Located in Torquay, Vincent & Co is at the centre of the Torbay community. We work with all kinds of businesses, providing a wide range of accounting and tax services. In addition, we have an ever-growing community of people who seek our advice about tax issues, inheritance tax, savings and investments.

We love using technology for the benefit of our clients, so while we mainly provide services for local businesses and people, we also advise clients throughout the UK and the rest of the world.

Our ethos is Working With You, Thinking With You and we build a close working relationship with each and every one of our clients.

We’re passionate about confidentiality so we make sure every meeting and all our records meet our exceptionally high standards of protection.

 

The Way We Work

We offer completely free and no obligation consultations to business and private individuals.

This gives us the opportunity to become familiar with specific situations and agree a course to ensure our clients receive the tailored service they need.

Our offices house several private meeting rooms for face-to-face discussions and all our staff work discretely with the emphasis on confidentiality.

In addition, we use Skype for remote face-to-face meetings from a dedicated room which has been set-up to allow open discussion without the risk of being overheard or interrupted.

We are very flexible and will use the best possible methods to communicate with you.

Meet Our Team

Stephen Vincent
MANAGING PARTNER

I founded Vincent & Co in 1985; I did this to help clients understand their tax positions and to help people to develop their businesses. There have been so many changes to the profession since I started, if you have time I could bore you for hours!! Whilst compliance is a major part of accountancy these days, very little was around when I started. I still love being able to share the skills we have with clients wanting to understand their tax positions and develop their businesses.

I love playing golf, very poorly, and enjoy watching sports of all kinds. I am very interested in ancient culture, particularly Egyptology, and human/creation origins.

ADVENTURE, that word always catches my eye too. I’m an adventure seeker who always loves travelling to new places and looking for something unique, when I’m not working or looking for my next holiday I often like to help out on the farm or take my dog for long country walks.

But when working, I am the face you see as you walk in to the office or the main voice you’ll hear on the phone, you lucky clients.
