Where it all began .... 

During his 22-year career in Accountancy practice, our co-founder, Steve Timmis, has seen every side of the industry, developing a unique insight from the perspective of both the accountant and the client.

He spent years intently listening to clients, getting under the skin of their businesses and identifying their needs.

It was this in-depth understanding, along with his passion for delivering a genuine client-focused service, which drove him to create Sempar in 2016.

The sports coach on the sideline, cheering you on. The best friend with you through thick and thin. The confidence boost you need to get you over the line. That's Sempar.

We're with you celebrating your good times, we've got your back when the going gets tough, we're on this journey together.

Challenging you to achieve far beyond what you thought possible, we get under the skin of your “why".

A client once told us “I want to make enough money to go to space". We're helping him get there.
