The practice was established by Bruce Atkinson in the Old Steine in Brighton. One of Bruce's first clients was the old Hippodrome in Middle Street.
Atkinsons was established in 1962 and has grown significantly over this time.
Throughout the firm's history our core values of trust, integrity, independence and professionalism have been the bedrock on which our practice operates.
We are proud to be able to offer a wide range of services equal to that of large national practices, but with the personal care and commitment of the smaller partnership. Our informal motto is 'large firm experience, small firm cost'.
The practice expanded by opening a second office in Palmeira Square, Hove.
The practice expanded with the acquisition of a firm in New Malden, Surrey, which offered accounting services to local firms in the area and further afield in Greater London.
Alex Atkinson joins the firm, the first of three siblings to enter the practice.
The firm embraced the use of cloud accounting software and became Gold level partners of Xero and Receipt Bank.
