Case Studies


“Since choosing Champion, they have been invaluable to me and my business. It’s like having a best friend who is always there to solve your problems. Their communication is second to none, always helping to build my confidence in what I’m doing. My client manager speaks to me in a way that I understand and there’s never any of this accountancy jargon, which is what I got from my old accountant. They’ve done such a great job with our R&D claims that we’re now moving our entire accountancy and advisory needs over to Champion.”

Dale Allen, Founder at Sevron


“We were introduced to Champion before we launched our business in 2012 and have been a client ever since our incorporation. There is no doubt that Champion has contributed to our existential growth during this time period, as the team’s services have been invaluable to us on every step of our journey. Initially, we appointed them to undertake bookkeeping and management accounts, but Champion now provides a holistic service across our entire business, including ongoing strategic advice about the steps we can take to expand our operations further. Working with Champion is a prime example of how professional relationships evolve over time, and we are so pleased to have had them at the helm of our support network for nearing a decade.”

Greg Mulligan, Director at Mulbury Homes Ltd


“Champion’s expertise is invaluable to us. If you want an accountancy partner that’s really invested in you, then definitely speak with Champion.”

Chris Jenkins, Director at The Great Northern Property Company


“We’ve worked with Champion for more than six years, and, simply put, they’ve supported us with full accountancy and advisory services. I’d describe the relationship with Champion as a partnership. They show genuine interest in our business and have been proactive in offering advice and support – that’s not the case with all accountants. It’s really refreshing that they don’t just look backwards but are involved in discussions that look forwards, for example, as we continue to invest in R&D, and help us to make improvements.

“It’s been personal too. We’ve found the whole Champion team to be friendly, reliable and, importantly, quick to respond – speed is important for us as a fast-paced business. There have also been occasions where some of the Champion team have come into our business to support in-person.”

Debbie Bell, Director at DB Agencies
