About us

What makes us different?

In a word: togetherness. At Whitley Stimpson, we work closely with families and businesses, giving them the accountancy advice they need to succeed.

We’re based primarily in Oxfordshire with offices in Banbury, Bicester, High Wycombe and Witney, but our services reach all the way from the Cotswolds to the powerhouse of business in London. We’re committed to helping every one of our clients across the area with a brilliant standard of service, as well as giving back to the community by working with local charities and non-profit groups.

When you talk to one of our team, we don’t want you to feel we’re just going through the motions – we want you to feel listened to. Once we understand what your business and your family needs, we’ll work out how our services can best support you. From there, we’ll stay in touch with practical guidance and answers to any questions you have.

We believe it’s our willingness to listen, connect and share ideas, along with the expert knowledge we’ve gained in 90 years of experience, that makes us one of the top 100 practices in the country.

Our heritage

Whitley Stimpson was founded in 1931 in High Street, Banbury. Since then, we’ve kept growing our expertise, our team and our geographical reach, developing into one of the largest independent accountancy firms in the M40 corridor.

In 2010, we merged with the auditing and taxation business of the Hale Partnership, giving us a second permanent base in High Wycombe. We grew further in 2014, when we merged with Baxter, Payne and Haigh Ltd in Bicester, and then again in 2016 with the Morgan Harris Group in Witney.

Each step of our growth has helped us give more to our clients – a wider range of services and stronger sector-specific knowledge – all while keeping the personal connection that’s always been at the core of what we do.

Staying connected

Things can change quickly in the world of business and finance. To keep you in the loop, we update our news feed daily on the topics that matter to you.

We also publish regular guides and tips on all things accountancy, along with recordings of our live video events, so you’ll never have to miss out.
