Welcome to
James Hair & Co

Accountants and financial planners in Fife

We are an experienced team of accountants, tax specialists, business advisers, financial planners and investment advisers, who all share the same enthusiasm, care and drive to help you to thrive. 

With offices in Cupar and St Andrews, Fife, we combine the skills, knowledge and experience that you’ll find in any large practice with the personal, thoughtful, friendly approach of a local firm. 


What we do

Accountancy Services

We support you as your business grows, helping with a range of services including preparation of accounts, payroll and book keeping, and IT system reviews and training.



We identify ways to make sure you don’t pay more tax than you need to. We advise on everything from income tax and corporation tax to inheritance tax, VAT and National Insurance.


Business consultancy

We can guide you on all aspects of setting up and running your own business from raising finance to managing cashflow, succession planning and selling a business.


Financial Planning

Our ability to combine financial with taxation planning expertise means we can also help you to plan your retirement, manage your wealth and protect your family and your business.


I know they’re not going to con me. They’re honest, hard-working and easy to be with.


The firm’s advice has helped our business save huge amounts of money.


Working with James Hair & Co is like having your own in-house Financial Director.


Who we help

Business owners

We work with small and medium sized businesses across the UK and overseas. Our clients cover a very wide range of sectors, but our expertise is in agriculture, land and estates, property development, renewables, and rural tourism.



We support people who are looking for clarity around their finances, helping them to optimise their current position, protect their wealth, achieve ongoing tax efficiency, keep track of where they are, and plan for their future.



We help clients through life’s transitions, advising people reaching specific milestones such as having a family, starting or selling a business or reaching retirement. We start with your current circumstances and work from there.


What makes us different

Personal contact

You get to work directly with the partners, who’ll get to know you and your business on a personal level and develop a proactive relationship with you.

Progressive systems

We put technology at the heart of our business and offer Cloud-based accountancy systems, online investment platforms, and a Foreign Exchange (FX) dealing service.

Value for money

With lower overheads than larger firms, we provide the same level of skills and expertise at a more competitive rate.
