The North-West Kent and South-East London areas are both vibrant business hubs with Orpington at their heart. The latest Perrys branch to open is in Roberts Mews, a small cul-de-sac located just off Orpington High Street, opposite to the entrance to the Walnuts Shopping Centre.
The Team at Perrys Accountants in Orpington
I am a Chartered and Certified accountant with qualifications from both the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). I joined Perrys in 1999 having trained and qualified with a smaller practice in South East London.
As well as advising a wide range of clients on accounts, audit and tax issues, I head up the corporate finance team advising on acquisitions and disposals of businesses.
I am passionate about cooking and when I am not either in the office or in the kitchen I try to spend a bit of time playing tennis and squash and being childish with my two young sons.
I started working for Perrys in 1999, working at the Wrotham office from raw trainee to office manager and I have now moved to our new Orpington office to support Steve in this new adventure. I have dealt with a wide range of clients from sole traders to multi-national companies in my time with the company.
Away from the office I enjoy playing competitive league badminton for a local club and spending time with my family, walking, gardening and watching most sports.
I joined Perrys in July 2015 having trained and qualified with a firm Tunbridge Wells. I gained my ACCA qualification in February 2012. I have over 7 years experience dealing with owner managed businesses across a broad number of industries.
I am passionate about raising money for a number of charities and in the last few years I have completed the London to Brighton bike ride, the moonwalk, the Tunbridge Wells bike ride and the Yorkshire three peaks challenge.
I joined Perrys in July 2012 after completing my A-Levels for which I studied Business, Geography and ICT. I thoroughly enjoy my role here at Perrys as no two tasks are the same. I am currently working towards the ACCA qualification in the hope of becoming a certified accountant. During my free time I enjoy a round of golf … weather permitting of course!
I joined Perrys in January 2015. Previously I worked within the NHS for seven years, my final post working in the Finance department covered a range of duties involving charitable funds, fixed assets, capital programmes and various payroll deductions. I qualified with the AAT in March 2014 becoming a member (MAAT) in September 2014. I am currently a trainee within the firm and am studying towards the ACCA qualification.
In my spare time I like to take part in various activities, including most sports (mainly football), raising money for charity, going to the cinema and listening to music.
I am a secretary at Perrys based at Orpington branch. I really enjoy my busy role, providing support and working as part of the great Orpington team. When I am not at work, I relax by spending time with my family and friends, walking my dog, running and shopping!
Perrys Orpington is headed up by ‘local boy’ Steve Hale who is delighted to have returned to his South East London roots. (Steve began his career in Chislehurst and Sidcup before moving away from the area.) As a Perrys director, Steve is responsible for the overall running of the Orpington Branch. Steve is also a renowned expert in corporate finance and a provisional member of the Expert Witness Institute.
Steve is ably assisted by his enthusiastic and proactive team:
Doug Shanks, the manager. He is responsible for the day to day work in the branch. Doug assists Steve and oversees and supports Tom, Greg and Dane. Doug is responsible for tax affairs and other statutory compliance. Tom Kirkham is our senior accountant responsible for accounts and audit and tax work and is Doug’s right hand man!
Greg Jones is our accounts trainee. A highly enthusiastic school-leaver, keen to learn the dark art of accountancy!
Dane Beard is our newest additional to the accounting team.
Because Perrys Orpington is a new branch, we are looking forward to welcoming our existing clients whilst also building relationships with new customers. As a team we have many years’ experience, gained through working with a diverse range of businesses from start ups and established SMEs to blue chip brands. Irrespective of your size, if you’re looking for a friendly, experienced and intelligent accounting team, give us a call. We will be very pleased to talk with you.
Are you considering moving from your existing accountant? Or is this perhaps the first time you’ve considered using the services of an accountant? Then why not book a complimentary meeting with us? Look upon this meeting as an opportunity to ask all those accounting questions you’ve been storing up, and to receive detailed answers and advice from one of our accounting and business experts. And this advice will be bespoke to your business and your situation too. We will identify any areas in which we can potentially save you money – not simply by reducing your tax burden today, but also by reviewing any capital gains and inheritance tax implications in the future. After the meeting you will receive from us a no obligation, fixed fee quotation for running your accounting affairs.
