Our Story

We’re a tech-driven team redefining the way our customers do things.

We recognise that you’re innovators, and you’re inspiring others. And because of that, we understand what start-ups and tech businesses require from an accounting firm.

You’ve got big ideas in mind, and you need the right support to execute them. That’s why we’re here: To help you achieve amazing things like Magic Pony Technology (a former client of ours) once did.

The story behind Barnes & Scott

When we set up Barnes & Scott, we wanted to have a name that portrayed a sense of continuous growth.

What we noticed is the top 100 firms were mostly made up of two surnames. So, “Barnes” came to light because we thought it sounded elegant, and “Scott” was simply the name of someone we knew.

Even though we don’t have anyone called “Barnes” or “Scott”, we think the name and our brand elephant symbolises strength and power, which is what we’re always trying to bring to our clients!
