Our Services

We understand that not everyone is comfortable around numbers and financial language, but to us, it’s where we feel at home. So, if your finances make you feel nervous, we’ll talk to you and explain things to you in ways you can understand. So you can get to grips with your financial situation, feel at ease and in control.

We provide a wide range of support, including:

Business management, financial planning, and accounting services

“Dockwray are so much more than accountants. I can ring Gill and Nick with the most random questions – from expanding into new office space or investing in a mini-MBA to when’s the best time to upgrade my tech. They understand, even more than I do myself, where I want to be next year, in five years – and in ten years’ time.”

Laying the foundations of your success

The more of our services you use, the better value it is for your business. That’s because when we do your bookkeeping, we build an understanding of your business. It also means you only ever need to have one folder labelled, “Accounts.”

Gill Brereton

Director | Dockwray Ltd.

When we work with you, we’ll put business processes and systems in place that work – and aren’t just box-ticking exercises. And we’ll help with your business forecasting too. Bringing together your budgeting and quarterly reporting for greater accuracy, peace of mind and clarity when your year-end comes around again.

Our clients include creative agencies and marketing consultants, fast-moving tech companies and independent restaurants – as well as businesses where we provide financial directorship.

What We do

Accounting Services

From start-ups and sole traders to limited companies and financial directorships, we’re here to put your accounts in order and your mind at ease. And we talk like real people– not in accountant speak. So, you’ll never feel out of your depth.
We’ll help you to stay on top of your monthly bookkeeping and take the strain out of planning for your tax return – issuing an estimate for you in plenty of time to make sure you’ve got what you need when January rolls around again.

Business Management

More than accountants, we make it easy to get on top of your financial to-do-list. We’ll listen to where you are and where you want to be – then introduce the systems, processes, budgets, and clear reporting you need for stress-free financial management, forecasting, and strategic planning. From managing your payroll and invoicing to financial directorship, we’ll help secure your business growth.

Financial planning

We specialise in financial business planning and financial strategies for growth, whether you want to expand into new premises, new markets, or take on new staff members. Where do you want to be in the future? Are there new initiatives you want to explore? What does financial success look like for you? We’ll help to get you there.

Tax Returns

Take the strain out of planning for your tax return. We’ll issue an estimate for you in plenty of time to make sure you’ve got what you need when January rolls around again.


Whether you keep digital records of your expenses or keep a pile of random receipts on your desk, we’ll help you to stay on top of your monthly bookkeeping.

“What’s it like to work with Gill? In 40 years in businesss, she is the best that I have worked with. Would I recommend Dockwray Accountants to other people who need an accountant or a Financial Director? Yes, as long as they weren’t competitors.”
