THP Saffron Walden Office

Our Saffron Walden office is arguably situated in the most picturesque location of all of our offices. If you have never visited Saffron Walden then you are in for a treat. If you already live in the local area you’ll know how just lucky you are.

The medieval town of Saffron Walden is a fine example of the quintessential English lifestyle. This rural market town makes the ideal location for our busy office with its rich heritage and stunning period buildings.

Offering the full range of accountancy and financial services, THP Saffron Walden is also the home of our Payroll angels. They work tirelessly to ensure that THP’s payroll service operates to the peak of efficiency and have been deeply involved in managing our client’s smooth transition to the Auto Enrolment system over the last few years.

Some team members at THP Saffron Walden have been working there all their working lives and everyone will be only too happy to help you in any way they can.

If you are a regular visitor, you will often come across team members from our other offices working out of Saffron Walden as well who are keen to escape from the hustle and bustle of London and Chelmsford!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your approach to Chartered Accountancy?

THP stands for Timely Turnaround, Highly Transparent and People before Computers.

You can read all about this and what makes THP different from other Chartered Accountants here.

What services do you offer?

Whether it be cloud bookkeeping and accounting, shareholder agreements, tax planning, auditing or just general business advice there’s always someone at THP who’s seen it before. We can often handle the associated legals as well.

Yes! At THP we much prefer to meet you face to face and listen to your problems and learn about your individual circumstances. That’s what the P in THP stands for!

After that first free meeting of up to an hour we will tell you what we can do to help you and what it will cost. You can then decide whether you would like to proceed but our friendly team will not pressure you in any way.

Your accounts – the mainstay of your accounting services with THP

For years accountants reveled in the fact that they’re the experts, portraying the mystery of accountancy like the Wizard of Oz – lots of smoke and confusion, but now we know it’s just a little man turning the knobs behind the curtain.

Yes, you could just read up on the vast reams of HMRC material and figure it out yourself. Cloud accounting has taken away the mystery, and you can do the basics of accounting on your own.

But is that what you really want ? To become an accountant yourself ?

If you’d rather focus your time where it matters, then THP Chartered Accountants provides the expert advice of a friendly, helpful accountant who can make what you want happen. It’s just like magic, but without the mystery.

Tax planning helps ensure that you’re getting the life you want

The best way to pay less tax is to plan ahead. And with the right tax planning advice from THP, you’ll keep more of your money to enjoy, invest, save or pass on.

For your business, all you may need is a corporate tax return and naturally that’s just second nature for our experienced team. But perhaps your business is doing so well, growing so rapidly that it’s hard for you to see the longer-term picture? That’s when THP gives you a helping hand with the possibilities that we know will affect you – because we listen.

This could include:

  • Discovering the most efficient tax structure for your business
  • Ensuring you benefit from tax reliefs relevant to you
  • Looking for tax opportunities specific to your industry
  • Helping you time transactions so you reduce tax exposure
  • Explore your eligibility for research and development tax credits


If it’s personal tax planning you need, we also work with high net worth individuals to help address investment portfolio or inheritance tax issues.

Whether you’re working, in business, or retired, the beauty of our tax planning services is in the care we take in understanding your true situation, and helping you prepare for the life you want.

We will…

  • Explore your full financial situation, both personal and business
