The Team at Perrys Accountants in Wrotham
I lead the team at our Wrotham office, acting for a wide ranging portfolio of clients, but predominantly owner managed businesses. I specialise in advising clients in all aspects of Buy-To-Let Taxation, acting for property investors across the UK. I also look after clients in the medical sector, including overseeing the preparation of GP Practice Accounts and the personal taxation for healthcare professionals.
I have been with Perrys for over 20 years, and following a period of juggling a career with raising a young family, became a partner in 2010. At Perrys, our aim is to build long term client relationships, and I am proud to be part of such a successful firm, that, through hard work, goes from strength to strength.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending quality time with my family – ‘just being mum’, and on the rare occasion that I have time to myself, my passions are reading and listening to music.
My name is Gareth Bridgland and I am the office manager at our Wrotham branch. I have been with Perrys since 2006, having previously trained with another firm, and have experience in all aspects of accountancy, audit & taxation. I have worked closely over the years with Donna McCreadie and have built up extensive knowledge of medical accounts and property taxation. In addition, I have recently completed my final Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) examinations, and am now the firm’s tax specialist. I am focused on providing our clients with the best possible service and most efficient tax planning and advice.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my wife Amy and baby daughter Rose. I also enjoy socialising with friends and watching & training in football and mixed martial arts.
