About Us

We are a small team with big business experience.  Based in Somerset with clients throughout the country. 

Colette Dinnes pic

Colette trained in London and worked there for 10 years, when the demands of family life brought her back to the West Country. She is a qualified Chartered Accountant who has enjoyed working for Saffery Champness and KPMG, as well as Somerset based firms before setting up her own business with Stephen.

Colette loves the freedom of working in a small dedicated team giving top quality service to her clients. She is an active networker and has built strong connections with local solicitors, bank managers and financial advisors.

When she escapes the office she seeks light relief in a glass of wine and cycling in the beautiful Somerset countryside-although not at the same time!

Neil Cottey pic

Neil is certainly a local; his family has been on the same farm for about 100 years to date. This background has given him a keen sense of community that has fuelled activities such as a 300 mile walk in aid of church roof renovations, acting as a director at Taunton Town FC, and treasurer at St George's Church, Wilton. More recently family commitmentshave absorbed most of his spare time.

To broaden his experience after A levels he went to University College London but returned to Taunton to embark on an accountancy career with one of the larger firms in town. He has been working with Patricia for over 17 years, and there are not many accounting systems or types of business that have not crossed his path. It has proved an effective working relationship that is now embarking on an extra dimension.

Patricia trained in South Africa before returning to the UK and working in Surbiton and London for Saffery’s. Whilst abroad Patricia specialised in non-resident tax matters and domicile issues for both British and non-British nationals, and she continued with this area of expertise when she set up her own practice.

Patricia has now retired from day to day office working and is enjoying her many interests and enthusiasms. We are extremely fortunate that Patricia continues to be available as a consultant to assist in specialist areas.
