& Structuring


Sometimes the only way to understand a person’s business or financial situation is by a face-to-face meeting.

This is the way we prefer it too. Mention you’ve seen it here and get your initial consultation with the first hour at no charge.

Welcome to EMERGE

You may have gathered by the name that we not only help our clients with advising and reporting on the “nuts and bolts” but we also take a look inside your business and see what emerges.

We then guide you and your team to reach your full potential and provide the tools to help you reach your goals.

In this day and age of virtual relationships, EMERGE takes a boutique-style approach in personally working alongside our clients, demystifying the figures and setting you on a clearer path.



It’s easier than
you think.

Our Story


Johannesson & Associates Ltd was founded in 1987 by Alistair Johannesson.
Alistair recognises the business is bigger than his name and in 2021 he re-focussed and a new name emerged. It was time to reflect what the business has become with a new brand that better represents our true purpose and approach.

We’re a deliberately personal team and we take pride in helping our clients with practical solutions in a pragmatic way. We adopt a boutique approach in working alongside our clients where our commitment is to understand the goals and set the framework to help your business achieve those goals.

We offer a variety of services including compliance accounting and tax, specialised business consulting and solutions.

We have a commitment to maintaining professionalism and ensuring our team is up to date with current business practice and taxation legislation.
