We are a professionally qualified accountancy practice regulated by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). All work will be completed and supervised by a qualified accountant. Using a qualified accountant is so important not only for the creditability doing so will bring but for the additional assurance and range of services that you can be offered.
You may find that our approach sometimes may be a little different and we may not fit the mould of a traditional accountant, this doesn’t stop us offering our services with a high degree of professionalism and expertise and we aim to not be just your accountant but someone that you can talk to about almost anything.
I started my career in accountancy in the 1990s after completing an accounting finance and economics degree at Oxford Brookes University. I have always worked in the SME sector so have considerable experience of advising clients across many different industries and professions.
I enjoy working with people and helping them to organise their business to achieve their maximum potential which then brings them personal life benefits and an overall happy outcome.
As anyone who runs their own business will appreciate there is nowadays no escape from the business at any time with emails and phone calls coming in all the time 24/7. When I have some spare time, I have follow many interests and pastimes. Oxford United Football Club has been a big part of my life and I have been a season ticket holder since 1992. I enjoy a lot of sports mostly as a spectator nowadays but do play golf when I get chance. I enjoy horse racing and online poker, play the guitar and hope to get back to playing the piano soon.
