Ashley Stephenson

Business Services

Ash is a Trainee Accountant in our Business Services department.

On a daily basis, Ash works with his clients to ensure their accounts are compliant with relevant standards and legislation; understanding the needs of his clients in terms of remuneration and profit extraction and determining what the best course of action is.

Having worked in general practice for 6 years, in addition to studying towards becoming a Chartered Accountant, Ash has developed skills across the board in accounts production, VAT management accounts and audit.

Ash likes to work with real time information using cloud based software such as Xero, meaning he can assist his clients with current and future issues, rather than working with historic information.

What he enjoys most about his job is getting to know the client. Everybody has a different story and reason for doing what they do. Ash likes to become part of the team and assist his clients in reaching their goals and ambitions, whether it is to grow their company, make a charity sustainable or develop a nest egg for the future.

He is in the final stages of studying towards his ACA and hopes to qualify as a Chartered Accountant next year.

In his spare time, Ash enjoys playing cricket for his local team. He also likes spending time outdoors and constantly wants to explore different places and countries.
