It has been an exciting few months at Seymour Taylor. They were delighted to announce that the ACCA uprated their Approved Employer status for Trainee Development from Silver to Gold and along with welcoming two new trainees to the team they also celebrate a CTA qualification and a promotion.
Lauren Bamford joined our Audit and Accounts team in July after completing her A-Levels this year at school in Reading, Berkshire. In the coming months, she will be studying further for her AAT.
Lauren enjoys the reconciliation side of her work and the fact that there is a great deal of logic.
Sam Hilton joined the firm as a Trainee in Audit and Accounts and after completing a recent bookkeeping course, he will be moving onto his Chartered qualification.
Sam has a keen interest in ancient history and after graduating in 2008, he went on to gain a Masters in Ancient History & Biblical studies in 2011.
Sam had previously been involved in project work before joining Seymour Taylor and very much likes the process side of accounts, aiming toward a clients’ clear financial objective.
During the Summer, Cerys Llewellyn celebrated becoming fully CTA qualified which we all know is a huge achievement.
Cerys joined the firm in January 2013 as a qualified ACA Chartered Accountant and has spent most of her professional career in practice, handling personal tax. She is involved in tax planning work particularly in relation to Inheritance Tax mitigation, Trusts and International / non-domiciled issues.
A senior member of the Audit and Accounts team, Laura Robinson, celebrated a promotion at the start of September.
Laura joined the firm in August 2008, went on to pass her AAT 18 months later and in July 2013, after a year of passing her ICAEW papers she was able to use those much desired ACA letters after her name.
In addition to accounts prep and tax assignments, Laura is involved in Solicitors audits (SRA) and finds the investigative side quite appealing. She has also worked on an intricate project transferring a client from manual to computerised records. This involved analysing which software packages were best for the business as well as the director.
