Audrey "The Know It All" Goodchild
Director of Accountancy & Business Matters Ltd + resident Tax guru (ATT ACPA DMS)

Business is a very important part of Audrey’s life and she is never happier than when juggling several projects at once! She is an entrepreneur through and through with the passion, enthusiasm and motivation you would expect from somebody with over 30 years of experience of successfully running, consulting and advising businesses across a wide range of industries. She prides herself on working closely with her clients and getting “under the skin” of their business. She is a highly knowledgeable individual, who is able to think outside the box and yet remain sensible and considered.

Audrey is qualified with the Association of Certified Public Accountants, The Association of Tax Technicians and holds a Diploma in Management.

Laura "The Boss" Preston
Accountancy Manager (MAAT)

You may think she is bossy, you may call her competitive but Audrey would call her efficient with outstanding organisational and managerial skills that keep the office running like a well-oiled machine. She is always on hand to assist and support all of the team, sharing knowledge and providing our clients with the highest possible level of service.

Laura is a very driven individual and this is shown in her horsemanship, with her show-jumping at a fiercely competitive level where she regularly wins rosettes and prize money with both of her horses London and Darcie.

She is qualified with the Association of Accounting Technicians.

Sam "The Princess" Harris
Accounts Technician / Payroll Supervisor (AAT)

Sam is extremely bubbly and great fun and she brightens up our office on a daily basis. Whatever is going on and however busy she is, she remains steady, efficient and reliable when looking after her clients. She has a cool head and extremely broad shoulders.

Sam is a very competitive person outside of work and regularly competes in endurance challenges for fun. She seems to be at her happiest when exhausted and covered in mud from charging about the countryside for 10km! She loves to keep fit and performs well as part of a team.

Sam is qualified with the Association of Accounting Technicians.

Katie "The Geek" Osborn
Accounts Technician (BA)

Katie is a lovely gentle person who is very sensitive and always aims to please. She will take on any challenge and is Audrey’s problem-solver.

Katie loves to learn and has nearly completed her studies for her Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) exams and is planning to go on afterwards and study tax. Audrey thinks this is great news as in the future she may actually be able to step back and do less work so that she can spend more time with her family. Speaking of her family, Katie is very close to hers and spends much of her spare time either travelling to see them or shopping.

She is qualified with an Accounting Degree and is currently studying for her ACCA.

Sam "The Mum" Saxby
Administration & Personal Assistant

Sam is the face of the business and with her cheerful and bubbly personality will always help you when you call or pop into the office. She is the linchpin of the office, anticipating the needs of the clients and her colleagues alike.

Sam is concerned that we are all well fed and have what we need to get through the day and we are sure her son, who recently started school, receives the same treatment – lucky boy! She'll be the first person that you meet or speak to when you contact us. She is responsible for client liaison, office and facilities management as well as her PA duties.

Sam is a qualified PRINCE 2 Practitioner.

Daisy "The Payroll Guru"
Payroll Administrator

Daisy is the newest member of our team and has fitted in perfectly. She contributes well to the overall office efficiency and she provides an excellent payroll service to our clients. She is our resident guru in Auto Enrolment Pensions. She is fun and bubbly and makes us all laugh, and helps us to get through the day.

Daisy adores her dog and loves to go out and have fun, when not studying.

She is currently studying for her Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT).

Accountancy & Business Matters holds a practising certificate with the Association of Certified Public Accountants and we are also a member of the Sage Accountants Club, allowing our staff to be qualified by Sage, our staff are all qualified or training to be qualified.
