Welcome to Zest

The colourful accountancy firm here to support you and your business, all year round

As the friendly Xero cloud accountants in Newport, South Wales, we’re here to make your life easier. We don’t do jargon and we definitely don’t wear grey suits, but we do offer reliable, expert advice when you need it (forget the idea of an annual meeting; we’re with you all the way). We appreciate that running a business is hard work, but taking care of the books shouldn’t be. That’s where Zest steps in, looking after the figures and freeing up your time to focus on what you do best.


Balance. Reward. Independence. Freedom.
Isn’t it time to give your business a fresh Zest for life?

In the early years of growth in particular, we understand that your business is all you eat, sleep and breathe (been there!). But with the hard work comes a long list of rewards, and we help our clients reach them. We invest time getting to know all our clients, whether you’re a newbie sole trader or a larger, established Company with a team to look after. At Zest, we find out what makes you tick and look at where your business is now and where you want it to be; after all, your circumstances in year one are likely to be very different to year five. Once we understand your aims, we adapt our offer to work in tandem – and we keep adapting to your ever-changing needs.

“It’s thanks to Zest that I have less pressure, it’s thanks to Zest that I have more time. An excellent accountancy firm who has looked after us for many, many years.  They’re reliable, friendly, prompt and exceptionally professional. They’ve helped us sail through any concerns and have always gone the extra mile with all accountancy issues.  We now have more free time thanks to their recommendations with accounts packages, leaving us stress free.  We have no hesitation in recommending Zest Accountants. They are simply the best!”

“We have been with Lucy and her team since she first started Zest Accountants. We have always found the service to be professional yet personable – qualities that are increasingly hard to find nowadays. Lucy is always on hand to offer her advice quickly and efficiently if we have any business related queries. As a small business owner this is invaluable and allows us to trade with confidence.
We would recommend Zest to any other small to medium business looking to get the edge over the competition – it has really helped us!”

Managing Director, Merchandise Industry

“I have used Zest Accountants for over 3 years and couldn’t be happier with their service. I engaged with Lucy after my 1 st year in business, and it’s fair to say that our finance function had taken a back seat! Lucy came in, sorted everything out and cleaned up the entire process. Since then Lucy and her team have been exceptional and assisted with our business growth. They now look after everything including our Annual Accounts, Tax Return, VAT and Payroll.
The best thing about Zest Accountants? They are always available to answer any questions I have. As a small business owner, the Finance side of the business can be a mine field and Zest Accountants have helped me every step of the way.
I highly recommend their services!”

Managing Director, Recruitment Industry

“When I was in the process of founding Lightology one of my key requirements was a partner with sound accountancy advice and an expert knowledge of the latest, cloud-based software systems. I was introduced to Zest Accountants, was immediately impressed with their skill-set, experience and attitude so employed their services immediately.
From company formation, through Xero set-up and training (and fixing my numerous errors in the early days!), tax advice and innumerable other questions and queries I have always been confident in quality results. In fact, I could go as far to say that Zest are an integral part of our initial and ongoing success.
I have recommended their services to numerous other businesses and will continue to do so. That to me is the true indication of a satisfied customer!”
