How it started

Jupp Castle burst into life in 1996 so we have a bit of history.  The original partners were bought out by Heather in 2000 and the business continued with just one director until 2018 when Jo, who was already part of the management team, became a director.  We have been based in Fleet, Crondall and now Hartley Wintney but have clients as far away as Australia.

Nobody really wants to hear chapter and verse about us so we will leave it there, but if you want to find out more please contact us.

Our mission

We understand that your business is your passion.  No doubt it was created to give you and those around you a better future, and we want nothing more than to see you succeed by fulfilling your personal and professional ambitions.

Working together, we establish your goals.  What do you want from your business, now and in the future?  Do you want to develop it for a possible sale in the future?  Do you want to keep it in the family?  Or maybe you just want to generate a healthy cash sum so that you can retire.  Those who write down their goals are much more likely to achieve them; it gives you direction and purpose.

At Jupp Castle we help you put a plan in place to reach those goals.  This plan isn’t set in stone because business and life aren’t always predictable, so we encourage you to be honest, open and flexible in your approach.  By revisiting your plan and measuring your progress on a regular basis you will see what is and isn’t working and can adapt accordingly.

Running a business can be lonely and stressful but if you have good advisers who support you throughout your journey it will make all the difference.  That’s why it’s time to talk to Jupp Castle.

We believe that people buy people and we are therefore very careful how we choose our team. It is paramount that they understand the concept of excellent client relationships and service and this of course takes a particular type of personality.

Our team is what makes Jupp Castle and we constantly receive positive feedback on how much we have helped a business, solved a problem or relieved anxiety on a difficult financial or accounting issue.

As you would expect everyone is extremely knowledgeable in their field with a desire to make the lives of clients as easy as possible.
