Our Values

Our mission and vision is underpinned by our values. We believe that three core values encapsulate our approach and these align with our vision to support businesses. They are improve; support; belong. 

They do the profit first banking and they’re forward thinking and modern. They’ve helped me to get organised, and face up to my finances. Rivington Accounts are knowledgeable and have helped to educate me. They’re so much better than my last accountant in terms of communication and clarity, and just being able to get hold of them quite easily. They do save you time in the sense that they come up with systems that save you time.

Rivington Accounts has continuously provided a great service to us here at Gelston Manor. They are reliable and always happy to help no matter how big or small the query may be. We highly recommend them.

Rivington Accountants provide a very client focused, personal service. Always willing to go the extra mile and they have a great understanding of our business needs. Recommended.

In a recent customer satisfaction survey, we cited more regular meetings with Martin as a desirable improvement. Within a few days of submitting the survey one of Martin’s team was on the phone to ascertain the type of meetings and frequency of the meetings required and booked these in.

We also receive excellent payroll and other support from Martin’s colleagues as we grow the staff side of our business.


I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin and his team to anyone looking for professional, affordable accountancy services.

We receive a first class accountancy service from Rivington Accounts, who show a great attention to detail and strong customer service values.


All of the staff prove exceptionally willing to help whenever we have a query or an issue. Martin’s knowledge of accountancy and taxation is of invaluable help to us when required. My business has improved substantially with the support and advice received from Rivington Accounts and I have no hesitation in fully recommending their services.

Enrolling Rivington Accounts as our Accountants has been one of the best business decisions we have made.

We are now safe in the knowledge that our accountants are organised and up to date and Martin is always available should we have any queries or questions.

Martin and the team at Rivington have been instrumental in helping us improve our financial standards and professionalise our accounting processes. An example of this is the improvements we made to our credit control processes, they were formalised, bringing greater efficiency and reducing our monthly debtors balance from a five figure sum to a couple of hundred pounds. Beyond this Martin has also made a personal effort to understand our management structure and to really get to know Tom, James, and I. Friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to work with.



Martin Horton comes here every month and has a management meeting with us and he presents this amazing monthly reporting analysis, which kind of gives all the trends in this very easy, graphical kind of format of that you can use. It tells me exactly, at a glance, where I’m heading in for problems, which areas I need to focus on, in terms of marketing. It gives me forecasts of sales, against budgets, against revenue and profit margin. It tells me my break even point. It gives me all of this future forecasted profits. The everything… so many graphs. I never had anything like this, and it is absolutely brilliant that not only do I get this report, but he actually makes time to come out and actually go through it.


I just had my annual accounts back from Martin and it was sent with a very helpful little video, which just talked me through the accounts, whereas before you were just sent it in an envelope, and you were like, “What on Earth goes this mean?”. Then you had to wait for the accountant to get in touch and to make an appointment. You do worry because you look at some of these figures and you think, ” Oh my goodness. What on Earth does this mean? Is it good or is it bad?”. I think that having that little kind of video that accompany the accounts when it was sent to you straight away that you could watch and it literally went through page by page of what everything meant was just so good. I’ve never had that before from anybody, really.

“I worked with Martin for a number of years and always found him to be intellectually strong with an extremely good understanding of how to turn raw data into valuable business insight.

He has a huge amount of experience operating in complex environments and was extensively involved in historical reporting, financial planning and forecasting as well as business analysis and evaluation. His input across any of these areas has always been first class and would be of real benefit to any business.”

As a provider of letting and property management services to residential landlords, we set ourselves the highest of standards and our goal is to be one of the top letting agencies in Manchester. Our ethos is always to put the customer first and this is something I found from using your company.


Since using you for all my financial matters I really cannot thank you all enough as you have all contributed significantly to assisting me our of the financial difficulties my previous accountant/book keeper got me in. I now feel I have a much better understanding of my business and feel on track to achieving my financial goals. The service I receive is outstanding and I would have no hesitation to recommending you and your team to any prospective client.


I really feel you have gone above the call of duty of me, that in itself is excellent, but what is exceptional is the approach to your work as it’s very hard to find companies that put their clients before profit.
