Having won the prestigious Tax Prize from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and worked in London-based accountancy firms, Emily Bridges (formerly Emily Prior) started Re:Accounts in 2009. This gave her the freedom to concentrate on her specialist areas (tax planning, commercial and sole trader accounts) as well as her passion for international tax.
Emily believes that numbers are important and people matter. She says: “I believe in keeping it real, so Re:Accounts is a team of down-to-earth specialists with no accountancy-speak or stuffy emails. I live and breathe numbers, instinctively saving money for our clients. The most enjoyable part of my role is talking to the people I work with.”
Emily adds: “At Re:Accounts we are proudly proactive, thorough and approachable. I want to help your business to be a success. Success can mean growth and expansion; some clients work internationally. Or you may be a winner by starting your business whilst arriving at school on time. I love working with energetic business owners and individuals, maximising your potential and minimising your tax. Let’s talk!”
