Rawlinson & Hunter is a leading London-based firm of Chartered Accountants established in 1933, and through its international grouping now operates from 12 offices in 10 countries with over 50 partners and directors and over 500 staff.


The Firm offers taxation, accountancy and advisory services to individuals, families and businesses. Rawlinson & Hunter is also the largest firm of Chartered Tax Advisers in the UK.


The Firm specialises in particular in looking after the affairs of high net worth individuals and their families. Typically, we will look after their UK tax affairs, carefully handling their relationship with HMRC. We will provide accounting, tax and (where invited) trustee services for their wealth holding structures and charities, both from London and, where appropriate, through the Firm’s international offices. We can provide sophisticated wealth reporting services through our industry-leading software and offer reporting and support services to their family offices.


We have developed and expanded our suite of services to support our private clients and their families throughout their lives. Our partners and directors are all specialists who lead the advice to our clients, supported by staff who are amongst the best in the profession. We aim to give clear and direct advice without ‘fence-sitting’.
