Our main concern is the health and wellbeing of our staff, clients, and communities. With this in mind, and in line with the latest advice, our offices are now closed.
However, we are still available via email and on the phone to help and support our clients during this challenging time.
Our team of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors are based across six offices in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire – King’s Lynn, Great Yarmouth, Fakenham, Wisbech, Downham Market and March.
For more than 100 years we have been providing expert, tailored advice to our clients, with personal finance, business accounting and taxation.
We have a wealth of experience and pride ourselves on the wide range of services that we can provide, from advice on inheritance tax and succession planning, to probate and ATOL reporting.
We aren’t the type of accountants that like to keep our feet behind a desk. We believe in the personal touch and would much rather work with you, than for you, in delivering an outstanding level of service.

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.

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, Manager 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.
Rob Knight, Owner, Richard Knight Homes, Wisbech
We have mixed in the same business circles as Stephenson Smart partner Clive Dodds for years and he looks after both our professional and personal accounts.
Dan Jastrebzski, the company’s Making Tax Digital specialist has also been a great support with helping us to switch over to this new way of keeping our records digitally. The changeover caused great fear for me as I’m not particularly tech-savvy, but he made it simple and easy. Without his help it could have been a total nightmare.
We have been involved in a few businesses and I think it’s important to be able to source an accountant, who can act for both small businesses and major players. Stephenson Smart can do exactly that.
