Service Description

I am a qualified accountant with over twenty years experience in building financial models, utilising my skills to deliver cost reduction, restructing and outsourcing programmes within the telecoms, manufacturing and financial services sectors. During my 20 years as an accountant, I have implemented budgeting and forecasting, management reporting and project management procedures and documentation.

I really enjoy working with small businesses, taking away the strain of bookkeeping and other financial and administrative work to allow the owners and staff to concentrate on what they do best - running their business!!

I'm very flexible, having worked on very small projects - reconciling a year's worth of subscription banking transactions back to to the sales ledger - to very large projects - managing a GBP960m operating cost budget. My strengths lie in my ability to quickly assess what's required and get on with it.

At the end of the day, you are my customer and I want to you to be delighted with the service I provide.
