About Us

Our History

Winchester Bourne Limited, originally known as Winchester Business & Accounting Services until 2012, was founded in 1993 by Sarah Chadbourne.

In September 2018 we celebrate 25 years.

The aim of this dynamic company is to provide a very cost effective, professional and approachable accounting resource for small to medium sized companies.

There are two main areas of our firm.

The first is the traditional accounting practice where our fully qualified accountants deal with personal tax, tax planning, statutory year end accounts preparation for sole traders, partnerships, LLPs, CICs and many limited companies. Business tax computations, personal taxation, company secretarial work and matters of general compliance.

We provide a full range of business and accounting expertise to numerous companies throughout Hampshire and beyond, some of whom we have worked together with for over 15 years.

The second part of our business is where we become the professional accounts department, the payroll department or provide the management accounting expertise for companies. Many businesses have benefited, and continue to benefit, from the specialist service we provide. With so many advantages over direct employment, or book keeping in a traditional sense, we have a considerable number of businesses who have been valued clients for many years. Whether desktop/server based or increasingly, cloud based solutions [Xero and QuickBooks] the highly experienced, friendly and professional service offered by Winchester Bourne, provides an excellent, cost effective and superior solution for the accounting requirements of their businesses.
