Scott Baillie BFP FCA

Managing Director & Founder

Scott qualified as a chartered accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2009. After qualifying, Scott made a decisive change and moved into industry, where he soon joined the board of directors of various companies.

In 2011, Scott began to focus on delivering accountancy and business consultancy services to small and medium sized businesses throughout London and the South East of England, and so formed Charter Consulting, rebranded to Professional Trust Group in 2019.

In 2019 Scott became a Fellow of the ICAEW, recognising his commitment and experience within the industry.

Scott specialises in advising business owners – and not just on accounting and tax matters. Together with Professional Trust Group, he also has other business interests, which, coupled with his experience in industry, allows Scott to understand the challenges that small business owners face and advise clients accordingly.
