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. Our staff share their favourite quote with you – this can give you an idea about what mantra they live by.

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 2018, 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. Favourite quote: “It isn’t enough to think outside of the box, it’s time to start acting outside of the box” Tim Ferriss

We Like To



    Our work requires smart people to not only keep up with industry developments – ensuring our customers stay within the legislation – but to also embrace change; new technologies, improved processes, innovative solutions.



    We are excited about providing leading online accountancy services that empower customers to drive their businesses forward. We know that the more knowledge we can impart allows you to make better decisions which grow your business much quicker.



    We encourage our team to openly discuss ideas and give them the independence to explore them fully. This allows us to grow as a business meaning we’re better placed to help you even more.
