Over the last 40 years, RBS Chartered Accountants has worked with firms of many shapes and sizes, and from a wide range of industries. While we are open to working with clients from every conceivable business type, our main fields of expertise are accountancy and related services surrounding, construction, property, retail, service sectors, contractors, contracting and landlords.

Construction and property businesses

  • Overcome any accounting problems you may have

  • Help you prepare and submit monthly tax returns
  • Ensure your contracts are legal
