About us

Bates Weston is one of Derby’s leading firms of business advisors and chartered accountants.

The firm provides services to a wide range of clients from corporate groups and owner managed businesses, to the charities sector and private individuals, regardless of the size of their business or personal wealth.

Our aim is to help our clients achieve their long term personal and commercial goals by providing one balanced, central source of advice. In-house professionals offer a complete range of services including: accountancy and audit services; tax planning; corporate finance; insolvency services; IT consultancy; investment planning; pension and investment services; HR consultancy and outsourcing of bookkeeping, payroll and management accounts.

We are based in the centre of Derby with 10 partners and 70 staff and we have one of the largest and most successful accountancy training programmes in the region.

Our history can be traced back to the 1920’s when Arthur Clarke & Co was established in Green Lane. After a series of mergers Arthur Clarke & Co became Bates Foston and came together with R J Weston in 1993 to form the Bates Weston we see today. The firm takes an active part in the commercial community, being members of the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire & Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce, Marketing Derby, Network Derby and the Burton and District Chamber of Commerce.
