Rachel Sestini


Sestini & Co

We are a private client-focused accountancy firm, specialising in cross-border private client tax planning including assisting business owners and entrepreneurs in optimising their earnings from their businesses.

A bit about me...

I'm a business owner, mum, private pilot and lapsed mathematician (largely non-practising these days).  I set up Sestini & Co in 2013 to provide a tax and accountancy option for private clients and business owners which delivers a personal service and is focused on them as individuals and helping them to achieve their goals in a measured way they understand.

I'm thrilled to say that the business has grown fast since 2013 and we now have a fantastic team at our offices in Paulton (near Wells) and we have expanded the group to include in-house pensions provision for business owners. Through our company Sestini & Co Pension Trustees Ltd, our goal is to make pensions more accessible and to demystify them as a flexible, tax-efficient savings tool within the clients' control. 

We're in the process of working on further expansion through two joint ventures - we'll keep you posted!

If you're an entrepreneur, have a growing business, work in a family firm, or have assets or work overseas, do get in touch and we'll be happy to run through your options in areas from tax planning to accounting and business growth.
