Our Story

grgrGatley Read was established in December 1987 when David Read joined Ian Gatley in practice. The firm has always been based in Oldham originally in Church Terrace in the town centre then Union Street and Bleasby Street and now to its present location on Salmon Fields Business Village. We are proud that Gatley Read reached its 25th anniversary in 2012.

From its humble beginnings the firm has grown significantly over the years to its current size occupying prestigious modern offices in Royton, Oldham. We believe that this growth has been made possible as a direct result of the service we offer to clients and as a result the majority of our work comes from existing client recommendations, bank and business contacts.

In order to ensure that we could provide the best service to our clients we decided, at an early stage, to train all our staff to a high standard and became registered as a training office for Chartered Accountants.  Over the years we have successfully trained a number of Chartered Accountants including Caroline Greenwood and Vicky Castle, who are now also partners in the practice.

As a training office we are subject to regulation by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). . Such regulation ensures that clients can be assured that we are up to date in all areas of accounts and taxation law and are able to provide them with what we consider to be best advice in relation to any aspect of running their business.

Although the firm has grown over the years, which has enabled us to give a better level of service to all our clients, we pride ourselves in the fact that we still maintain our small firm focus and consider ourselves approachable and friendly people to do business with.

We are also part of the ICAEW Business Advisory Service where the first meeting with any potential new client is free.
