Coronavirus (COVID-19): Service update and our ongoing assistance for affected clients

The health and safety of our colleagues and our clients is our highest priority. In line with Government advice on social distancing we have transitioned to working from home arrangements. We are all still contactable by phone and email with a focus on working hard to help all our affected clients. 

Whilst our teams are operating remotely we have provision in place to ensure the services you need are not affected. In fact we are here to help our clients by offering advice on financial options during the pandemic and with assistance accessing the Government incentives.

We are reviewing the ever changing Government guidance to ensure that our clients get the very best advice and support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest information is available here in our Coronavirus information hub.

All face to face meetings will be rearranged to take place by video/telephone conference and we request clients do not attend the office during this time.

We’d like to thankyou for your understanding and for keeping you and our team safe. Our physical office doors will be open again as soon as possible, until then our team looks forward to continuing to provide our excellent NR Barton service remotely. 


If you want to work with a leading independent provider of accounting, taxation, and business advisory services with over 40 partners and staff advising clients in Wigan, Lancashire and across the North West you’ve come to the right place.
