AAT

Business & Tax Services

I joined Ellacotts as an AAT Trainee within the Business and Tax Services (BaTS) department in June 2016, after graduating from Swansea University with a degree in Maths and Sports Science.

In my day-to-day role, I prepare statutory accounts for small – medium sized businesses and sole traders, along with their corresponding tax returns. On occasion, I also prepare personal tax returns. I enjoy the mathematical side of accounting as it gives me the chance to work with numbers and figures.

The firm offers its staff the constant opportunity to learn and progress along the career ladder, into different levels. After completing my AAT qualification, I will progress onto studying towards my ACA qualification.

Away from the office I enjoy being active and fill my spare time with sport playing for a local badminton, tennis and football team. Also on the rare occasions when we do get nice weather, I enjoy going back down to the south coast in Dorset where I grew up.
