Martin maintains his membership of both Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) and the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA), and he also holds a Public Practice Certificate from the ACCA.
Prior setting up in practice for himself, Martin spent over 20 years working in business, in a variety of business sectors, which gives him the ‘hands on’ practical experience to be able to advise and support his clients.

Although a small firm, Tregonning and Co is subject to the same ethical and professional standards as larger firms, but still able to provide a personal service where we get to know you and your business.
Surprisingly, anyone in the UK can set themselves up as an accountant. There are many people offering accountancy services to the public who hold no recognised qualifications, and their clients will have no way of knowing whether they can rely on their expertise.
This is why we believe it is wise to seek the services of a fully qualified Chartered Accountant.
A firm of Chartered Accountants is one where the principals of the firm are members of one of the five UK Chartered Accountancy bodies or a member of a recognised international accounting body.

I have known Martin for many years and appreciate his thoughtfulness when it comes to other people, attention to detail and his knowledge and expertise in his field. Appreciate his sense of humour too :)
I would really like to recommend Martin's accounting services to anyone thinking of starting a business or in fact currently running a new business. Martin's professional and positive guidance has really given me the confidence to progress.

I cannot recommend Martin's services highly enough - his insight and knowledge into all aspects of running a business are indispensable and having someone trustworthy around to bounce ideas off and get honest opinions and feedback from is immeasurably helpful. As I keep reminding him, if Carlsberg made accountants, he'd be one.
Martin has been our accountant now for 6 months and I cannot recommend his services highly enough, Martin's professionalism and knowledge is second to none. I have always found Martin to be very helpful and honest when I have needed advice. Martin's expertise is an asset to any company and he comes greatly recommended.
Martin has been my accountant since 2009 and I can thoroughly recommend his services to anyone especially small businesses or self employed people. A very thorough and knowledgable person who can help you run your business properly.
