Our aim is to provide an all round professional and friendly service to small businesses from Bookkeeping to Final Accounts, whatever their office requirements.
We are a small friendly Accountancy practice based in the rural village of Midhopestones which is situated within a 10 mile radius of Sheffield and Barnsley.
The partnership consists of Angela Button [AAT qualified] and Fiona Hall [Sage Bookkeeping qualified]. Between us we have 40 years experience in this field. We worked closely together as part of the audit team for a Chartered Accountant before forming a partnership 3 years ago.
I began working life as a clerk in the registrars department of Midland Bank, and studying for the ONC Business Studies qualification. At the age of 20 moving on to the role as a Civil Servant, in the Inland Revenue department. After 5 years in this role I left full time employment to raise a family at home, but with book keeping work done on a part time basis.
The accounting and tax work then progressed into working for a Chartered Accountant based in Barnsley, first on a part time basis and then later into full time working. I was employed here for 14 years during which time I obtained the accountancy qualification with the Association of Accounting Technicians. For the last 7 of those years was spent working closely with Fiona as the audit team.
In 2003 I then took up the post of Assistant Commercial Accountant at the head office of a national timber merchant company where I remained for 7 years until Fiona and I took up the opportunity of going into partnership in 2011.Qualification: MAAT
