Abacus Accountancy: a name you can count on
Accountants — Book-Keepers — Consultants
Peter After 30 years in commerce, a convenient opportunity to venture out as a sole practitioner accountant arose in 2017. This also gives me the flexibility for school runs for Georgia our grand-daughter – and to walk Leah our Labrador/Alsatian rescue dog (during daylight in the winter). As a keen cyclist I had hoped to get more miles on the bike – but this has not happened with the number of clients steadily growing – despite taking on staff to cope! In addition, I am a director of Buy Local, an organisation which encourages people to support and buy from local independent businesses, as well as a director for Eastern Landlords which ties in with the small rental portfolio built up over the years. I have been Treasurer for Shine, a charity in Yarmouth providing nursery and day care for children with special needs since 2010. With attending rock concerts of increasingly aged bands, this doesn’t leave much time with my wife Emma.
Francoise Francoise is currently studying for her AAT Level 4 qualification, her main areas of work involve accounts production, VAT Returns and book-keeping. Outside of the office Francoise likes to stay active by playing pool and volunteering for charitable organisations. She also enjoys taking trips to the cinema and visiting a wide variety of different restaurants across Norwich.
Kelsie I do the admin for Abacus. In my spare time I like attending music festivals or spending my winters snowboarding. I also enjoy trying new places to eat!
Caroline Caroline specialises in the Financial Sector (Payroll, Legal-Cashiering & Non-Legal Accounts) gaining a wealth of experience, from working within the Building & Manufacturing Trade, Property Management and Solicitors Law Firms. Caroline is a keen horseperson, riding and training her horses with the Natural Horsemanship Techniques.
Holly I began working life in an agricultural accounts department before embarking on a career in the Civil Service as a Senior Procurement and Contract specialist. After a career break for my 2 children, I decided to study AAT, and then joined Abacus which I thoroughly enjoy and has provided me with a wealth of experience alongside my studies! As a local farmer's wife, playing pool at County level (and previously represented England which was a great honour I hope to achieve again some day), being a School Governor, and taking the children to carious activities I am exhausted each day.
Jodie I have worked predominantly in practice for over fifteen years. I am a MAAT member (Member of the Association of Accounting Technicians). I love to spend any free time exploring the Norfolk coastline with our young daughter and family. My passions are all things creative especially painting, photography, and music. I have a brown belt in Shotokan karate and a BA Honours in Fine Art.
Vicki Living in Poringland with my partner, three children, a dog and two spoilt bunnies. After working for HMSO as a customer service agent then as credit control officer in the finance department, I was fortunate to be a stay at home Mum for many years while running our family run carpet cleaning business, and now enjoy working at Abacus with the wide range of clients and love a challenge. I enjoy being a parent rep for the CCAA Norfolk & Suffolk Charity, working with NNUH to support families with children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), a role that involves being the voice of the families affected, supporting their journey, and being a positive role model.
