I joined Ellacotts as a Manager in the Agriculture and Property department in June 2011, having qualified as an accountant in 2007, whilst working for another firm of Oxfordshire accountants. I was promoted to Director of Agriculture and Property in December 2014.
My role involves looking after a wide range of agricultural and rural clients, from sole proprietors and family farming partnerships through to limited companies and large estates. I manage the accounts and tax compliance work for clients, as well as spending a lot of time assisting with tax planning matters which includes Income Tax planning and profit predictions, Capital Gains Tax planning in connection with land sales and Inheritance Tax planning when considering succession issues. I have a hands on approach and I am willing to spend time getting to know a clients’ businesses in order to assist with their accounting and taxation issues in an effective manner.
I feel very fortunate to work with a great team here at Ellacotts and enjoy working with our agricultural and rural clients.
I am also involved with the Agricultural Law Association – South Midlands group, which organises quarterly events for fellow Agricultural Professionals in our area.
Outside of work, I am heavily involved with my husband’s family dairy farm, not only assisting with paperwork, but also helping out on the farm. I am also kept busy raising our adorable toddler.
