I have been working as a Chartered Accountant for over 20 years, but always for other people. During that time, I have become passionate that small and start-up businesses deserve the same high quality accountancy service that big businesses take for granted.
However, even with 110% support from my long suffering husband I didn't find the courage to start Accounts Resource until January 2012 when we received the earth shattering news that that an innocuous mole I had removed the previous December was a malignant melanoma and the cancer had spread to my lymph glands. After going through successful surgery and radiotherapy I was determined to make our business work, providing a high quality accountancy service for small and start-up businesses.
We now work as a husband and wife team with lots of small businesses based from Warwickshire to Wiltshire, Hampshire, and of course London, Middlesex and Surrey. Our aim is to use cloud accountancy packages to help small businesses owners get their finances under control, so that they can concentrate on what they do best - running their business!
