We are not your conventional accountants - we pride ourselves on combining our knowledge and professionalism with a friendly and approachable attitude that hopefully means a visit to see your accountant is not something to dread!
With over 30 years of experience and numerous Tax and Accountancy qualifications, we are a small team proud to offer experience and expertise without the big firm fees.
Ellen has worked her way through the ranks having been with the office since 2005. Prior to this she had worked in various accounting and finance roles for several years and had obtained her AAT qualification.
For her sins, she continued her professional qualifications and is a full and practicising member of the ACCA. This means you can be confident that the advice we provide is in accordance with the ethics and high professional standards of one of the key accounting bodies.
She enjoys reading (usually scandinavian detectives in roll-neck sweaters) socialising (especially where wine is involved) and the occasional swim.
Sam has been looking after our valued clients since 2009 after graduating with his degree in Economics and French. He has continued to increase his knowledge base, becoming a member of the ATT and currently studying towards exams to gain Chartered Tax Adviser status.
He is able to advise on all aspects of personal and corporate taxation, with particular experience in capital gains tax. He can also help with queries relating to accounts, VAT and PAYE.
He is a regular rugby player, and enjoys justifing his brain full of useless knowledge at the pub quiz.
Vikki is our resident bookkeeping, payroll, workplace pensions and VAT specialist. As well as making sure everybody meets their compliance obligations, she can assist you with your PAYE and VAT queries, being familiar with the various VAT schemes and issues often encountered by employers.
She enjoys fishing and kayaking, sometimes even combining the two on her regular trips to North Wales. When she is not on the high seas, you might find her walking her dog around the High Peak.
Kate deals with our clients' regular bookkeeping, payroll, and VAT compliance obligations in addition to preparing statutory accounts and accompanying tax returns. Constantly expanding her knowledge base, she acts as a point of contact for those who need support with their Xero package - she is our in-house cloud accounting specialist and can assist in resolving many issues.
She is a keen swimmer, and a huge fan of things that are bright and sparkly, including (but not limited to) mermaids and unicorns! As the most cheerful of our team, she is often the friendly voice you will find when calling the office.
