The director of Small Business Support and Accounts Ltd, Sara Williams, has over twenty five years’ experience as a Financial Controller specialising in the production of management accounts.* (see below) She is also both a Certified Professional Forensic accountant and Certified Bookkeeper and is a practicing member of both The Institute of Certified Forensic Accountants (registration no: 3742) and The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (practice licence no: 16242.) To compliment this, she also has both a degree and master’s degree in law.
Sara has held positions of executive financial responsibility in both national and international companies but prefers to specialise in accounting for small businesses. Over the years, she has gained valuable experience managing the financial statutory obligations of many companies, while never losing sight of the day-to-day bookkeeping of the smaller end of business, by being an active volunteer as a treasurer for charitable and fundraising organisations.
However, it is Sara’s experience of being a small business owner that has given her a vital insight into the unique demands that the self-employed and small business owners face.
Having also been a member of various business networking organisations, such as the Federation of Small Businesses, she has had the privilege of meeting many other small business owners who consistently encounter problems keeping on top of their accounts. The most common grievance of such companies is the amount of professional fees they have no choice but to pay at year end. It is often only then that they know what their profits and tax obligations are.
It is against this background that led Sara to set up Small Business Support and Accounts Ltd. Through this company Sara is able to offer an affordable range of accounting services to her clients, enabling sole traders and small businesses to stay in control of their finances. She is also pleased to offer internal audit services to assess financial risk for small companies, together with financial investigative services to identify potential weaknesses or irregularities.
