Bio: Whittaker & Co was set up by, ex-WRAC and Royal Signals, Anna Cooperwhite to be specialist accountants to the security industry.

The company grew out of necessity. Anna’s husband John, left the armed forces after an 18 year career, which included service in the Coldstream Guards, the Welsh Guards, 7 Parachute Regiment and in the Gurkha regiment in Brunei.

John started a career as a security contractor in Iraq, and quickly found that the role was well paid; however, none of his colleagues knew what their tax responsibilities were. Anna started to assist John’s colleagues in completing their tax returns, and Whittaker & Co was born!

Whilst John remained working in Iraq for 9 years, Whittaker & Co client base grew from strength to strength as did our reputation for no-nonsense advice and our great customer service. Steph Davies joined Anna to manage clients working abroad and assisting them in being tax free.

Since 2004, Whittaker & Co has now grown in to a team of tax advisors, accountants and account managers.
