About us

Who we are

Why RPD?

Being there when you need us, rooting for your success – that’s what we’re all about and why clients stay with us once they’ve found us.

You need space to breathe, reassurance when things are tough and practical support.

Whether an owner-manager, limited company, sole trader, trustee or a private individual, our approach is the same. We’ll learn about you, your business and what you want to achieve, then do whatever it takes to help you get there.


You want straight answers and direct advice – not waffle and fence-sitting. We’ll always leave you feeling more certain of the next step.


If there’s a faster, easier way to get the job done, from cloud accounting to communications, we’ll find it and help you to implement it.

People first

We believe that if you build sincere relationships and treat people decently, everything else will naturally fall into place.

“Accountancy isn’t paperwork – it’s problem solving. From compliance to business strategy, people come to us because they want to worry less and spend more time on the things that really matter. So that’s what we aim to deliver, every single day.”

– Matthew Tyson, Director

Case studies

True stories: how we’ve made a difference for people like you

When it comes to choosing an accountant, we know that nothing is more convincing than the testimony of people who are out there running businesses for real. With that in mind, we asked some clients to share their thoughts on the experience of working with Richard Place Dobson. When you read what they have to say, you’ll understand how our people-first approach pays off.

Everybody at Richard Place Dobson is very friendly and personable. As a firm they are efficient and easy to use.

They have no problems dealing with our anomalies and I’m comfortable asking them questions or for advice on matters outside the norm. Richard Place Dobson do a cracking job and are sensibly priced. Simply put, it just works!

– Peter Golding, Finance Director
