Gower Accountants Leicester offer expert Accounts Preparation for Motor Traders, Car Mechanics, Car Body Workshops, Independent Specialists and Retail Parts Traders. We have been providing accounts services for clients in the Motor Trade for many years and we are well versed in the specifics relating to optimising your financial strategy.

The Motor Trade is a busy trade and as the owner you never seems to find enough hours in the day. Customer satisfaction is vital to your trade and a returning customer is a happy customer, our accountants for the motor trade in Leicester understand that this will always be your core focus and rightly so.
