FLB is an independent firm of Chartered Certified Accountants and business advisors situated in Winnersh Triangle, Berkshire. FLB’s highly qualified and experienced team is guided by the two founding partners all from top 20 firm backgrounds.

The experience and expertise of the team was further enriched during 2011 when the FLB merged with Foreman & Hill, a firm of Chartered Accountants who have been providing proactive accounting and taxation services to owner managed business throughout the Thames Valley and London for the past 50 years.

FLB’s reputation is built on our continued ability to deliver proactive, commercially focused tax efficient advice in the following core areas:

  • Business structure
  • Business growth
  • Cash extraction
  • Exit route planning
  • Asset protection

FLB is a dynamic practice offering more than just the traditional accountancy services. We understand that entrepreneurs are driven by vision and thrive on change.

We are a firm that focuses on understanding the needs of our clients and through working closely with them we are able to easily identify problems and spot opportunities, which ultimately helps improve performance and encourage sustained growth.

We are fairly unique in that the individual backgrounds and experience of the partners and senior consultants enables us to provide the same high quality advice associated with top tier firms, but since we do not have their cost base, at a more competitive price.

In a changing world, our support is constant and enables our clients to achieve their goals. We aim to build long term relationships and to work with you in a proactive manner.

Our priority is to protect your interests, individually as well as in business.

The two partners are supported by a team of professionally qualified staff and senior consultants.
