Kelly, the founder of Greenhalgh Accountancy, is a qualified chartered accountant with 20 years of experience behind her. She has worked extensively in both industry and accounting practice and has worked with and advised a variety of diverse businesses from multi-nationals to the SMEs she now focuses on.
As the daughter of an SME owner, Kelly is passionate about working with small businesses. She provides guidance through the huge amount of fiscal legislation in place, freeing you to focus on your area of expertise. Using her background in large multi-national firms, combined with her love of small businesses, Kelly is able to add real value to her clients through helping them to fully understand the financial side of their business and so ensure that their firms can grow and prosper. Working together, Kelly and her clients create strategies to maximise the profitability of their businesses.
Whatever the size of your business, Kelly will be able to tailor her approach so that the services provided will adapt as your needs change. New startups may require just the submission of a tax return whilst established businesses will benefit from value add services such as the business insight provided in monthly management accounts.
Kelly is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) and subject to their regulations. She is also a school governor, treasurer of her local scouts group and an enterprise advisor working with D2N2 to support the employability of young people. In her spare time she can usually be found climbing a Peak District hill with her mischievous beagle.
I set up Greenhalgh Accountancy in 2014 after deciding to fulfill a lifelong ambition to work for myself. Having worked in the corporate world at a senior level with Kellogg for 10 years, I wanted to bring some of the knowledge and insight I gained there to the small but hugely inspirational businesses within my local community. I wanted to set up a practice which would embody my values and be more about helping businesses to grow than simply churning out tax returns.
Working with entrepreneurs and local businesses means that I get to spend my day with people who are passionate about their work and constantly striving to improve. The enthusiasm and pride my clients have in their work is infectious and I love playing a part in the thriving local economies that these amazing people are creating.
