Meet the Team

Lisa Compton qualified as an Accountant in 1990 and set up her own business
in 2010 because she felt that was the best way to offer a personal, friendly service to small businesses who can
find that larger firms are expensive and not best placed to help them.

Welcome! This is our dedicated Team. Did we say that we would love to work with you? So don’t be shy, get in touch!
