About Us

Hi, we are Jon and Andrea.

We are the founders of Augment and we're passionate about helping construction and trade business owners meet their financial and personal goals.

Why the name Augment?
We chose our name for a reason. We believe that the very definition of augment captures our approach perfectly. We're not just another accounting firm churning out VAT/tax returns and accounts; we strive to enhance and amplify your success.

About Us

Why construction and trade businesses?

It's because we know we can make a huge positive impact. The fact it's a complicated and challenging industry makes it both interesting and highly rewarding for us. It feels great when we help our clients succeed!

Our mission when we founded Augment was to revolutionise how construction and trade businesses handle their finances. We know the common hurdles you encounter, from navigating the peaks and troughs nature of project work, juggling cash flow and tracking job specific costs, to handling variations and trying to make a profit at the end of it all.

Using our expertise and experience as chartered accountants we're able to help you overcome these hurdles and make it all worthwhile.
