Hi Dick,
for your reference, I googled you today and found that link and phoned the number there - but apparently that phone number is out of date (according to the woman who answered the phone.
Glad to know the email is still correct - was actually in the process of emailing you at that address!

I am based in Penzance and Bristol and have specialised in CICs since they began....if I can be of any ordinary times can visit Somerset when travelling between my 2 bases. As I dont have a large office to support clients often find me more reasonable than bigger firms of chartered accountants

Do any of you know of an accountant in south west England who specialises in CICs..? or at least has experience with CICs?
Ideally somewhere in Dorset, Somerset or Wiltshire...?
I'm getting close to setting up a CIC but first of all want to make sure we have a reliable accountant.
(To register the CIC, we will of course need an address and would prefer to use the address of an accountant rather than our home address - hence needing to sort out an accountant before registering).
Also, do please let me know if there's somewhere else on this site that I could post my request, as well as in this group.
Many thanks for any help and advice!
