Duncan & Toplis was established in 1925 and has since grown into one of the largest independent firms of chartered accountants and business advisers in the Midlands. We offer a wide range of services, from accountancy, audit and tax to payroll, human resources and IT support services to businesses across the Midlands, UK and beyond.
We are an award-winning company and hold a number of titles, including ICAEW East Midlands Large Accountancy Firm, a British Accountancy Award for Outstanding Advisory / Client Project of the Year and a Gold Award from Investor in Customers. We also appear in the top 30 UK accountancy practices list published by Accountancy Age.
We are a member of Kreston International, giving our clients access to international markets through established professional contacts, which presents a range of exciting opportunities for our people and clients. We put our people front and centre of all that we do, and we pride ourselves on attracting and retaining top talent. Our people centric strategic plan demonstrates how committed we are to investing in the learning and development of our team members.
Our trainee accountants are enrolled onto a fully funded and supported three-year ACA training contract. This allows them to gain experience and expert insight across each of our services, including audit, accountancy and taxation as well as early opportunities to meet with clients and really see how the business operates. This helps our trainees to gain the professional experience they need to both succeed in their qualification and become a qualified accountant and business adviser.
At Duncan & Toplis, our people have all the benefits and opportunities that come with working for a large independent practice with the community feel of a smaller practice, where individual commitment and contributions are celebrated. You’ll enjoy a generous benefits package which includes a competitive salary and exam bonus structure, mentoring programme and regular performance reviews.
Your future with Duncan & Toplis
We are committed to helping our people grow and develop both professionally and personally. In addition to the formal professional qualification, we host a range of lectures and technical updates for all our team members to attend. All trainees are enrolled onto our Management Development programme so at the end of the three-year training contract, they not only have the professional qualification and abilities to flourish, but also the management skills to take their careers to the next level.
Our focus is to ensure we are a first choice employer, with a commitment to effective employee engagement and communication. By creating a positive working environment, we empower and support our team to be the best they can be – after all, that’s why our clients continually choose to work with us!
