From my home in Arnesby, Leicestershire, I assist clients in and around the East Midlands area with all Tax, Accountancy and Business Advisory services.
My clients are mainly based in Leicestershire however I have many clients in both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Unlike many Accountants, my business differs in that generally I travel to you. This means that you are free to concentrate on running your business.
I offer a free no obligation consultation. This demonstrates how I work and what I could do for you.
Furthermore, fees are agreed in advance and are not charged by the hour meaning you do not receive any unexpected bills. I also encourage you to ring for ad-hoc advice when needed as this is all part of the agreed service.
I have been a qualified Chartered Accountant since 1991 having qualified with a local National Firm. Subsequently I became Finance Director in a large outsourcing Company in Northampton before returning to the profession and setting up my own practice in 2002.
Outside of work, I enjoy walking the dog, sailing, and I am a keen golfer.
