About Us

Established in 1947, Lucraft Hodgson & Dawes is a medium sized accountancy practice based in Brighton and Rustington. The team has a wealth of experience in growing businesses and offering clients sound professional advice. Over the years we have significantly increased our client base by offering a high level of expertise and experience. Lucraft Hodgson & Dawes is headed up by its three partners; Guy Butterworth, Adam Hickie & Rob Bothwell and they are ably supported by an experienced team.

Lucraft Hodgson & Dawes has an innovative, commercial, open minded and flexible approach. This enables our clients to feel reassured that their personal and business affairs are being looked after whilst being completely accessible. One way we do this is by not just working alongside you but as part of your team.

We offer a comprehensive range of services, covering Accountancy & Bookkeeping, Audit, Personal & Business Taxation, VAT, Payroll, Company Secretarial, and Business Plans & Consultancy.

Our clients range from start-ups and small companies through to medium and large enterprises with dozens of staff and multiple locations. What they all have in common is that they have an accountant who can help them run their businesses effectively whilst reducing unnecessary tax.

Clients have their own client manager who will manage their affairs on a day to day basis and bring in other members of the team as and when necessary. This results in the understanding of your personal and business needs by more than just one member of the team. Additionally, internally all client work is reviewed by the respective partner.

We believe in maintaining close and regular contact with our clients by guiding them through the accounts and financial aspects of their business in a straightforward manner.

Our partners have vast experience in many areas of taxation, finance, accountancy and business advice over a wide range of businesses, from corporate clients and property investors, to individuals and smaller companies across all market sectors.

Apart from the more general accountancy services we can also assist you with business development and specialist tax services. Clients prefer us because our passion shines through in everything that we do. We seek creative and innovative ways to reduce lead times, debtor days, enhance information transfer processes, reduce costs and strive for operational efficiency.
