About the Business
Aysgarth Chartered Accountants is different.

Many business people compare going to see their accountant with a visit to the dentist. We are not like that, we are approachable and friendly.

We try not to use technical jargon but speak to our clients in a language they understand. We do not talk down to our clients.

We are thinking accountants who embrace modern technology whether it is social media or cloud accounting. As an accountancy firm, we are experts of Xero, FreeAgent and KashFlow cloud accounting.

We like our clients to work closely with us. For some clients that means we are effectively their financial director, for others, we have less day to day involvement but they know that we are always there for them. We keep in touch with our clients and regularly discuss their business and make suggestions. We know it is the right approach as clients love us.

We are based in the city of Leeds and are a short walk from the train station but we look after clients all over Yorkshire and the rest of England and Wales.

Simon Young - Managing Partner

Simon is our Managing Partner. He has a variety of accounting experiences which he brings to Aysgarth Chartered Accountants.

Simon trained with an independent firm of Chartered Accountants in Leeds. Immediately on qualifying as a chartered accountant Simon was promoted and started to manage a portfolio of clients. He got on so well with his clients that one of them offered him a role in their company.

Over the next six years Simon saw the business grow from sales of £3 million to £13 million. During that time Simon was promoted to Financial Director. The business imported and distributed consumer goods and traded in foreign currencies.

Simon then joined an internet retailer as Financial Director. In both companies Simon was involved in the project management of moving to new accounting packages.

Looking for a new challenge Simon returned to the accounting profession, using his practical experience to help small and medium sized businesses. After being a partner in a national firm and then a regional firm Simon wanted to focus on looking after owner managed businesses and decided the best way to do that was to start with a clean sheet of paper, so to that end Aysgarth Chartered Accountants was born.

Simon has spent all his working life in Yorkshire - mainly in and around Leeds. When he is not working his family keeps him busy; he is also a Christian and enjoys cycling, both on his mountain bike and on his road bike.
