Making it work for you

At HTB Accountants, we’re proud to provide accounting services for small and medium-sized companies. As Chartered Accountants in Shropshire, we offer a friendly and professional service, with many of our clients outsourcing their accounting requirements including payroll and VAT returns, whilst they focus on what they do best – running and growing their business! For individuals, we also provide a wide range of personal accountancy services.


Our History

The business, formerly known as Bates & Co, was originally founded by Brian Bates in 1990. Initially, Brian worked from home to grow the business for several years before moving to an office location on Copthorne Road, Shrewsbury in 1997. The same year, Amy Telford joined the firm as an Apprentice. Danielle Harvey, who had already completed her apprenticeship at another local firm, joined in 2006 when the firm had outgrown its first office and subsequently moved to its current location on Battlefield Enterprise Park.

Danielle and Amy originally met each other at college and had always dreamed of owning their own practice one day. With this dream always in the back of their minds, Amy and Danielle later bought the business from Brian in 2016 and renamed the firm as it’s known today, HTB Accountants.

Our Team

Harvey Telford & Bates is led by Directors Danielle Harvey and Amy Telford, with an experienced team supporting the clients and all their accounting needs.
