Who We Are

A J Carter & Co was founded in 1981 by Andrew Carter who set up the practice in Witney as he was keen to be involved in the local community. Over the years the business expanded and Nicholas Williams joined the practice in 1984. Mark Gyde joined in 1991, becoming a partner in April 1994.

Over the last few years the practice has grown steadily and the client base, although principally centred around West Oxfordshire, is spread across the whole country. We act for clients from all walks of life including personal tax work, small and large family businesses (both partnerships and corporate) and charities. We are keen to provide a friendly and personal service to all of our clients.


Andrew Carter continues his involvement within the town and local community; he served as town Mayor for a two year period and is currently actively involved with the Rotary Club of Witney. Andrew has largely been responsible for establishing the practice as one of the leading firms within the town. As well as looking after a portfolio of general practice clients, Andrew is responsible for Trust accounting and related tax matters. To email Andrew - click here.

Our Managers

In addition to the four partners we employ two managers, both of whom are qualified accountants. We have found that by only employing qualified staff we are able to offer a high quality and reliable service. Our managers have a good working relationship with clients and are able to handle many of the queries raised by clients.
