I am an Accounts Senior in the Agriculture and Property department. My role largely involves helping our clients with their tax responsibilities be it Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax, Corporation Tax or VAT, always minded towards minimising the tax bill by making best use of the reliefs available. I also get involved in ad hoc work; examples being profit projections and refinancing.
I have good ties with providers of bookkeeping software geared towards our farming and estate clients, and over the years I am proud to have been involved with hosting joint events with the likes of Landmark Systems, Sum-IT Software and Farmplan, in which we have offered free software training sessions for clients and non-clients alike.
I joined the firm in July 1999 as a Trainee, and here I attained both AAT and ACCA qualifications. Although I am primarily based in Banbury, I enjoy working both from our Kettering office and out at our clients’ premises.
During my time with Ellacotts I have seen many faces come and go, and the firm has doubled in size. However, what makes Ellacotts special is the people; who focus on client service and work well together as a team.
Away from the office, my interests include cars, football, music, watching films and spending time with my daughter, Nell.
