As long-standing Eastbourne Accountants we are very proud of our strong relationship with the town and its surrounding areas.

Plummer Parsons is not the only Eastbourne accountants but our Eastbourne office can trace its history back to 1900 when Hugh Limebeer and  James Alexander Tinling commenced practice as Limebeer, Thomson & Tinling.  The firm changed its name many times over the first part of the 20th century, finally settling on Plummer Parsons in the 1960s.

Nowadays the Eastbourne office has been joined by offices in Hailsham (1990) and Brighton (2007) but remains the largest of the 3 offices with some 50 staff members.
