Who are we?

We’ve been in business as Chartered Accountants for almost 100 years!

We thrive when our clients achieve their personal and financial goals. That’s why we invest time in building long term relationships.

Our History of Accounting

In 2013, two of Bolton’s most respected accountancy practices, Bentleys Chartered Accountants and Donnellys Chartered Accountants, merged to present clients with an even greater depth and breadth of expertise and services. This pooling of talent and experience has delivered many benefits to both existing and new clients in Bolton, Bury, North Manchester and Lancashire.

The practice is now in a new and exciting era delivering more services to support our clients. However, our core values of professionalism, value for money and personal service remain at the heart of everything that we do.
