Our Story

Ian Anthony founded IA Accountants in 2018.  Ian has over 25 years experience as a qualified Chartered Accountant with EY in London. Now, after a successful city career, Ian has given up the daily London commute in favour of running his own accountancy practise in Harpenden near St Albans.

Nearly all of our clients have come through personal recommendation and we have clients ranging from start-ups to £1m + turnover.  In addition to Statutory accounts and tax returns our work in the last year has included business break-up valuations, Seed Enterprise Scheme and Enterprise scheme advanced assurance applications, business plans, management accounts and accounting system conversions.
