Alan Close


Accountancy, Business Services & Support

Alan has been a manager with Whitelaw Wells since 2007.  Prior to that, he trained with BDO Stoy Hayward, was Financial Controller for a large independent deli / wine merchant / catering chain for 10 years and then ran his own sole practitioner accountancy practice in Perthshire. 

Alan manages a portfolio of SME’s and owner-managed businesses from a wide range of industries, including dentistry and farming. He has over 30 years of experience as an accountant and likes being involved in bespoke and challenging projects, in addition to helping clients with compliance work.

Outside of the office, Alan enjoys travelling throughout Europe, playing traditional Scottish music, and is attempting (with some difficulty!) to learn to speak Greek.
