Kara will actually admit that she loves audit work, strange even for a chartered accountant. Having trained as an auditor and having continued with the specialism since qualifying over ten years ago, Kara heads up our audit and accounts department undertaking audit work and other work similar to audit, such as SRA Accountant’s reports.
Kara has an extensive and varied portfolio and, although an auditor at heart, is an expert in the preparation of financial statements for limited companies, partnerships, charities and not for profit organisations. Her experience of different businesses over the years has furnished her with the perfect background for providing our clients with good quality and relevant business advice.
Kara sits on the ICAEW Practice Committee, which convenes in ICAEW headquarters in London, dealing with topical issues affecting members in practice in the UK and all over the world. Kara also sits on the South Wales District Society for Chartered Accountants.
Kara has two young children, which obviously doesn’t lend much time for a life or adequate sleep, but she manages to find time around the kids and work for open water swimming, having swam the English Channel in 2013. She also enjoys ‘normal’ swimming, cycling and jogging (running would be too strong a word) and has taken part in various half marathons. Wine is also a necessary favourite!
