THP Wanstead Office

As members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants with over 50 trained professionals working out of five locations across London and Essex we have more specialists on our team than you can shake a stick at.

Whether it be cloud bookkeeping and accounting, shareholders agreements, tax planning, auditing or just general business advice there’s always someone at THP who’s seen it before. We can even handle all the associated legal parts so you won’t ever need to engage a lawyer as well as a chartered accountant.

Chartered Accountants Wanstead

A nice leafy suburban area of North East London, Wanstead is the head office to our small network of local branches.

Our specialist audit and advanced tax planning teams are both based here, which truly means that “City firm” expertise is available right on your doorstep.

And being located in outer London means we don’t charge “City” prices.

Travel in couldn’t be easier as we are located on Wanstead high street within a few minutes’ walk of both Snaresbrook and Wanstead Underground stations.

25 minutes from the middle of London on the Central line. That’s the red one.

Our Wanstead office provides the full range of services for a wide range of clients.

Accounting and Legal Services include:-


Whether you’re a sole trader looking for a no-frills accounting service or a larger business seeking a firm that provides more complex tax or business advice, we can help.

Whereas the majority of local accountancy firms offer a basic service to smaller companies, we are of a size where we can truly cover all financial needs while maintaining the feel of a friendly local firm. Large enough to cope and small enough to care as the cliché goes.

We even have our own legal services department which means you won’t need a separate solicitor to draft legal documents such as Shareholders Agreements or Lasting Powers of Attorney. We can do the whole shebang.

However large your business becomes, you can be sure that you won’t ever outgrow us; we will always be thereto help you. We’ve watched many of our small sole trader businesses grow to become large partnerships and limited companies and are ideally qualified to help when you need to do the same.

For the benefit of you, Google and other search engines…..

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.

How can an audit actually help my business?

An audit is not something you look forward to. It simply has to be done and that’s that.  Or is it ?

First, if you’re not sure whether you need an audit or not, talk to us – we can give you the right advice.

Secondly, if you do require an audit, we’re here to make sure that your audit does not disrupt the running of your business, and results in financial reporting with significant commercial value to you.

Here’s how an audit can help :

  • You have the most accurate, up-to-date financial information for making good decisions
  • Your risk of fraud or error is reduced, because it’s more likely irregularities will be found quickly
  • You gain extra credibility with lenders, clients and credit rating agencies


Our auditors are fully experienced and all audits are signed off by our in-house RIs (Responsible Individuals). We also offer forensic accounting, if you require that.


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.

It’s not just about tax returns – we are with you for life

The need for a tax return is often the first trigger to searching for an accountant. And naturally the preparation of  personal and corporate tax returns is second nature to us. We have invested heavily in our professional team and our systems and processes to ensure we can deliver this service in the most efficient way.

Because we understand that tax compliance, the right returns and claims filed in the correct way on a timely basis is important.

But our mindset goes far beyond simply ticking the tax return boxes. We’re fascinated with the numbers, the variety of each individual tax situation – of your own personal tax situation.

And if your life and business expand, so that you need far more than just a tax return, we’re there to give you our perspective on the opportunities and possibilities available to you.

We will…

  • Explore your full financial situation, both personal and business
  • Help you understand the numbers within your tax return
  • Assist you in planning for upcoming tax payments
  • Provide tax planning so you make the most of what’s available to you
  • Assist you in planning for upcoming tax payments


Because our goal is to know you as a person, to whom the numbers and the boxes and the money mean something real.

We'd love to hear from you!
