W. J. Matthews is a firm of Chartered Accountants, Chartered Tax Advisers and a Registered Auditor.  The practice was established in 1919 by W J Matthews who was succeeded more than 60 years ago by his son, the late W Trefor Matthews.  Currently the practice has two partners, Laura M. Adams and David Chidley.

The business ran for many decades from 34 Castle Square, but relocated some 15 years ago to the current offices at 11-15 Bridge Street, Caernarfon.

We are a bilingual practice providing all the services through the medium of both English and Welsh.
