Chris Scullard

Managing Director

Chris qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2002. He was made a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales in 2012.


Chris trained as a Chartered Accountant at PwC, the largest accountancy firm in the world. He moved on to head finance departments in both PLC and SME businesses before founding Scullard & Co in 2011. Due to this unique blend of experience he is perfectly placed to provide ‘standard’ accountancy services AND provide small business owners with tools and information larger businesses use as the backbone of their success.

Kate Sadler

Trainee Accountant

Kate joined the team at Scullard in summer 2016 and she is currently studying the final level of her AAT qualification.  After this she plans to train as a Chartered Accountant with Scullard.  In the short time she has been with us she has become an integral member of the team.


We work with businesses of all sizes, from start ups to £million companies in a variety of sectors. Our key specialism, and where we are different from other accountancy firms, is our commitment to deliver high quality financial information and advice to our clients to help them improve their businesses and improve their quality of life. Therefore we work with business owners who want this extra level of support.


It doesn’t matter if your business turns over millions or you are just starting out. If you want to build a successful and profitable business we want to work with you. And we can help you achieve those ambitions.

Dave HobanScullard & Co have gone above and beyond my expectations since and including our initial meeting. Most accountants I have dealt with in the past simply tick boxes to make sure that accounts and return are filed on time. Scullard & Co go the extra mile and help where ever they can to help improve my business, and most importantly for me they are at the end of the phone when I need them to be and have spent the time to understand the needs of my business. In short highly recommended!!!
