Whitings LLP

Platinum Partner

Whitings LLP is proud to support the Ely SME Business Awards

Among the most familiar and respected names in the area’s business circles, Whitings was founded in 1928 by Walter Whiting, who spotted an opportunity to meet the demands of the area’s thriving farming communities. Over 90 years on and this independent firm of chartered accountants is still firmly rooted in East Anglia, with 12 partners and nearly 150 staff in 8 key market town locations.

“We’re delighted to be involved with the inaugural Ely SME Business Awards,” says partner Ian Piper. “Everyone is working hard to bounce back after COVID. Across Fenland we have some long-established businesses plus a raft of exciting entrepreneurial start-ups and they are meeting these new challenges as they arise.”

Barbara Nicholas, private client tax partner at the Ely office, specialises in looking after the firm’s personal tax and trust clients.  “We offer both compliance and tax planning services. We are not just form fillers – always looking to identity tax planning opportunities that can make all the difference to spendable income levels as a standard part of our service.”

The Ely office of Whitings is based in modern offices, in the thriving Angel Drove business park. Barbara, Ian, Amanda Newman and Nick Edgley head up a team of around 30 professional and administrative staff, who look after approximately 1,000 business, personal and not for profit clients.
