Specialist advisors to members of the Bar

As one of the leading firms of chartered accountants for barristers in the south west and across the country, our dedicated partner-led team of accountants and taxation advisers is able to provide practical, friendly and personal advice to barristers in a very efficient, cost effective and timely manner.

Milsted Langdon is one of the largest independent firms of chartered accountants in the South West, with offices in BristolTauntonYeovilBath and London. As an independent firm, we are able to avoid the costly trappings of a national network, yet through our rapid success we have built up an experienced team of specialists and expert advisers in all the key areas expected of a large modern commercial firm of business advisers.

One area where we offer particular expertise is advising barristers interested in new business structures.

From January 2015, the Bar Standards Board (BSB) began accepting applications from barristers wishing to set up new BSB-regulated businesses, or entities, offering reserved legal activities, including appearing in court as an advocate.

The changes mean that barristers will be able to form companies, partnerships or limited liability partnerships, with the BSB due to start authorising applications in April 2015.

You may be considering, or be interested in exploring, options for a more flexible organisational structure and we can provide expert advice on different tax and other issues involved in operating as a partnership, LLP or company.
