Client focused, for business success

PKF Francis Clark is about much more than just accountancy. We’re trusted business advisors, working in partnership with our clients to enhance their performance. Their goals are our goals, and through close working relationships (and because we love what we do) when they succeed, so do we. There is no better feeling than a happy client.

Broad and deep, far and wide

The breadth and depth of the services provided by PKF Francis Clark is exceptional. From CIS tax advice to cloud accounting and from grant advisory to specialist advice to the renewables sector, we apply our knowledge and experience right across the spectrum. It means that our staff enjoy both variety and specialisation – something increasingly few firms can offer.

With 7 offices, we serve a large geographical area. From Dorset in the east, through Somerset and Devon, to Cornwall in the west. However, this belies the fact that whilst the majority of our clients are near our offices, we have a significant number of clients spread across the UK, as well as an increasing number of international businesses. Unsurprisingly, we work with a wide range of industries, from marine and rural-based industries to the increasingly prolific tech sector.

Specialist knowledge gives us unique strength.

A stand-out feature of PKF Francis Clark is our specialist sector knowledge. Every sector has its unique features, and understanding these is key to providing relevant advice to businesses. This is why we take our sector specialisms seriously, immersing our teams to enable them to gain experience and insight. Staff usually have the opportunity to work with a wide range of sectors in their early years, but can then start to develop significant expertise in sectors which interest them as they progress through their careers. For clients and staff this is a win-win solution.
