ProfessionalExpertise

  • Member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants
  • Over 10 years experience within the audit and accountancy profession
  • Familiar with many types of business both unincoporated and incorporated and works closely with many of Short's charity clients
  • Proficient in using many accounting software packages including Xero and Sage
  • Xero certified advisor

I spent my first years within accountancy working for smaller firms in the Chesterfield and Sheffield region, becoming ACCA qualified in 2014. During my time at these firms, I gained experience in accountancy and audit as well as other departments such as payroll, VAT and personal & corporate tax.

I joined Shorts as an account and audit senior and was later promoted to manager.  Throughout my training, my focus has always been on my clients and this was one of the reasons I wanted to work for Shorts – they are known for excellent client service.

At Shorts, I specialise in the preparation of accounts and the provision of audit services for businesses and I work very closely with a lot of our charity clients. Proficient in many types of accounting software, I continue to assist my clients to maximise their use of the software available to them and also look for opportunities to streamline their processes.

I try to keep in regular contact with my clients to ensure that they are aware of any changes to statutory requirements, filing deadlines, etc. as I understand that our clients are busy in the day to day running of their business.

COVID-19In line with the most recent Government announcements, both of our offices still remain closed to clients and all but a few essential members of our team. Over the coming weeks, our phased transition will see members of our team returning to the office, where we have made a number of changes to ensure a safe working environment. All of our team can still be contacted by clients, whether working from home or in the office. If you would like to speak to one of them, please contact them via their direct email or mobile number. Calls to our office reception numbers will be answered, and a message passed on, for your call to be returned.
