Here at Thorne Widgery (TW), although rightly proud of our 70 year history we’re definitely not stuck in the past! We believe that looking ahead is more important and know it’s this approach that’s resulted in growing our own business to the largest firm of accountants in Herefordshire, and expansion to Ludlow, Shropshire.
Of course accountants have to deal with historical information but that should be the start of the process, not the end. It’s a bit like driving a car – glancing in the rear view mirror is important but it’s more important to stay focused on the road ahead.
At TW we believe in using our experience and expertise to help clients get to where they want to go and our philosophy is simple. Our clients are our greatest source of referrals, so we focus on servicing them really well, to give them the confidence to recommend us to others.
“We’ve known Kevin Tong at Thorne Widgery for quite a few years and he has been very helpful in looking after our tax and accounts. He is also very pragmatic and understands that for us ‘family’ always comes before ‘business’. We have turned to him for advice on agricultural and business reliefs as well as inheritance planning, which will be crucial for us to sort out in the years ahead.”

Thorne Widgery Partner, Kevin Tong, has provided Charles Turner with accountancy and business support for more than 20 years and Thorne Widgery’s longstanding relationship with the business goes back in excess of 50 years.
“I’ve always been able to turn to Kevin as a sounding board,” said Charles. “In addition to taking care of our annual accounts, he was very helpful in sorting out succession planning issues after I took over the farm from my dad and uncle. I know I can rely on him to provide me with sound advice no matter what’s around the corner.”
Although Charles does not shy away from the challenges that Brexit will bring, he is also reassured that, with Kevin’s assistance, he has done everything possible to secure the future of his farming enterprise.
