About Us

Butler & Gee are a forward thinking accountancy firm who combine the professional and respected traditions of the past with a flexible and adapting approach to the ever changing tax and accountancy legislation of the future.

Over the last 18 years we have become an established and respected accountancy and tax practice. From day one we set out our stall to provide a high quality service with value for money fees that are agreed in advance with you the client.

We take a genuine professional interest in the direction of your business or financial interests and back that up with sound advice that you can understand and benefit from. No matter how large or small your financial affairs are we undertake all our work on a very professional and competent basis ensuring confidentiality is observed as a matter of course.

The directors, Chris Butler and Darren Gee and at Shotley Bridge - Consett, Pauline Henderson, have developed a great deal of experience and business knowledge to be able to advise businesses and individuals from all backgrounds who need assistance in any manner of situation. Our clientel is mainly based in the County Durham and North East of England area, however, ongoing growth and development combined with our reputation has now lead to us undertaking referral work all over the UK and even overseas.

Working alongside the directors is a team of staff who play a vital supporting role helping to deliver our high standards. Their own knowledge and experience grows on a daily basis thereby ensuring that they too will bring long term continuing benefit and skills to the practice.

Since 1996 we have built up a reputation for offering a high standard of service to clients and maintaining it year after year. Our varied clientel ranges from self employed sole traders, partnerships and limited companies in business to private individuals with complicated tax affairs and a self assessment tax return to file.

To complement our services we have a very competitive and reasonable fee structure with fixed fees agreed in advance of any work being undertaken. Our fees are based solely on undertaking the core piece of work with all associated meetings, correspondence and telephone calls not incurring any further charges.

Contact or visit us at either the Barnard Castle or Shotley Bridge - Consett office and see how we can benefit your own tax circumstances.

Butler and Gee is licensed to practice under the supervision of the Association of Accounting Technicians with Chris Butler being a licensed Member in Practice. Furthermore all our accounting staff are professionally AAT trained and qualified. All qualified staff are members of the AAT and undertake structured Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to comply with AAT and professional obligations.
