Making the right move

28 February 2020 • US Tax returns, Warrener Stewart News

When his parents brought him on holiday to England aged 11, American born Steven Wright declared then and there he would one day return and work in London. Over the past eighteen years Steven has been working and studying in America to make his dream come true!

Now as a qualified CPA (Certified Public Accountant), Steven has joined Warrener Stewart’s US tax department where he is looking forward to helping both British and American clients with their US tax filing requirements.

American CPA joins Warrener Stewart

“The very first time I came to the UK I begged my parents to leave me here – thankfully they encouraged me to return home and take a more conventional route so that I could return,” confesses Steven.

Back home in Nashville Steven studied for a degree in Business Administration, Accounting and Finance at Lipscomb University. Whilst studying for his degree he also worked as a bank teller for a local bank, Sun Trust before completing his Masters in Accounting. As part of his Masters Steven completed two internships; one as a tax advisor for a large independent accounting firm, KraftCPA. Whilst the second was spent learning about corporation tax working for the retail giant Genesco.

Commenting upon the appointment, head of US tax, Damian Talbot said; “Having an American CPA based with us in our London offices is a rarity, he can help and advice US expats with their US tax filings. Being able to offer this service face to face is a welcome addition to our busy and growing US tax department.”

Current vacancy for an Accounts Assistant

13 January 2020 • Warrener Stewart News

We have a great opportunity to embark upon a career in accountancy by joining us in our thriving Fulham based practice as an Accounts Assistant.

The role is an ideal way to study whilst working full time, as we will additionally provide study support either to start AAT training or to complete an AAT qualification.

“Studying for this practical accountancy qualification, whist being part of busy accountancy practice, is the perfect way to appreciate and understand more about the accounting industry and to start a career without the requirement to hold a degree” notes senior Principal Gary Chapman.

To apply for the role, candidates should send a CV together with a covering letter addressed to Gary Chapman by email to gchapman@warrenerstewart.com.

We would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas

This year we have chosen to support the Royal Trinity Hospice (Charity No. 1013945) in memory of our colleague Demi Brindley who tragically passed away earlier this year following a desperate battle against ovarian cancer.

Demi was so positive and professional throughout her illness that many were completely unaware of her plight.  Her sudden loss was a huge shock and her sunny, cheerful presence is missed enormously.

In her last weeks, Demi was cared for with great compassion by the incredible team at Royal Trinity, who provide skilled, palliative and end of life care to over 2,500 patients every year for those living in central and south west London. Since the care they give is free of charge we wanted to give our support to them rather than sending Christmas cards.

Counting on making a difference at Warrener Stewart

06 November 2019 • Warrener Stewart News

It was the lure of auditing that led part qualified ACCA accountant student Thandie Sambana to join Warrener Stewart.  

Having started her accountancy training with a small two partner firm advising many self-employed clients, Thandie wanted to broaden her experience and work more closely with SME’s. When an opportunity arose to continue her training to become a Certified Accountant with Fulham based accountants, Warrener Stewart, who specialise in advising owner managed companies, she leapt at the chance. 

“From my studies and work experience one of the aspects of studying to be an accountant that I found really rewarding is auditing,” says Thandie. “Joining Warrener Stewart gives me the opportunity to be able to assist on more audits and to use my analytical skills.” 

As registered auditors Warrener Stewart regularly audit medium sized companies whose turnover exceeds the new audit thresholds. Audit and accounts assistants like Thandie will work alongside an audit manager to help source information and prepare the accounts, before they are reviewed by one of the Principals. 

Commenting on Thandie’s appointment, Colin Edney said: “Despite the change to the auditing thresholds we still carry out many audits and we need inquisitive people like Thandie. We feel there is great value to be gained from the rigour of auditing allowing us to provide assurance to clients about their businesses.”

Fulham based Warrener Stewart provides a range of accountancy services including financial reporting, bookkeeping, audit and payroll. To ensure they continue to provide expert advice the Accountancy team has employed Andrea. Having recently moved to London from the Wirral, where she worked for a small accountancy practice, Andrea is enjoying her new role working closely with small to medium sized businesses.

For the past four years Andrea has worked as a qualified AAT assistant accountant. She is currently part way through her ACCA studies to become a Certified Accountant.

Like Andrea, Laura is also continuing her studies having joined Warrener Stewart as a tax assistant working with their US tax team. She holds a degree in Business Administration in Accounting from Florida Atlantic University and is currently completing a Master’s degree in Investment and Risk Finance at University of Westminster.

Laura has an in-depth knowledge of the US tax system, having lived in the US where she worked as a staff accountant. Alongside her masters she is also completing her studies to become an Enrolled Agent.

“We are really pleased that both Laura and Andrea have chosen to further their careers at Warrener Stewart,” says joint managing director Colin Edney. “They both understand how small businesses operate and appreciate the level of support business owners require to help them make informed business decisions.

Our US tax team is making good use of Laura’s in depth knowledge of the US tax system to assist its clients with their US tax responsibilities.”

Warrener Stewart rounds up for a night of interdepartmental rivalry

02 July 2019 • Warrener Stewart News

Every summer the accountancy and tax staff at Warrener Stewart take advantage of the longer summer nights to hold their annual inter-department Rounders Competition.

This year’s event took place on Eel Brook Common, the park opposite their offices in Fulham. Organised by the Accounts department, this was a battle of three teams. Accounts fielded a team of seven to take on the mighty eight from the personal tax department, whilst the US tax team grafted in additional ‘legs’ to field a unified team of eight.

Once rules and boundaries had been established, including the arbitrary argument over final decisions and what constituted a no ball, the first innings were won by Accounts. But the title of overall winners went to the personal tax team, whose star player Ryan O’Connor contributed to three of ten rounders.

Despite co-opting two fellow directors into the US Tax team, the addition of Nick Morgan and Gary Chapman, sadly had little bearing on their final score of 5.5 rounders. Whilst the agile accounts team tried valiantly to match the might of the big tax hitters, scoring a total of 9 rounders.

Keeping a close eye on proceedings and taking the role of bowler for the Accounts team, Colin Edney commented; “It was a very competitive match and a great way of enjoying some inter-department rivalry accompanied by light refreshments!

The Accounts team is already strategically planning for next year’s rematch, when we hope to knock it out of the park!”
