It’s very simple really. If I have a question, however trivial, Henry will answer it in terms that I understand and put me at ease. He looks after all areas of accounting for us and nothing is ever too much trouble. He may be my accountant, but I also class him as a friend.
Marcelle Swann, Managing Director, Ocean Bay Amusements, Gorleston
Stephenson Smart has been our accountancy firm for about four years, looking after our payroll, bookkeeping, tax, management accounts and RND (research and development) tax relief.
We employ 18 people, so as a small business it’s important to be able to put our trust in an accountancy firm. We don’t feel like we are a number, we view Chris as an extension to our team. If I had to sum up Stephenson Smart in one word it would be awesome.

When you’re in business, it’s very reassuring to have the Stephenson Smart team on your side. Partner Henry Pettitt and his colleagues at the Great Yarmouth office offer a huge amount of expertise that we are able to access quickly and easily to support our day-to-day operations and long term strategy.
What’s particularly refreshing is the way they deliver expert services and professional guidance in such a friendly and approachable way. I would heartily recommend anyone in business to make Stephenson Smart part of their team.
Steve Scott, Managing Director, TMS Media, Great Yarmouth
When I took over the business I had a bit of a reboot, it was a new generation with new ideas. Having said that I stuck with Stephenson Smart, not because we had been clients since 1922, but because of Claire’s vibrant, conscientious attitude. She looks after a broad spectrum of accountancy for us including tax advice, account preparation and VAT.
There are two certainties in life – death and taxes, so you need to have a good accountant behind you as estate planning is crucial.
Jon Brown, Farmer, Fairfield Farm, Kings Lynn
Our business has been in our family for 60 years and everything we build is bespoke, therefore when our in-house accountant retired we needed to find the right accountants to work with.
Chris at Stephenson Smart is very easy going, nothing ever seems to be a problem. He looks after all our payroll and books and has become like another employee of the company – that is how we view him.
