Meet the Team
Your Business Partners
We’re here to get to know you and your business just as much as saving you tax and maximising your profit. We see ourselves as much more than just accountants.
Our accountancy business in Chorley is built on big ideas. We learn from others, adapt our practices and introduce new ones.
We take our culture and goals seriously, continuously improving on the past.
We filed our first set of customer accounts in 2010, and today support growing businesses with all wild-and-wonderful challenges standing in the way of their own vision.
Michael Godsmark Managing Director
I created Woodville in 2010. Starting locally in Chorley, I grew my network of customers around the North West using flyers and word-of-mouth – techniques from my previous life as a DJ.
Now in 2020, I believe in business improvement. My office bookshelf grows each month with business and tax books. I practice what I preach, I continue to develop my business in the same way that Woodville supports businesses to grow and realise their potential.
You may have seen I’ve even started my own business podcast!

The accountancy industry has significantly changed even just in the time I have started, with everything now online it’s great to have such an agile working environment. This has allowed me to go full time and balance having young children around work.
