Welcome to Crawfords Accountants

Crawfords Accountants is one of the oldest independent accounting firms in Manchester. However,  we’re not just number crunchers, we are also business advisors who understand that practical problems demand practical solutions.

Our accountants identify with everyday business issues and we talk fluent common sense to help you build business success. It’s this simple, no nonsense philosophy that embodies the Crawfords Culture.

Based in Salford, Manchester, we’ve quietly carved a reputation as the end-to-end accountancy solution in the North West. We offer accounting services from business planning through to tax advice, auditing and commercial fraud. We work closely with our clients – which span from start ups through to Plcs – to identify how we can help you run the most profitable business possible.

Whether you’re in need of a full business overhaul or if the admin of bookkeeping and payroll is keeping you from the important business of focussing on growing your business – Crawfords can provide accounting services to suit you.
