About Our Firm

Our core value is to provide exceptional Chartered Accountants, Chartered Tax Advisors and support together to create value, achieve success and develop capital for our clients. 

Cranleys  was established in 1998 from a back bedroom office south of Farnham, Surrey. In 1999 the firm was presented in The Mail of Sunday with Colin Davison also the lead advisor in BizzAdvice.com, a founding business developed to help small companies flourish. 

Later on Colin was promoted in the Blackstar network as the proactive accountant, and went on to set up networks of accountants and small businesses. 

The core being on the property the business wrote books covering business and property related support bibles, for start ups, businesses looking to sell and the most popular for Property Secrets, “Property Tax Secrets”  in 2004 and continued until 2011 in printed form. 

We have always believed in being innovative and getting involved with private individuals looking to grow their businesses, with non-executive support and coaching around the passion of property and consulting businesses. 

We were also one of the first accounting firms in the time to ensure all fees are non-surprise, up front and mostly with all services covered in a monthly fee. 

We are recommended in many property networking circles including Progressive Property, Property Investment Network (PIN). Originally presented with Insidetrack, property investor shows covered 20,000 attendee meetings right down to small estate agency groups such as Romans.

We also hold the Finance Business  accreditation from ICAEW which we have held for the past 5 years since this was developed.  We pride ourselves in providing excellent client care.

“Colin has provided me with some invaluable information regarding property tax and has been a great partner in assisting with my finances. I would have no hesitation in recommending Colin’s services at Cranleys.”

Neil O’Sullivan

Colin has been providing accountancy functions for various of my companies for 5+ years. I initially chose Cranleys as it was local, I stay with them because they are good. I heartily trust Colin’s advice in all things accountancy and he has helped on several occasions to put our businesses on better footings. He very responsive to queries and our cries for help, shields us from all those tax and company chores and provides excellent value. I have recommended Colin’s services to other businesses and will continue to do so.”

Nev Phillips

I was introduced to Colin a number of years ago. I have been very impressed with his knowledge and assistance in our industry and as such I have used Cranleys accountancy services for the past five years. Cranleys have always provided an excellent service at reasonable prices. Colin is also very personable, responsive and helpful in all matters and I would highly recommend his services.
