More Than Just Accounts

  • Where Your Business Counts

Founded in 1998, Carnegie Knox is a well-established and independent firm of accountants based in Aberdeen. Established initially to serve contractors working in the Oil & Gas industry our roots are firmly laid in serving accountancy needs of businesses and individuals in the local community.

Around 93% of businesses in Aberdeen are owner managed and they contribute over £11.4bn to the local economy. With the downturn in the fortunes of the Oil and Gas industry in Aberdeen many of our contractor clients have started their own businesses and have turned to us to provide a full range of accountancy and business services to meet their individual requirements. We offer proactive advice to help owner managed businesses to plan ahead and to be structured in the best way possible whilst ensuring compliance with accounting, employment and taxation legislation.

Our services and business advice are wide ranging and include assistance with setting up your company, regulatory reporting, management accounts, tax and business relief advice as well as advice for expatriates. Whether you are embarking on your first business venture or a long standing business owner, we believe that our fresh approach to working with clients will appeal to you.

We Offer Guidance & Support For All Aspects Of Your Business

With our commitment to a clear and transparent working relationship, we offer a bespoke upfront pricing strategy for owner managed businesses and a fixed fee monthly payment schedule for Limited Company Contractors. That way there are no nasty surprises or escalating costs to worry about.

Because every business is unique, we know it’s important to have access to financial advice that is properly tailored. We take the time to speak with you face to face and establish a thorough understanding of your company requirements and long-term goals. We will then review all your accounts and records and use our technical skills to recommend the best approach.

If you are looking for exceptional service, high quality accounting, tax and business solutions and a fresh approach then come and talk to us.


“I have been with “Carnegie Knox” for more than three years now (started under different name), which has been the most smooth and hassle-free period of my trade years. My dedicated accountant has been always pro-active, friendly and up to dated with current regulations. She, along with her colleagues behind the scene, has always given me the best advice to make the most of my business while ensuring compliance with rules and regulations. I feel my business account being looked after very well. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.”

“Carnegie Knox came recommended to me from a reliable source.  So, I made arrangements to meet with Alan and members of his team.  I was pleasantly surprised at our initial meeting.  The approach was friendly and relaxed, but they very quickly had a handle on my exact business needs.  Although it is early days in our relationship, I feel confident and reassured that my personal accounting service requirements will be well taken care of.”
