MAAT

Agriculture & Property

I joined the Agriculture and Property team at Ellacotts in 2012 as a Trainee Accountant, having previously worked in banking.

Since joining, I have completed my AAT qualification and I am now working towards achieving my ICAEW chartered qualification.

Day-to-day I am exposed to a variety of tasks including preparing accounts and tax returns for a mixture of sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and LLP’s. The client portfolio we have is very varied which means no two jobs are the same, allowing me to expand my knowledge and experience. In recent years, I have been more involved in preparing the accounts and tax returns for a number of trusts including interest in possession and discretionary trusts.

The training programme that Ellacotts runs has enabled me to utilise the knowledge and skills I have gained while working here to assist junior members of staff through mentoring.

I enjoy meeting clients both in the office and at agriculture shows and events and helping them with their needs. This has enabled me to build good relationships with a number of clients.

When I am not in the office or busy studying, I enjoying trying out new restaurants, going to music concerts and Pilates in an effort to try to keep fit.
