Payne & Scott Ltd started as David Payne Accountants began trading almost 50 years ago and operates from just outside Tenterden in Kent. From a sole ICAEW practitioner beginning we are now a family owner-managed company and have a further two ACCA chartered accountants. 


With the vital assistance of a number of carefully selected support staff we offer a broad range of accountancy services to a very diverse range of businesses. Our clients range in size from the very small sole trader all the way across to those with multiple premises or more complex overseas arrangements.


We pride ourselves on not only providing a comprehensive range of services, but also in a more flexible and human style than people have come to anticipate from our profession. You won’t be made to feel like just another line on the client list and many of our clients comment on how we get everything done, but in a less intimidating manner.


David Payne Accountants is the trading name of Payne & Scott Ltd. (Co no 00279430) We are governed by the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales), but two of our professionals have practicing certificates registered with the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants)
