I joined as one of the principals in April 2005 after spending seventeen years at Bentley Jennison, a large Birmingham city centre practice.
After spending such a long time at a large practice I felt it was right to focus my time dealing more closely with my clients. Making the move has allowed me to devote more time to dealing personally with them, and reduce their annual accounting costs.
I have extensive experience providing commercial, accounting and taxation advice to small businesses, and their owners in many different sectors. However, I have particular expertise in the following sectors:
- Catering (Restaurants, takeaways and public houses)
I work hard to gain an understanding of their businesses, and the ambitions and expectations of the individuals behind them. This provides me with a platform to offer practical commercial, accounting and taxation advice which is relevant, and tailored to each businesses needs.
