Read Woodruff has been providing accountancy services and tax advice to people and businesses in Dorchester since 1992, changing as the town and its economy has changed.

Community-focused accounting

Our commitment to community is real. We’ve always been based in the South West of England and our love for the landscape, the culture and the people runs deep. We sponsor a local youth football team and the Read Woodruff Dorchester and District evening cricket league – because what’s a county town in Thomas Hardy’s Wessex without cricket?

Of course those local connections pay off professionally, too: being rooted in one place for so long, you get to know the important local business contacts. When you choose to work with us, you get the benefit of our networks and join an exciting community of clients. 

Our people and knowledge

We’ve got a great team as skilled at listening as they are getting the details right. We’ve got veterans working alongside up-and-coming talent, giving you access to the best combination of experience and bright ideas. We’re committed to learning from each other and through ongoing training, with one eye always on the future.

We’re members of a professional training association and have consultancy agreements with tax experts, which gives us access to specialist knowledge and means we’re always up to date with latest developments. As well as providing all the services you would expect from an accountancy firm, we offer accessible, easy-to-follow training and support for a variety of bookkeeping software.

Making a difference

All our consultations start with listening – what’s on your mind? What do you need to make life easier and to achieve your ambitions, professional or personal? We believe that the secret of our success lies in making connections and designing highly personalised support packages for each client.

We work with all kinds of clients from people who want their annual tax return done and dusted to dynamic local businesses. Whether they’re private individuals, sole traders, in a partnership or operating limited companies, our happy clients all say the same thing: the quality of our service is outstanding.
