Who we are

We have a practical, in-depth knowledge base to help you optimise your business and achieve whatever goals you have set for yourself.

We do not charge for phone calls or emails.

If you have a problem, we want you to get on the phone and talk to us. You may be afraid to ask a question for fear of being charged for the privilege, but problems fester and grow, then require a great deal of work to undo the damage.

We believe that prevention is better than cure. There is no such thing as a stupid question, only a stupid answer.

We will never set ‘guaranteed’ monthly charging structures.

We believe that as every client is different; you should be assessed as an individual, rather than an off-the-shelf package.

We may not be the cheapest, but the cheapest advice often turns out to be the most expensive.

We believe that we give the best value, for you and your business.

Bio

Since 1977 Tim has worked in various financial sectors including funding (consumer and corporate), insurance and assurance, debt advice, and has also run a family-owned retail business. In late 1996 he combined all of his financial expertise and experience and commenced studies to become a qualified accountant. He qualified with the AAT in mid-2000. Since then he has expanded his qualifications, and is now a fellow member of four major accounting bodies (IFA, AAT, AIA, IPA). With the knowledge gained from both work experience and formal study and training he has established LAS as a proactive accountancy practice. LAS works alongside all their clients with the aim to not to simply report results or account for failures, but to assist and facilitate success.

Qualifications

FFA, ACCA, FIPA, BSc (Hons)

Specialism

SA and Partnership Tax, Payroll, CIS

Bio

James graduated from the University of Southampton with a degree in Physics in 2009, and in 2010 joined LAS to undertake his chartered accountancy qualifications. His internship with PWC in the summer of 2008 made him realise that he craved a more personal and direct relationship with his clients, and LAS enabled him to learn how to practice not simply as how the textbooks would show, but the right way. In 2014 he qualified with the ACCA and also gained fellow membership to the IFA, becoming their youngest fellow member. He is also a fellow member of the IPA. His focus is always on quality over quantity and concentrating on the bigger picture. Looking forwards is a much more arduous task than looking back, but it is often the most rewarding and financially prudent path.
