I’m James and I’m very proud to say that I’ve been an accountant and tax adviser for over 15 years.
I graduated with a BA in Mathematics & Computation at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, then did a MSc in Computational Statistics at the University of Bath.
I joined Coopers & Lybrand in September 1996 and won national prizes at all levels of training before qualifying in 1999.
I set up my own accountancy practice in December 2009 and it has expanded significantly since then. I provide all accountancy and taxation services and am a specialist in the owner-managed sector.
When I’m not working hard on accounts and tax returns, I like to spend time with my family. We enjoy eating out, go-karting and exotic holiday locations (usually Tenby!) where we can relax on the beach and go swimming.
My best sporting days are now behind me, but I still try to play football, snooker and darts with my son.
To chill out I like watching TV – mainly Sky Sports, Coronation Street, You’ve Been Framed! and repeats of Baywatch and the Benny Hill Show. I’m a big fan of Jessica Fletcher and have every episode of Murder She Wrote on tape.
I’m Amie Caldwell and I joined James Westacott ACA in June 2014.
I work mainly on owner managed businesses. I have experience in bank and credit card reconciliations, purchase and sales invoicing, cash handling, trial balances and preparation of accounts.
During school I completed GCSE Maths 7 months early and then went on to pass Money and Finance Skills Level 2. I have got my AAT Level 2 qualification and preparing to start the AAT level 3 qualification.
Outside the office I enjoy keeping fit at the gym, socialising, bingo (although I haven’t won the jackpot yet!), watching TV (Hollyoaks, Prison Break and Vampire Diaries) and experiencing different parts of the world during vacation.
I’m Courtney Astill and I started working for James in February 2016, so I’ve just celebrated my 1 year anniversary!
During school I passed 15 GCSEs, including Maths, English, and an A* in IT. I am currently attending college to complete my AAT course.
Outside the office, I I enjoy spending with my friends and family, eating in restaurants, watching TV (Corrie, EastEnders and vampire diaries) and shopping.
Hi, my name is Gemma Wemyss.
