Let me introduce myself
I'm Helen Rhodes BSc FCA, an expert in small business finance
I have been qualified as a Chartered Accountant for nearly 20 years and have worked with numerous small and medium businesses.
Once ACA qualified, back in 2002, I moved from practice to industry as I was keen to learn how to be a ‘real’ accountant. I loved the experience that this brought – learning the nuts and bolts of how to make money, how to control costs, carry out business forecasting, and ultimately understand how all the functions within a business work together – sales, purchasing, marketing, IT, manufacturing, finance etc... I worked in several manufacturing firms with increasing levels of responsibility and my last role in industry was as Financial Controller at Senior Management level.
I decided to start up my own business as a general practitioner in 2010. I wanted the empowerment of self-employment, the freedom to choose my working hours and more of a connection to my local community.
I love being my own boss and I hope my passion for small business and entrepreneurship come across in how I work with my clients. I know the trials and tribulations of running your own business from first hand, and I also know how rewarding it can be.
I am very proud of how I have built up my practice from scratch. I pride myself on my professional but down-to-earth service and this is evidenced by how much my clients genuinely enjoy working with me - just take a look at the testimonials.
“After working with several accountants, I can say that Helen is far and away the most technically proficient and provides a great cost-efficient service.
Her no-jargon approach is refreshing and she has the ability to speak in laymen’s terms without being patronising. Her advice has been invaluable over the last few years and has helped our company go from strength to strength.
I don’t hesitate in recommending Helen and believe she is the right choice in a changeable economy especially with the new advancements in tax technology.”
"Everything you get from Helen is to the point, straight talking and honest. She is a joy to work with as you know exactly where you and your business stand and what you need to do to put things right or to be able to achieve more from your business and your accounting system.
We could not have managed without her this past 18 months"
