My passion has always been to work for myself, and I’ve had a determination since leaving university to achieve this. Since gaining my accountancy degree in 1997 and subsequently going onto qualifying with the ACCA, I have had extensive experience working in accountancy practices. I am lead auditor trained and have experience in managing two accountancy practices; managing a portfolio of 250-300 clients, ranging from sole traders and small family owned limited companies. This has given me a good insight into the needs of small businesses.
So where am I now? I made the decision to start my own business in September 2005, with only a handful of clients to start with. It was a little daunting at first, but this didn’t phase me. I have always been a determined person and I am dedicated to ensuring my services meet and exceed my clients’ expectations. My business has grown from strength to strength primarily through client recommendation; and continues to grow to this day.
Having good client relationships, understanding their needs and delivering on time is crucial to any business. I am committed to visiting clients when it is convenient for them, offering early morning, late evening and weekend appointments. Even while away from the office; and knowing there is something significant occurring with a client’s business, I will always be on the end of the phone should they need me, even if it is just for assurance and peace of mind.
Some clients start a conversation with “I am sure this is a silly question but…..” Sound familiar? My immediate response has always been, “It’s not silly at all. It’s important that you understand and I’m happy to help”. I would like my clients to feel they can ask me any question without feeling embarrassed. I have been known to be on the telephone to clients late at night assisting them with their needs.
I now have over 100 clients ranging from sole traders through to limited companies. I have remained with what I know best through my 25 years’ experience working in practice, by focusing on clients that are small family run businesses who are seeking an effective accountant.
I have always been, and always will be committed, ethical and integral in all my business dealings. Should you require assurance from my satisfied clients, please visit the ‘client quotes’ section on this website. You won’t find a harder working accountant. Although knowledgeable, efficient and serious in all matters of accounting, I am but human and like most people, I do have a sense of humour as well. Enjoy!
