We are Charlton Baker Chartered Accountants, and we are passionate about being the difference maker to the lives of our clients’ businesses. The right advice and the right solutions are the difference between the good and the great.
If you are looking for real relationships, expert business and tax advice, and want to be part of a great team and business community, we invite you to join us and experience everything it means to be involved with something great.
We are based in Devizes and Pewsey in Wiltshire, and have a regular presence in London, but our clients are positioned throughout all of the UK, as well internationally.
The right advice comes from the team understanding your business better. Our clients say that we are accountants who specialise in fulfilling the needs of the business owner with the desire and vision to grow. We agree, and say that our expertise allows our clients to see their business differently, increasing confidence and control. Together, we are perfectly placed to create success.
Our business has been established for over 30 years and continues to evolve, with our team offering the perfect blend of youthful exuberance and expert hands to provide our clients with a great experience and a trusting relationship to be relied on.
In the early 1980s, the founder Rex Charlton, set up a small provincial practice in Devizes, Wiltshire, and successfully grew the business through building great relationships and offering expert services, values which are still core to Charlton Baker’s success today. In 1996 Scott Sartin, the current owner and managing director, joined the business and began his fast-track to gaining his ACA qualification, whilst still being involved in the business’ continued growth. During this time, the business acquired another local practice in 2003 based in Pewsey, which was a natural acquisition given its locality and helped play a part in making Charlton Baker what it is today.
Becoming a partner in 2005, Scott later became sole owner in 2010, and has continued to oversee the growth and evolution of the business, with Charlton Baker’s appeal stretching to expert hands from large City and Top 10 practices, meaning Team CB boasts some of the best accountants and business advisors available to owner managed businesses.
Over 30 years, the team at Charlton Baker has built excellent relationships with its clients to ensure the longstanding ones remain that way and the new feel part of a great and trustworthy team from the outset. Team CB represents a wide and varied number of client types, all facing different challenges in an ever changing business environment. The client base also includes niche service offerings for clients in the Media and Entertainment industry, as well as Land, Property and Real Estate.
Following a further acquisition in 2015, Charlton Baker is very well placed to continue in its success, and work towards achieving its vision for the benefit of the team and clients alike.
Our vision is to be recognised as a team which has helped to change the face of accountancy and which has helped to change the lives of others along the way.
Alongside this, we have two missions. Our collective mission is to lead the way in the Accountancy World. This means we need to challenge and invite every single person or business involved with us to find ways to continuously grow, evolve, and be the best version of themselves possible. Secondly, every team member has a daily mission; whatever we do today, leave ourselves and our clients in a better place.
To achieve our vision and mission, we have set our core values.
At Team CB, we believe in:
1. Real relationships
2. Everything we do making a positive difference
3. Team CB
4. Embracing the new
5. Be excellent
Our fifth core value is supported by our six pillars of performance, and it is this mindset that helps us to be the difference makers and leave ourselves and our clients in a better place.
