About Redstone Accounting Services

More Than Just Accountants!

Let us be the one stop shop for all your financial needs!

Redstone, is the trading name of Redstone Accountancy Services Limited, an accountancy practice also offering business and tax advice founded by the managing director Craig Watts. Redstone is located in the heart of Media City in Manchester.

Craig started his accountancy career, when he Joined a medium sized practice in the centre of Manchester as a trainee account. During this time Craig progressed quickly to semi-senior accountant, whilst also becoming AAT qualified and then moving on to the ACCA qualification.

Craig, spent 3 years before being handpicked by one of the Partners to join his newly created practice as one of the founding members. Craig continued his progression through the ranks and up to a senior management position, which he held from 2013. During this time, Craig played a vital role in the practice becoming an established practice with over 50 employees spread over their Manchester and London offices.

During his career Craig has serviced a wide range of clients from diverse industries including property investment and development, NHS and private dentistry, sports and leisure providers, owner managed business and a number of high net worth individuals.

From the development of close working relationships with his clients and their businesses he established that business owners need and want more from their accountant. After gaining such a wide knowledge of different industries and in all aspects of accountancy and taxation, Craig decided it was time to take the plunge and set up his own accountancy practice to provide accounting and business advice, from this Redstone was born.

Many business owners see accountants as an evil necessity. And whilst it is true that all businesses need accountants, successful businesses need great accountants!!

Here at Redstone, we want to change this perception by moving away from the stereotype of a traditional accountant. Our firm is Modern, friendly and forward thinking, whilst still maintaining the professional standards you would expect from an accountancy practice.
