About Us

The bull ring at night in birmingham city center

As an accountant in Birmingham, Quest Chartered Management Consultants delivers all that you would expect from an accountancy firm servicing small to medium-sized companies and self-employed individuals in the West Midlands. We cover the basic, immutable laws of finance that every company must follow in order to survive;

  • Accounts preparation
  • Corporate tax
  • Payroll management
  • Bookkeeping
  • Completion of VAT returns
  • Completion of self-assessment tax returns

Naturally these are par for the course for any accountant that you may take on. It certainly pays to have a qualified professional address these aspects of business, as mistakes can prove to be very costly later on.

At Quest we are proud that we always strive to go the extra mile. Our goals are your goals: we want your business to expand and do well. We want you to be secure in your growth and we want your business to have a long and healthy life. This is why we also offer the following services;

  • Business planning
  • Preparing cashflow and other forecasts
  • Consultancy services aimed at expanding your business

We don’t believe that an accountant is simply someone that you send your paperwork to. We believe that an accountant should be someone you can call when you have questions; someone who you can meet with when you need some advice or just feel that you need to talk things through.

We like to think that we are a different type of accountant. We invite you to find out for yourself what makes us different and what we can do for your business.

Nick Bonnaud, Director

Quest was established in 2003 by chartered management accountant Nick Bonnaud.

Originally hailing from the West Midlands, Nick graduated as a Bachelor of Arts with Honours from the University of Liverpool. He then trained and qualified as a chartered management accountant, not in practice but in industry; as such he sees the world from a business point of view and understands commercial realities. He is an associate of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

Though he worked for eight years in the world of blue-chip corporations such as National Grid (at the time trading as Transco) and IBM, Nick found that working for faceless corporations ignited no real passion. What he did discover was that the real passion came from helping “the little guy” – smaller businesses without the set-in-stone stability of a national or international giant – where the help he provided could really make a difference to individuals.

Since its foundation almost a decade ago, Quest has continued to work with small and medium-sized organizations, making a real difference to those companies where everything really does count.
