Scholes, Chartered Accountants began life in 1967 as a small family accountancy firm.
Based in Kirkwall, the firm has grown significantly in recent years under the leadership of Karen Scholes and Ivan Houston.
Our employees come from a variety of backgrounds. Some have worked with us for many years, others have joined more recently as experienced hires or as accountancy trainees straight out of school or college. Many have specific industry experience or specialist technical qualifications. All are friendly, hard working, and highly skilled.
Our clients represent all sectors of the local economy, including business, the voluntary sector, high earners and low earners. We are pleased to serve such a wide range of clients and though a majority of them are Orkney based, we also work with some who are located further afield.
Our services cover all of the areas you would expect from an accountant, and we tailor those services to the specific needs of each client.
We offer each client a totally bespoke service based on need, rather than following a ‘one size fits all’ approach. You are unique, we understand that and we will work with you to provide a solution designed especially for you and your business.
