Emma May and Ryan Millward have been friends since 2009 and decided to set up their practice in 2014. With Emma's audit background and Ryan's small to medium sized business expertise they are the perfect business match.
Emma has prepared and reviewed company accounts of varying sizes throughout her career having trained at Deloitte. More recently she has broadened her remit into personal taxation and advises on technical areas such as the the ever-changing rental property tax rules and tax implications of UK residents moving abroad.
Ryan has built up an extensive knowledge of the UK tax system as well as providing accounting and taxation services to limited companies across a wide range of industries. He specialises in the construction industry scheme (CIS) and assisting his clients with cloud solutions, among other things.
Their individual skill sets complement each other and they both have energy and enthusiasm for getting the best for their clients.
