Imagine a setup where your business financials were taken care of in the cloud, away from the restrictions of ground-based programs and traditional office setup.


  • Where keeping files and boxes and paperwork in your spare room was a thing of the past
  • Where all business functions were integrated together, meaning no task is duplicated
  • Where you were able to review simple and clear LIVE financial performance dashboards (even send that proposal and sales invoice out to your new customer) all from your phone at the top of the mountain (or even by the poolside)


Imagine a support network around you, that can work collaboratively with you, to help grow your business, and that will support you and empower you to make better business decisions …


  • Where we create a framework together, so we’re all working together to create a stronger, efficient, smarter business setup
  • … and where expertise is only a few clicks away, 24/7.

All too many times, this image of a unified and simple approach isn’t a reality, and our aim is to make this so!


We wanted to create a harmonious supporting network, full of approachable and professional accountants and business advisers, that gave business owners the opportunity to operate within this unified and simple setup, so everyone could benefit.  And this is the service that we’ve created!


Free from the restrictions of fragmented systems, and harmonious in support structure, Progression Accountancy offers a vibrant cutting-edge responsive accountancy and unified business support service like no other, that has a real impact on the lives of ambitious business owners who want to thrive and succeed.


Our mission is:

●     for You to know your financial numbers.

Scott Bradshaw

FCCA, FMAAT, Xero Certified

Xero Implementation Specialist

07890 525638


I’ve been a chartered certified accountant for 11 years now and a Xero Certified Adviser for 4 of them, and it’s the last 4 years where I have found true value in what I can do for a business.


I love working with ambitious business owners who want to grow their business and become more successful.  As an accountant and fellow business owner, I know how useful and powerful up to date financials can be.  That’s why I spend my days helping business owners to not only keep on top of their financials, but to empower them to know and use these numbers to improve their lives.


Outside of work I love playing and watching football, especially with my 3 kids, and I am also an FA licensed coach as I manage Hasland under 8s, my daughter’s team!  Once the kids are in bed I like to unwind with a few bottles of real ale while watching a bit of telly.

Xero Adviser

07813 339693


My accountancy career began when I left school in 1978.  I have worked all my life in Sheffield, developing an extensive knowledge of the business community and a long list of excellent professional contacts. I was first appointed a Partner at the age of 25.


I’m a Xero Certfied Adviser, and my specialism is providing proactive and timely advice and solutions to owner managed businesses of all sizes – I can communicate with clients in a way they understand using plain language.  I have worked my whole career with new startup/early stage businesses and have enjoyed various roles as a business mentor for a number of organisations.


I have lived in the village of Dore in Sheffield most of my life, I married Kathryn in 1988 and we have 3 sons.


Hayley Bradshaw

Creative Director – Marketing, Social Media & Branding

07793 318755


Love marketing & branding … it allows my creative side to flourish, working with images, colours and text all day is bliss!  I spend my days working on the website, in social media, writing blogs and newsletters – and try to get to the odd biz event when I can!


I love technology, and I’m excited about how this can help businesses to develop & improve the way in which they operate and do business with each other moving forwards.


Knowing the numbers & results of one’s business is key, so being Xero certified (and also a business owner) myself, I find it easy to login to our own accounts in Xero – and as I’m on the move a lot, I find the mobile app invaluable.


When I’m not working, I love spending time with my kids and family.  Sport is a big thing in our house: all 3 kids are involved in football, cricket & swimming, so always a packed schedule!  “Me time” is either getting to the gym or having a swim, or having a relaxing cuppa or homemade curry in front of the TV.


John Buist


Business Adviser

07721 431996


I qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant and have worked in industry, across a range of sectors : IT, Mining, Charity, Chemicals, Services, Printing, Energy and Engineering & Manufacturing. My career started in London, moving to the Midlands working in a variety of finance roles, later as Finance Director / CFO for Blue Chip, International and Venture – Capital backed companies.


In 2010, I chose a portfolio career path believing that a part time FD could be a cost-effective and valuable resource for SME’s & also start-ups – I’ve been busy ever since! Using my industry experience I provide guidance, financial management and commercial support. As a registered Growth Accelerator Coach, I also work with owners and management teams to help them achieve their business plans and goals.


I’m married with three sons. Outside of work, I enjoy being out on my motorcycle, the odd round of golf and spending time with the family.


Scott Golland

DipFS, BA Hons

Independent Financial Adviser

07880 603977


After completing a BA Hons Degree in Law & Business, I began a career as an Account Manager within the Education Sector for a blue chip telecoms company, where I went on to receive national recognition for my client management and professional approach. A number of years ago, having completed a DipFS qualification, I made the transition into Financial Advice where I could really make a difference and help people.


I work on the basis of very simple principles – transparency, honesty, integrity – and above all ensuring I do not give any advice I would not follow myself.


Football is main passion having played and regularly attended all manner of games from being small! I am also a keen golfer and boxing fan having spent a number of years practising Thai Boxing. Now I am a little too old/unfit for the above I enjoy spending time with my wife and friends as much as time allows.
