Price Bailey is the brand used by Price Bailey Group Limited and its subsidiary companies and limited liability partnerships, and occasionally other authorised firms, to operate and provide professional services. Price Bailey is used to refer either to individual firms or to several or all of them collectively.
The principal firm is Price Bailey LLP, but other firms (listed below) are used for certain regulated services and outside the UK. All except our business in St Lucia are owned directly or indirectly by Price Bailey Group Limited.
In many parts of the world, accounting firms are required by law to be locally owned and independent. In St Lucia we have licensed a legally independent local practitioner to trade as Price Bailey for certain discrete services where he draws on the resources and methodologies of Price Bailey to support his services to his clients.
Our standard terms and conditions of business enable us to allocate and share work and information amongst the Price Bailey firms, to enable efficient working and best service for the client.
It is Price Bailey’s policy to ensure that client engagements are recorded in writing by the most appropriate firm for the particular services that are required. Each firm cannot act as an agent of any other, cannot obligate any other and is liable only for its own acts or omissions.
Price Bailey is a member firm of several national and international professional bodies and associations, most notably the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the UK200Group and IAPA International. Whilst we frequently work with such bodies and their members, they are all wholly independent of Price Bailey and are liable for their own acts or omissions.

- Price Bailey LLP (registered in England & Wales, number OC307551)
