About Us

Focusing on working alongside Small & Medium Businesses .

From the beginning....

Account Ants was founded in 2013 by Catherine Jordan and operates as a sister company to Oakvale Business Services. We are primarily based in Darlington, however liaise with clients surrounding the areas of County Durham, North, South and West Yorkshire, the North West and also North East of England.

Catherine's knowledge of accountancy was gained through a career in Barclays Bank, providing her with the expertise to advise and guide clients to correct working financial practices. This later resulted in the departure of her career within the Small Business Sector, to her setting up her very own business offering Accountancy Services.

Account Ants focuses on working alongside Small & Medium Businesses and Catherine and her team pride themselves in providing all-round, professional business services and building successful relationships with their clients. We felt that there was nobody in the market place

who could deal with small clients in an understanding and friendly way. Since the start of the Account-ants, it has grown from strength to strength, expanding into a full-time Accountancy occupation.
