Our History

David Owen & Co has had a presence in Wiltshire for over 130 years. David Owen, its founder, formed his accountancy business in the 1880s with the aim of providing:

“Services of the highest quality and value in a professional, friendly and responsive manner.”

The firm’s reputation quickly spread, and soon the firm had a wealth of clients in Bristol, London and Bath.

Today the firm has 5 partners and over 30 staff, and operates from offices in Devizes and Marlborough. With a varied client portfolio and an innovative approach, we continue to be one of the leading independent practices in the region. 

Staying true to our founder’s philosophy is important to us, but we also believe in the continued growth and development of the firm. To this end, we invest heavily in our people in order to harness new skills that will benefit our clients. In addition, we have embraced IT and technology as ways of delivering greater efficiencies, so that we can save our clients valuable time and resources.
