After completing my degree at Loughborough University I joined the firm in 2010 as a trainee accountant, gaining my ACA qualification in 2014 and becoming a partner in 2017.
Whilst my workload covers all aspects of taxation, accountancy and audit, I have developed an expert knowledge of cloud based accounting systems including Kashflow and Xero. With the impending Making Tax Digital (MTD) legislation set to affect most businesses across the UK, I shall be helping clients make the transition to electronic record keeping and quarterly financial reporting.
I specialise in dealing with owner managed SME’s and particularly enjoy this work due to its broad range; from preparation of statutory financial statements and tax returns to management accounts and succession / exit planning.
I work from both our Bingley and Ilkley offices and enjoy getting out to spend time with clients as I feel this is the best way to understand their needs and enables me to tailor my advice accordingly. I find that giving proactive recommendations to clients in an efficient and timely manner is key to helping them run their business effectively and profitably.
In my spare time I play football, squash and am a keen follower of Formula 1. I enjoy travelling, having visited many European cities, as well as more obscure destinations such as Bolivia and the Amazon Rainforest. The ‘Golden Triangle’ route on the West Coast of the USA is definitely on the bucket list!
