About us

Who are we?
We’re Clay Shaw Thomas, accountants and financial planners, based in Bridgend, Cardiff.
Our history

Our firm was established over 70 years ago. Despite our age, we are a modern, family-run business, led by the same senior management team for the last 22 years.

Our practice relocated in March 2005 to purpose-built offices just off Junction 35 of the M4 and today we are proud to be recognised as one of the leading professional services and consultancy practices in South Wales.

What we stand for

We combine traditional values with a forward-thinking approach, to help our clients cope with the constantly changing demands of the modern business world.

We focus on the future rather than the past - starting where other firms finish.

Our advice is tailored.
Our knowledge is extensive.
Our solutions are practical.

Our mission
We aim to add considerable and measurable financial value to your business and life by:
  • Providing great value for money

  • Striving to achieve the highest professional standards
  • Valuing our people and clients as our greatest assets
  • Offering fixed fee arrangements, so the only surprises you’ll have are good ones
