We’re an approachable and friendly team with a lot of experience between us. Founded over seventy years ago with offices in Camberley, Bracknell and Reading, Radford & Sergeant has established itself as a leading firm of accountants in the Thames Valley.
Today, Radford & Sergeant remains as committed as ever to the values upon which it was founded, while continuing to be a dynamic, forward-thinking and client-centred firm.
Our aim is to make sure your business is successful, and we give you more scope to grow and expand your business than the average Accountant!
As well as providing you with a service that really makes a difference to your business, we all have our different interests and things we like to get up to away from our day jobs…
Why not meet the team and see for yourself?
Can you guess who’s our keen jive dancer and who likes to turn the volume up to 11?
