About

We, James and Dean have known each other since the start of University. We both wanted to run our own business at some point and thought we might be stronger together. We set up Anderson & Edwards in February 2021, and are now based in Edinburgh, Scotland. James specialises in tax and trust funds for our clients, whilst Dean is our expert in accounts, cloud software and cashflow forecasting.

We both have a similar mindset when it comes to our clients. Service always comes first for us. We’ve worked in the industry long enough to know that excellent service is missing from many accountancy firms. That’s why we stand by doing the right thing, even if it means being brutally honest about your financial position. If we can’t help you, we’ll be upfront about it. If we can, we’ll do our best to make sure it is for your benefit.

Chartered Tax Advisor
Association of Taxation Technicians

I didn't want anyone to put pressure on me for spending too much time getting to know my clients. A big part of starting Anderson & Edwards was to help others in the long term rather than the short term.

  • A member of the Association of Tax Technicians and Chartered Tax Advisor issues.
  • James specialises in the taxation of individuals as well as the taxation of trusts, estates, and inheritance tax. This allows him to deal with a range of issues, from employees with income tax issues, to farmers with capital gains tax and succession issues.
  • Outside of tax, James is a keen musician, Edinburgh (and Welsh) Rugby fan, dabbles in bowls, and trying to find an excuse to get into sailing.
