Proud of our 128 year heritage, the Shorts of today is a vibrant and growing firm.  Based in Chesterfield and Sheffield we have a strong and functional senior team, many of whom have worked at senior levels within international / regional firms, giving us a depth of experience, which is unrivalled within the local marketplace.

 Our business is structured across 4 distinct services:

 Accountancy.  Our audit department is led by 2 partners with substantial experience at senior levels within PricewaterhouseCoopers. In addition, we have developed a significant specialism with the provision of monthly management accounts using Xero, Exact and our proprietary management accounts software Genus.

Business & Innovation Taxes.  Our highly qualified team contains over 10 Chartered Tax Advisers, more than any independent accountancy practice within the region. This team is focussed on bringing relevant tax planning ideas to our clients as a matter of course. We particularly specialise in helping companies to claim R&D and Patent Box tax reliefs.

Private Client. Our Private Client Service is market leading. By integrating advice across the separate but connected areas of investment management, estate planning, risk minimisation, tax mitigation and compliance we are able to offer our clients individually tailored, modern solutions to their wealth management needs.

Corporate Finance.  Our team have worked in top 10 accounting firms, industry and commercial banking. They work hand in hand with all other service lines within the firm to ensure we provide our clients with a fully integrated service which enhances value to them throughout the process.
