Who We Are

Antony fawbert

Antony Fawbert started working for the company in 1991. He has been a partner of the firm since 1997 and is now the Managing Director.

I am a Chartered Accountant and also a Financial Planner and Probate Practitioner which enables me to give a truly "one- stop-shop" financial service for businesses and individuals. We can help all kinds of clients using all manner of record keeping from pen and paper through to the latest hosted and cloud accounting services with the advent of the HMRC "Making Tax Digital" initiative. We provide not only traditional compliance services such as accounts preparation, tax advice, payroll and VAT but can provide a fully-outsourced finance department whether you require simple book-keeping assistance or need a more involved "virtual finance director" together with full business and personal financial planning. I have 9 staff who assist me with the day to day tasks which enables me to be free to speak with clients as a proactive business adviser and partner and assist them with their financial needs and aspirations be it starting a business, growing it, or preparing for sale and retirement. I also advise former business owners through retirement, with their Wills, Power of Attorney, Trust and IHT planning.

Alexandra Fawbert is a Co-Director of the company.

My name is Alexandra Fawbert and I ensure our clients get the best and most efficient service from us. I am the Practice Manager and I also manage our compliance as a practice. I specialize in supporting all of our clients with Making Tax Digital. I manage our online secure portal and can help clients access their documentation securely. I support our business clients with setting up and migrating to digital accounting services and software. I offer our clients training and support for digital accounting and help clients to manage and maintain their digital account securely online. I also offer a ‘guardian angel’ digital bookkeeping service for clients who want an expert on hand to monitor their accounts for accuracy each month or a fully outsourced digital bookkeeping service with VAT and payroll. I am a Quickbooks Pro Adviser with our company.

Our History - Seventy years of service.

We are proud of our long history serving business-owners and their families in Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire.

Our firm was established as John A. Roberts & Co. by John Arthur Roberts in 1947. We have have seen some exciting changes this year, moving to new premises, with new technologies. Following the move, the firm was rebranded in 2017 to Fawbert Adams Limited following the retirement of the partners and brothers, John and Tom Roberts, sons of John Roberts senior; and following the retirement of Ian Hayes, also a long-serving partner in the firm.

John A. Roberts & Co was a family firm and Fawbert Adams is still a family firm today, still looking after our clients, their families and their businesses across the generations.
