Philip Smith

Small Business and Charity Services Manager

Philip is Dafferns’ longest serving member of staff, having joined the firm from school 49 years ago. He mainly looks after small limited companies, partnerships and sole traders.



I specialise in small charities and Solicitors Accounts Rules assignments. Being in the industry for over 49 years, I have a breadth of expertise covering a wide range of subjects, whilst attending to clients’ needs and providing an excellent service.

Hobbies and interests

Outside of work my interests include walking, sport (watching mainly), but I do play golf whenever I can. I often play golf abroad and like a glass of red wine. I also enjoy listening to music from the 60s and 70s (Pink Floyd, Genesis, Led Zeppelin) and have a considerable vinyl collection.
