We provide our clients with guidance and support through a friendly and personal service to ensure that you are successful in reaching your goals.  We like to develop good relationships, taking the time to learn about you and your business in order to tailor our service to your needs.  

We believe that our growth and success is linked to yours.  As such, the best way to help you grow is to become an intrinsic part of your business.  We look to work much more closely with you than traditional accountants.  By understanding your business and your needs, we can be proactive in our advice and quick to identify problems and responsive to opportunities.


Thank you for taking the time to visit the website of Ambient Accounting Ltd.  Let me first start by introducing myself to you.  My name is Andrew Barton FCA and I am the director of Ambient Accounting Ltd.  I hope that you will use our website to familiarise yourself with the services which we offer and hope that we can be able to work with you in the future.

We started Ambient Accounting Ltd in April 2018 not wanting to be just another firm of accountants.  We have been extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of businesses over the last 25 years.  From sole traders, working from their spare bedroom to companies turning over millions of pounds a year in offices throughout the UK.  I’ve gained an incredible amount of experience working with all these businesses and I’ve looked to take these experiences in forming Ambient Accounting Ltd.

One of the things which we have learned during this time is that every business and every business owner are different and need to be treated this way. They have different needs and requirements and therefore cannot be treated in the same way.

Our vision at Ambient Accounting is to build a lasting partnership between ourselves and our clients.  We do this by taking time to listen and understand your needs and requirements so that we can provide a tailored service for you to help you meet and exceed your goals.  

Our goal is providing clients with a proactive service whilst remaining friendly and professional.  With a young and dynamic outlook, we consider ourselves different than your traditional accountant.  We offer a business minded approach as opposed to an accountant’s perspective.  Having experience in running our own businesses in a number of different sectors, we appreciate what a business owner needs from their accountant. 

We take pride in being able to work with all types of businesses and helping your business grow provides us with the greatest satisfaction. 

If you are starting out on a new adventure, finding things are tough right now or you are feeling that you aren’t getting support from your own accountant, contact us to have a chat about how we can help.  You will see that our approach is different and that we can provide you with all the support you need.

Once we have established your needs, we can give you a guaranteed fully inclusive price.  This will give you peace of mind and no surprise bills.  Whenever you ask us to deliver additional services, we will agree the fee with you from the outset.

By working in this way, you’ll feel comfortable asking us for advice without worrying about the cost and we can deliver the service you deserve.


In April 2018, we opened our first office in Lowry Mill, Swinton.  Our first year saw unprecedented growth and due to the strong links we have to clients in Sale, in October 2019, we have opened an additional office on Washway Road in Sale.

Our office in Sale is our head office but we have accountants based in Sale and Swinton.  So if clients would prefer to meet at either office, there will always be friendly face there ready to meet them.
