Company Background

Lawrence Young is a Basingstoke Accountant that provides business improvement assistance primarily to small and medium sized businesses. Although we serve businesses in the local area of North Hampshire, the practice serves clients throughout the country and overseas.

Our services are based on the development and improvement of appropriate strategies to give business owners and managers the results they initially established their businesses for. As such we go much further than the 'normal' accounting practice, providing not just accounting and tax services, but strategic, operational and marketing advice and assistance, including where appropriate personal and professional development services (e.g. skills training, coaching and mentoring, sales and management training).


The business was established in 1999 by Keith Lawrence, having previously worked at Director level within the Telecommunications industry, where he successfully used his management and analytical skills in finance, IT, HR and strategy to bring about significant corporate growth and bottom line improvements. Supported by a team of competent advisers and support staff, he is now applying similar, but appropriately tailored, improvement models to smaller businesses - the large businesses of the future.
