce decided at the beginning of 2017 to leave the Taxassist network and branch out on his own. In April 2017 Kingston Burrowes was formed. As well as the usual skills you would expect from a proactive accountant Bruce and his team specialise in change management, contract negotiation, strategic planning and financial analysis. Kingston Burrowes really can bring a wealth of experience, skills and value to your business, enabling you to focus on the things that matter. The team at Kingston Burrowes are professional, have good attention to detail, are well informed and retain the big picture at all times. We also have a great sense of humour!
