We are proud to say that we won’t speak “Accountanise” at you! We want you to understand your numbers and so we will explain them clearly to you so that you have clarity over your finances.

Melanie Curtis

CEO / Founder

I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant almost 24 years ago! I started my accounting career in industry, lastly as a Financial Controller for a printing company some 20+ years ago, so I know all about running finances for larger businesses and the challenges that they have.

After having my first child I moved from industry into practice and worked for traditional accountancy firms working with small and medium sized businesses.

Around 15+ years ago I decided to start my own accountancy business as I wanted to offer something refreshingly different to business owners. My vision was to give a superb service to my clients, one that is friendly and reliable and not starchy and staid like other traditional (boring!) accountancy practices. I have a relaxed and friendly style and like to speak plain English to clients and not technical jargon. I truly believe that it’s so important that business owners have an understanding of their numbers, accounting is not a black art as some people believe it to be!

Over the years I have built up a fantastic very loyal client base (many of whom have been with me since day 1!), a brilliant team and we have gone from offering normal accountancy services to a full wrap around service for clients enabling them to reach their true business and personal potential.

15 years on I still love what I do! I am passionate about enabling business owners to reach their true potential and so build better businesses. Nowadays I also run accountability coaching sessions for clients as well as Business Development events.

Nothing stays the same around here! I am always looking at ways to improve and innovate and so drive all of our businesses forward and to success.

Personally, I love long hot sunny days! I love spending time with my family and socialising with friends. I like to travel when I can and also, I like growing my own vegetables!
