Chartered Certified Accountants

Helping small businesses do what THEY do best since 1969

About Us

First established in 1969, we are Chartered Certified Accountants based in Sanderstead, South Croydon, Surrey.

Our speciality is small business and individual tax, appreciating that our clients are often incredibly busy individuals who need our services to help, support and guide them on their business journey.

Whether you need assistance with annual business accounts, annual landlord accounts, personal and corporate tax returns, tax planning, VAT, payroll (including auto enrolment pensions), CIS, bookkeeping, cloud accounting, company secretarial, IR35 issues, business start-ups, business support or any other associated matter, we can help you.

We understand that, whilst you would perhaps love to have your own internal team of staff, that for most small businesses this is not possible or practical. However, we are here to become part of your team, getting to know you, your business, and helping to give you the benefit of all of our years of experience and knowledge whenever needed.

All our staff are trained to understand that our client’s will ask us questions on a wide range of subjects and, importantly, it is our job to give you the right answer that you can rely on. Whilst we will normally be able to answer the majority of questions asked by you there may be times when we recommend the services of other specialist tried and trusted associates such as larger city based accountants (for one off specialist assignments), Independent Financial Advisors or solicitors. Either way we do our best to ensure that, despite being a small practice, we can give you access to a broad and high level standard of service working as part of a broader team.

The one key thing is that we will help you push forward.

Whether you are an architect, barrister, builder, creative designer, consultant, engineer, hairdresser, musician, property developer, retailer, restauranteur, tailor or run a website, we will understand from day one what we can do to help you succeed – by freeing you up to do what YOU do best.

Christopher White FCCA

Christopher White FCCA

Principal

I joined the practice in 1990 qualifying as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 2002 and am the head of practice. I have worked with small business clients for my entire career and seen the way our clients operate change from the old days of red books and calculators through to the new digital future. Whilst technology moves at an ever-increasing pace, it is no substitute for personal human experience when it comes to dealing with clients’ business challenges and trying to find ways of solving the wide range of issues that arise through a business’s life. I believe, that is where our strength lies.

Little known facts about me: I am a seven-time UK National Karaoke Finalist and an AFC Wimbledon supporter.

Personal Assistant

I have worked for CWM since 2005 and am the PA to Chris and, effectively, the rest of the team as well! Prior to working for CWM I was the PA to a partner at one of the big 4 accounting firms in the City. As well as co-ordinating the team it is also my role to co-ordinate our clients to ensure that we prompt them when a deadline is on the horizon so that there is never the possibility of a client forgetting and getting fined as a result. I am often seen as the first point of contact for clients and direct queries to other staff members as appropriate.

Little known facts about me: I am involved in animal rescue including four of my cats which were found in a box as kittens!

I have worked with CWM since 1997 and am primarily involved in the preparation of annual accounts and tax returns. I also have a strong interest in IT and have been heavily involved in the digital transition occurring within the practice and its clients over the past few years. I am a point of contact for any clients who deal with their own day to day bookkeeping using cloud accounting and am able to help resolve any queries which arise as well as being involved in initial setup and training.

I joined the practice in 2014 and qualified as a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians in 2017. I have been involved in leading the transition of many of our clients away from manual records and spreadsheets to cloud accounting including providing training in the use of QuickBooks online to clients. In regard to day to day accounting matters I am a point of contact in regard to general accounting queries as well as VAT and payroll matters.

I joined CWM in 2019 and primarily work in the cloud accounting part of the practice to ensure we help our clients maintain high quality records used to support the preparation of their VAT submissions as well as their annual accounts. Prior to working for CWM I worked for other accountancy practices for five years before becoming an accounts manager at a large nationwide electrical wholesaler where I ran the accounts department for sixteen years. I particularly enjoy dealing one-to-one with the variety of businesses and individuals that we represent, and support, which ensures that no two days are ever the same.

Payroll Manager

I have worked with CWM since 2014 helping clients fulfil their payroll preparation and filing obligations. There has been much change over the last couple of years with the introduction of auto enrolment as well as real time information payroll (RTI) and I have enjoyed taking clients on the journey with us to ensure continued compliance. I have always worked with small businesses in an accounting role and am used to the unpredictability but also fulfilment that running your own business can bring.

Little known facts about me: I love organising charity and social events – the bigger the better. I’ve ridden the London-Brighton bike ride 5 times so far, with a 6th in 2019 and I’ve also run a half-marathon raising money for charity as I go. I’m also an Ambassador for Lymphoma.
