I joined the Practice in 1993 having worked at Coopers and Lybrand (now PwC). I advise many local organisations ranging form large Charities and Academies to substantial owner managed businesses. I am known for my hands on approach and for giving strong commercial advice.

Say hello to Pink Pig!

150 years’ experience means we have traditional values; our knowledge of new tax technology means we have an innovative approach to both bookkeeping and payroll. This is why we were one of the first in our region to make the move to Cloud accounting and were selected as the first firm in the UK to submit a VAT return on the HMRC’s public beta with QuickBooks.

Our knowledge and passion for MTD is why we launched our sister company Pink Pig which provides a dedicated bookkeeping service to support businesses moving their accounting systems online. We have plenty of experience on a variety of Cloud accounting platforms, such as QuickBooks, Xero, Sage and FreeAgent, which means we can help you choose the right software that suits your business most. Our job is to make your job easier. By sharing our experience in digital tax solutions, we can relieve you of those financial burdens every business owner or manager faces, allowing you to focus your time developing your business whilst we provide the necessary financial advice and support.
