MIB stories – Seymour Taylor

Seymour Taylor is extremely proud to be celebrating its Centenary this year – 100 Years and Counting



From its humble beginnings in Frogmoor by Ernest J Seymour back in 1917 to where they are today they have seen many changes over the last 100 years. From PAYE being introduced in 1944 as a more efficient tax collection system, corporation tax launching in 1965, VAT being introduced in 1973 and last year’s vote to leave the European Union who knows what the next 100 years could bring!

It’s going to be an exciting year ahead for Seymour Taylor, who provide accountancy, tax and business services, and they have set their team a challenge. Supporting the local community has always been important to Seymour Taylor but this year more than ever they wanted to give that little bit extra. The plan is to deliver a minimum of 100 hours of Corporate Social Responsibility and to raise £10,000 for charity both locally and nationally by supporting different events. To date they have raised 24 per cent of their charity target which stands at £2,434 and there are lots of exciting charity events in the pipeline for the team: from skydiving to cycling and getting involved in the local Wycombe Race for Life. The company has already completed 84 hours of CSR working with local schools helping with career fairs and mock interviews and earlier this year worked with the Chiltern Rangers on an environmental project!

The company is also running an advertising campaign and competition on local buses in and around the Wycombe area. Members of the local community have a chance to win a prize of £100 for themselves and £100 for the local charity of their choice.

Simon Turner Managing Director of Seymour Taylor commented: “When we researched businesses who have been around for 100 years we noticed that it was those who continued to innovate and adapt to changing times that survived long term.

“We are delighted to be celebrating 100 years in business and are looking forward to the future and all the new opportunities it will bring.”
