Meet the Team

Rachel Roberts

Chartered Accountant and Managing Director
Rachel trained with Coopers and Lybrand in the Business Services Group in Manchester and London, way back when, dealing with the full range of clients and providing the whole service from sole trader accounts to limited company accounts, personal tax, corporation tax and business strategy.

She has been running her own practice for twenty years whilst bringing up four children. Now they are all older she has an opportunity to build the practice.

Clients see her as part of their team – she has a mantra – “tell me before you do it” – most of them get that!

Outside work Rachel loves the theatre – both attending and performing, and she is the Chair of a local academy trust.

Becca Learmonth

Office Manager
Becca runs the office and provides much of the administration support. She takes responsibility for filing the annual confirmation statements and other Company Secretarial roles. Becca is very efficient and takes the hassle out of having an office. It is Becca who will usually be your first port of call on the phone. She also is responsible for our social media.

Becca enjoys the theatre and is actively involved in her children’s schools.

Faye Meakin

Accounts Administrator
Faye is an experienced bookkeeper and loves a challenge. She has superb attention to detail and keeps the practice books as well as taking responsibility for a number of clients. Faye also administers the payrolls.

Faye also runs a well established groundworks company with her husband, and has two young children. She plays netball and enjoys a good read.

Debra Williams

Accounts Assistant
Debra has worked with Rachel for over 11 years – and therefore deserves a medal!! She keeps the books for a number of clients – often for the “carrier bag” jobs which she works through methodically.

Debra has two older children and is enjoying the late night Thursdays when she returns home to a delicious dinner cooked by her son!

Mim Roberts

Office Assistant
Mim is generally on duty when Becca is not, so she may well answer the phone to you in the afternoons. As the youngest member of the team she is our “go to“ person for all things technological – you know the missive – “if you don’t know – ask someone under 20”! She is a whiz at all things “Powerpoint”!

She also keeps the office looking lovely – a source of pride and worry to her!

Outside this work she has another job as a receptionist and is studying an Open College course on Interior Design. And she has an absolute passion for dance and performance.

Debbie Searle

Accounts Administrator

Debbie is qualified to AAT Level 4 and has many years experience as a bookkeeper and is a Quickbooks Advanced Proadviser. Her strengths lie in her forensic attention to detail and her persistence in getting to the bottom of transactions. She has responsibility for a couple of our larger clients as well as being a dab hand at generating sole trader accounts.

Debbie enjoys the theatre and has responsibility for the office orchid which is an outstanding specimen!


Office Dog
Gorgeous Cockapoo – essential member of team – any stress relieved by taking him for a walk or stroking him.

Outside this work he keeps Rachel’s family amused!
