About Alchemy Accountancy

Who we are

Alchemy is a Chartered Certified Accountancy practice based in the North West of England.


Drawing on years of experience, we are well placed to assist small business owners throughout the UK with all aspects of their business and personal finances. Our service ranges from historic reporting and tax compliance to forecasting and strategic planning.


We believe that every business, and business owner, is unique. We therefore make it our mission to get to know you, your business, and your goals and aspirations. We partner with you to provide high quality advice that is relevant to your individual circumstances and moves you towards your goal.


As part of your accountancy package we will provide access to an award winning online bookkeeping platform and you will gain a real-time view of your business finances, available 24/7 from anywhere in the world. No more spreadsheets. Whether you are setting out in business alone, taking on a contract for the first time, or are looking for a change of accountant, our solution will be perfect for you.


Alchemy is led by Craig McCall.


Craig is a Fellow of the Association for Chartered Certified Accountants and set up Alchemy Accountancy in 2018 after spending 10 years working in various firms across the North West. Craig realised that – much like his clients – he wanted to work for himself and saw an opportunity to provide a more personalised and increased range of services to his clients.


Craig has spent his career working with small businesses all over the UK, making use of cloud accounting technologies to assist clients remotely, giving individuals timely and accurate information about their accounts wherever they are in the world. Craig is always exploring new ways to make the accounting experience more efficient and simple for his clients whilst providing them insight to their business finances, facilitating better decision making to maximise profits and minimise taxes.


Craig has been involved in the full range of accounting-related work in his career, from filing accounts and tax returns to financial forecasting and strategic planning; he has worked with clients in various sectors, but has specialised in service businesses across IT, marketing, financial services and health care.


Alchemy is supported by Andrew Nixon and Alan Williams who have a combined 38 years experience in the contractor accountancy sector prior to the sale of their business in 2014. Andrew and Alan are founding investors in Alchemy. Of Craig’s experience Andrew says: ‘Craig has an exceptional ability to understand the needs of his clients, the businesses that they operate, and to deliver solutions that help them meet their goals.’ Having worked with Craig for 7 years Alan says: ‘We have invested in the launch of Alchemy because we see an opportunity, through Craig, to challenge the complacency that exists in big firms.’

Our Values

We are guided by our values throughout our business and pursue an experience for our clients where these can be seen.



We seek to create value for all of our clients, earning their loyalty to our brand. This means acting with integrity and in the best interest of our clients at all times.


We work with some of the best financial technology available, and continually seek new ways to simplify the accounting process for our clients.


We try to avoid accountancy jargon, but where it is needed, we will explain in it full.


When we say we will do something, we do it. If there is something that we can’t do, we’ll tell you rather than compromising on quality.
