Making accountancy, child's play

Helping parents to start up and build their businesses

How can I help you today?

Am I the right accountant for you and your business?

Based in Cardiff, I work with parents across the UK, who are growing their businesses alongside their children.

All are trying to build something that gives them a better work life balance, whilst having possibly more colds than they’ve ever had in their entire life.

But working part time, from home or unusual hours doesn’t mean you have less of a business.

You can still make a profit. You can still use accounting software. You can still know your business numbers.

It’s all about focus.

Let me show you how.

What a couple of lovely people have said about me:

Jenny Stone

Whenever I have had queries, Claire has responded quickly, efficiently and in understandable terms.  I've received good sound advice that has saved me time.  The service has been very flexible at the same time being highly professional, which is essential for me due to work and life commitments.

Ben Scoins

Claire operates with such a personal touch that it really assures you that you are her priority. Regardless of my own lack of knowledge, she always explains herself perfectly. I would recommend her to anyone

Samantha Fairclough

Claire was very professional, efficient and helped me work through what felt like, a very complicated process. If you've never completed a self assessment tax return, it can feel a bit overwhelming. Claire really helped me to get my head around it all and took the stress out of the whole process.

Some qualifications and awards to hopefully show you that I know what I'm doing
