Clay Ratnage was established in East London in 1927. Over the years the Practice has evolved and has had offices in Walthamstow (1927-1982), Chingford (1982-2008) and Loughton (1976-1982), but now operates from two offices in Essex at Wickford (since 1960) and Romford (since 2002).
The firm currently has 5 Partners and approximately 30 staff.
The Practice has been built around providing support to local family businesses in Wickford, Basildon, Romford and the surrounding areas and, whilst this continues to comprise the largest part of our client base, we now have a wide variety of clients across the UK and beyond.
The philosophy of the firm has been to maintain a “general practice” approach to clients. This means all staff have experience of Accounts, Tax and Audit and are therefore able to provide general assistance with day to day queries that may arise.
We also have a specialist tax department to deal with the more complicated tax issues and those ad hoc planning matters that require more than a general level of expertise.
We aim to provide a timely and cost effective service and look to build long term relationships with our clients by delivering this in a helpful and friendly manner.
Due to the longevity of the firm we have experience in virtually all business/industrial sectors and can boast a client portfolio that in addition to building, property, manufacturing, retail and general trading businesses contains;
• Not for Profit Organisations
o Social Enterprises
o Flat/Estate Management
• Pension Schemes
• Solicitor Accounts Rules audits
• FCA client money laundering reporting
We can also advise on business acquisitions, disposals and mergers.
