Hi my name is Tom and I'm one of the Cloud Accounting Specialists here at Northern Accountants.
Before joining, I gained five years' experience with another accountancy so I have a fairly detailed knowledge and understanding of issues surrounding payroll, accounts and tax.
Away from work, I like to travel and spend most of my time with my girlfriend El, travelling and eating our way around the world. I'm also into Indie music, particularly Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes.
I’ve gained 5 years’ experience in another accountancy practice – taking care of payroll, accounts, business tax and personal tax records for clients from all types of industries.
Working in an accountancy practice in Huddersfield.
Learning and getting to grips with all the new accounting systems and ways of working, especially as NA has a much more technology-based culture compared to the last practice where I worked.
The team, who are all caring and helpful people - and I like how forward thinking the business is too.
It’s a really progressive company, which uses all the technology and apps available to make clients’ lives as easy as possible.
Nobody likes bad feedback, so I strive to be the best I can be and I want clients to benefit from that.
To go as far as I can with NA - I don’t think there are any limits to my ambition.
Any indie playlist with Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes on it!
Richard Ayoade or Alex Turner - just because I’m a massive fan of them both.
Be patient, something good will always happen sooner than you think.
My girlfriend’s Dad used to play for Burnley.
Being late and untidiness.
My Dad because he’s run his own businesses for as long as I can remember and he’s passed his work ethic down to me.
And my Mum because of how hard working she is, even if it is sometimes under appreciated by people.
Confident, smart, realistic, driven and positive.
Arctic Monkeys, Pizza, Submarine, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace
Apparently, I’m quiet but I definitely say ‘cool’ or ‘sweet’ all the time!
A few weeks? I’m not sure, I probably need it more than I realise.
Sun cream, an iPod full of music and a few beers to have on the beach – why not treat myself?!
