Why is it so important for businesses to hire a great accountant?

Regulation and the need for accurate financial reporting is crucial to the administration and operational excellence of a business.
It is also particularly time consuming for people looking to grow their business.
The opportunity to trust a high performing Chartered Accountant allows a business owner to get on with winning clients, building strategy and making the business successful. The assurance that the finance and administrative procedures are under control gives you back the time to achieve your business goals quicker.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have over 10 years of accounting and audit experience. I am a Chartered Accountant (having qualified with first time passes in 2010). Having worked in the mid-tier (Mazars) and the Big 4 (Ernst & Young) both in the UK and internationally (Australia), I have a high level of technical accounting expertise across a number of industries (Tech, Media, Consumer Products and Real Estate). This includes IFRS, UK GAAP and US GAAP experience.
Furthermore, as Group Financial Controller and Head of Finance for the UK's leading biomass energy business, I have extensive commercial accounting experience in a listed company environment. I have prepared detailed consolidated and single entity financial models, business plans and forecasts, which also take into account future acquisition of businesses. I have prepared single entity and consolidated statutory accounts as well as VAT returns, Corporation tax computations and cash flow forecasting for bank relations.
