EQ Accountants


EQ Accountants

EQ Accountants LLP employ over 100 staff, including 15 Partners.

With offices in Cupar, Dundee, Forfar and Glenrothes, the firm is renowned for its professional and pro-active service, consistently exceeding clients’ expectations.

Providing much more than core accounting services and compliance work, EQ’s growing team has developed an abundance of skills, positioning the firm as one of the leading Scottish providers of services in a number of specialist areas, from agriculture and construction to healthcare and leisure.

However, EQ’s workforce are not just accountants. They are also business advisers, helping clients reach their commercial goals. Their relationship with major banks, law firms and surveyors, both locally and nationally, ensure that the wheels of commerce run smoothly for their clients.

Of course, like any successful organisation, people are key at EQ. By providing a vibrant and stimulating environment within which to thrive and excel, EQ consistently attracts the brightest and the best.

I have been working with EQ since 2008, initially on an ad-hoc basis but now on a strategic, ongoing level.

A diverse range of coverage has been achieved over the years, from regional, local and national newspaper articles and online pieces in Scottish business bulletins, to exposure showcasing EQ’s expertise in the agricultural press and other sectors.

Everything from the arrival of new graduates and Partners to the firm’s merger with a Fife practice have been publicised, not forgetting the personal achievements of EQ’s growing workforce (they’re a sporty lot, and great fundraisers!)

What they’ve said…

David Cameron, Managing Partner commented, “Claire is now an important member of our team, and her contribution to raising the profile of EQ over a number of years has been tremendous. In recent times we have expanded by 50% through the merger we completed in 2015, and promoting the EQ brand and our areas of expertise within new geographic territory has been a priority. Claire has had, and will continue to have, a pivotal role in this respect.”
