Claire Priestley

Director

I am passionate about cloud accounting, streamline systems and removing the hassle for business owners, whether a small one director business or where there are many employees, directors and investor funding. I specifically enjoy working on the tax side of things, in particular industry specific solutions such as R&D tax credits, artists averaging and for-ex.

Prior to setting up Clarand I have worked within the Corporate Tax department of a multinational firm dealing with statutory accounts, foreign exchange, corporation tax, and VAT for UK and overseas companies.

I also worked in practice primarily dealing with owner-managed businesses in respect of their accounts and tax affairs. I have vast experience in training on Excel, Powerpoint, and Word, and putting cost efficient systems and process in place.

Director

I am a huge foodie and therefore love supporting our restaurant, deli/cafe and pub clients, whether new business or established. I work closely with clients from preparing ongoing management accounts and VAT returns, through to budgets and cash forecasting maybe for expansion, funding or a new venture. I also train and assist clients with their in- house accounting products such as Sage, Xero and Freeagent.

Prior to setting up Clarand I worked in private practice at two national accountancy firms. I have over thirteen years experience dealing with accounts, tax, audit, management accounts and VAT for small and medium sized businesses. In particular I trained both internally and externally on accounting software.
