About Us

Switch Accountants is a leading accountancy practice with offices in Newcastle, Durham and Teesside, plus a thriving Online Accounting solution to support businesses both local to our offices and throughout the UK.

As you’d expect from an accountancy firm, we can take care of all of your accounting needs and ensure that you pay as little tax as legally possible.

But we do so much more than this…

First and foremost, we’re not just bean counters, but approachable business experts with broad, real-world business experience. We’re positive, speak in plain English and believe that we should help you, not belittle or baffle you.

Our whole practice is based around always putting you and your needs first. We are here to help you all year round, not just once a year. We’re always available to answer any questions or advise on any topics via telephone, e-mails or meetings throughout the year. This isn’t limited to just your accounts or tax affairs but a full range business topics.

Crucially, we take a genuinely practical, hands-on approach to helping your business – be that to overcome business problems, to help take your business to the next level or simply being an impartial sounding board.

The video below explains more about our practice and how we help businesses like yours.


Our Senior Partner

Clare Thompson is our Senior Partner and in addition to practice leadership she works directly with clients to provide both accountancy and business development services.

Clare is something of a rarity in the accountancy world, as in addition to her time in practice as a senior accountant, she has spent over a decade in the private sector running successful businesses.

This means that Clare knows what it is like to run a multi-million pounds business and employ dozens of people in the real world.

As a result, Clare and her talented team can combine professional experience and chartered accountancy qualifications with real world, practical business experience, providing invaluable support to you and your business on all aspects of your business.

Academically, Clare is a Chartered Management Accountant holding the prestigious ACMA, CGMA qualification and two degrees, a BA (Hons) in Finance and an LLB (Hons) in Law, from the University of Newcastle.

In addition, Clare is a noted business author and keynote speaker, and has published pioneering business research with Durham University.
