Our congratulations go to the Bailey Group Chartered Accountants, in particular the team that work in property on behalf of the Less Tax 4 Landlords clients, who are celebrating after scooping their first real estate and property award.

BUILD 2020 – Real Estate & Property Awards, is a flagship award programme where those nominating are BUILD magazines’ subscribers, online visitors, social media followers and clients.

As the awards are voted for by those who use the services, it really does showcase the hardworking firms and individuals that have proven their excellence and tenacity in making property dreams come true.


The category for ‘Best Specialist Property Tax Accountants 2020 – UK’ had tough competition, however, the Bailey Group – which originally started as a single practice in Peterlee – beat off the stiff competition to take the crown. It is not surprising then to discover that their client base has grown by more than 20% in the past 12 months alone.

Today the Bailey Group are one of the largest independent accountancy practices in the North East, having expanded their practices to Redcar, Sedgefield, Billingham, Gateshead, Consett, Ilkley, Oldham, Scunthorpe and St Albans and have over 100 team members.

Less than 18 months ago the Bailey group won the North East Accountancy Awards – Medium Practice of the Year 2019

Chris Bailey, CEO of Bailey Group Chartered Accountants said: “We are delighted to receive this award, we have worked really hard over the past couple of years to grow the group and it’s fantastic to receive even more recognition. This award is a testament to the hard work our staff have put in over the past year especially during the current climate. We work tirelessly to help clients grow and evolve, and we look forward to helping our clients for years to come.”

During the Coronavirus pandemic, Chris has helped hundreds of clients navigate their way through all the support measures announced by the Chancellor, even providing weekly COVID 19 video updates – all of which can be found on our blog page here.
