About us

Getting to know Cottons

We’re a numbers-focused, business-savvy, human-first bunch with expertise in all accountancy-related issues. 

In 1983, John Cotton started Cotton & Co. as a small team in Daventry, Northamptonshire. Through both organic growth and key acquisitions, we’ve rapidly become one of the leading firms in the Midlands, more recently expanding into London. With over 100 members of staff across our five offices, we have plenty of expert knowledge, so we can give you valuable advice and guidance in all the areas you need.

Cottons home about

"They are knowledgeable and approachable"

I moved to Cottons about 5 years ago, on recommendation from my financial advisor, and I must say I have not regretted it. They are knowledgeable and approachable and are always able to guide me when I need them. They held my hand through the pandemic and I really feel that they understand my business and the challenges that were and still are faced.
