Meet the Team.

Hi my name is Abbie and I am a Cloud Accounting Specialist at Northern Accountants, having started my career as an accounts apprentice in an estate agents where I obtained my AAT Accounting Technician qualification.

At NA, my main role is to make sure that all of our clients' bookkeeping is up to date on a weekly or monthly basis, making sure VAT deadlines are not missed and making sure all clients with CIS returns are submitted before the deadline.

I like 'my Northern Accountants family'. There is always plenty to do and the week flies by. The team and the office environment are great. I am always busy so I never find myself bored!

I am easy going, friendly and like to spend most of my time out of work shopping and eating!

When contacting NA, please dial 0113 218 9552 and opt for extension number 213.
