Accountants in Stoke-on-Trent

We are tax specialists with experience in practice and industry and are registered with The Chartered Institute of Taxation as a firm of Chartered Tax Advisers.

We are a young team of tax specialists and accountants in Stoke-on-Trent who are passionate about what we do and are proactive in our approach. We will work closely with you to understand your business, your needs and understand what you want to get out of your business.

We constantly look for ways to save you tax and advise you throughout the year of ways to achieve this. Whether that is choosing the best accounting policy for you or choosing the best time to buy your capital assets. We will look to see if the business is structured in the best possible way to reduce your tax bill, to reduce your risk, to protect your assets and to extract money from the business.

We have a large network of contacts with different specialisms and can draw on these where appropriate. We have close links to agencies in the Engineering Sector throughout the UK and provide specialist advice to those who contract in industries such as Nuclear, Oil & Gas, Water and also Offshore. Whether you want to be put in touch with a recruitment agency, book keeper, independent financial advisor or a mortgage broker, we can arrange this for you.

We will not use jargon or ‘blind you with science’. We will explain things in plain English, so that everyone understands.

For fully serviced packages we charge an annual amount, which we will arrange with you to be paid over twelve equal installments. The price will be fixed and agreed with you in advance. This enables you to better plan you cash flow and ensures there are no nasty surprises at the end of the year.

We also offer our services at an hourly rate, which we use for ad-hoc advisory services. Depending on the complexity of the issue, the hourly rate may change if a more senior member of the team is required. We will discuss this with you beforehand and give you a quote if required. If this is a large or lengthy piece of work we can arrange for our fee to be paid in installments, again this will be discussed with you in advance.

To contact us for a quote or just a chat about what we can do for you, please see our contact us page for details on how to contact us.

Meet Emily – Director

After sitting my A Levels I decided I wanted to work full time whilst gaining further qualifications, rather than going to University. I started full time employment at the age of 18 in the tax department of a national accountancy practice. While working in the department I gained my accountancy and tax qualifications and a whole lot of experience! I have worked in the personal tax and corporate tax departments; and also did a stint in the accounts department, mainly preparing management accounts. I have since gone onto advise on corporate restructures, research and development claims, specialist capital allowances and various issues in HMRC Tax Enquiries. I am committed and passionate about what I do and enjoy working closely with our clients. My personal passion is my car and car racing – although I never race my car. On a weekend you’ll most likely find me watching the banger racing.

I graduated with a 2:1 Law & Business Degree from Staffordshire University and joined RSM Tenon (formerly RSM Bentley Jennison) in 2008 and sat my Association of Taxation Technician exams whilst working in the Tax Department.

I pride myself on being approachable & knowledgeable and like to develop close working relationships with my clients. I focus mainly on accounts, personal tax, VAT and business support & consultancy through the use of Xero cloud accounting and add ons.

Meet Sharon – Personal Tax Assistant

I have spent the last 17 years working in personal tax with mainly sole traders. This means I have in-depth knowledge of the tax legislation that affects sole traders and can give expert guidance on what expenses they can claim for and how to maximise their tax efficiency. I build very close relationships with my clients and go the extra mile to ensure that they receive the best service possible. It is important to me that clients feel comfortable to approach me about anything that they feel unsure about and help to navigate them through the complex personal tax system.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. I am a mum to two boys aged 6 & 1.
