Plan | Measure | Build



When our founder Jordan set up For The Trade, his mission was simple. Empower the tradesmen of the North to take ownership of their own future. With a no-bollocks approach to operations, that does away with the jargon and waffle that normal accountancy is known for, and an around-the-clock, salt of the earth, honest way of working. We’ll give you the respect you deserve and the support you need, so you can meet the weekend head-on with a smile and a pint.

we do it proper

Getting your accounts set up, doing them right, sorting out your tax – boom, job done.


We’ve got the answers and we don’t bury them in bullshit and waffle. 

No ghosting

We don’t take the piss. We’ll be there when you need us, by phone or WhatsApp. 

Forward thinking

We’ll put your success first. We’re not here to just make a few bob. It’s about you.

“We’ve been working with Jordan for a few years now and only have good things to say!”
