About DBA Accountants Leeds

Accountant Leeds

The practice was founded in 1995 by Duncan Barr to provide accountancy services to owner-managed businesses throughout Leeds, West Yorkshire (and occasionally beyond).

Duncan is currently assisted by two qualified accountants, Chris and Amie. All members of staff are experienced at dealing with the issues that face the business owner-manager. Each client has either Chris or Amie appointed as their dedicated accountant. In this way lines of communication are kept very short and we get an excellent understanding of each individual client’s business and personal situation and their service needs.

We invest heavily in staff training to ensure that we are all abreast of current tax and accounting issues. We also make full use of available Information Technology and have been at the forefront of on-line filing with both HMRC and Companies House.

Although small in number, we are big on client service. This means we always put clients’ interests first.

We do:

  • Respond immediately to telephone calls and emails
  • Provide clear advice
  • Complete work promptly

We do not:

  • Sell dubious “tax schemes”
  • Send your books and records overseas to be processed
  • Charge exorbitant fees

We are based on the outskirts of Leeds city centre, just off the Inner Ring Road and close to Junction 2 of the M621. There is always ample free parking right outside our offices. Where they prefer, we visit clients at their own premises.
