The History of Stones Accountancy Ltd

Stones Accountancy was incorporated in 2006, after founder Peter O’Donnell took over the Maidstone accountancy practice DA Shipp & Co.  As the company had already been operating in the area for more than 40 years, Stones Accountancy got off to a good start, with the already extensive experience of the employees and business practices taken fully on board.  Today Stones Accountancy are very much accountants for the modern age, and continue to remain up to date with the latest industry laws and practices, such as IR35 and utilising modern software including QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks online, Xero, Sage and FreeAgent.
