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!”

Rugby under the lights at Rosslyn Park

13 May 2019 • Warrener Stewart News

In early May Warrener Stewart hosted friends old and new to an evening of first class rugby at the Rosslyn Park London Floodlit 7’s.

With the rugby season drawing to a close the weather served a timely reminder that summer is still a little way off, but this certainly didn’t dampen the action.

Through bouts of rain and setting sunshine everyone was treated to a fantastic display of thrilling, fast paced rugby 7’s from some of the best teams in the Premiership, Championship, National and University Leagues. After an extremely hard-fought competition, Harlequins were worthy winners, beating a Rosslyn Park 7 who certainly punched above their weight all evening.

“We are long standing supporters of Rosslyn Park” said Nick Morgan, joint managing director of Warrener Stewart. “Over the years we have brought our friends here many times and it never fails to entertain. It is a fantastic event just a stone’s throw from our Fulham home patch and provides a great opportunity for us to catch up with clients and celebrate the end of a long season with the Club.  As you can see, we couldn’t have been much closer to the action.”

Learning while earning at Warrener Stewart

17 April 2019 • Warrener Stewart News

Training on the job is a great way to learn. Each year Chartered Accountants and Chartered Tax Advisors, Warrener Stewart, offers employees training to become a tax specialist or Chartered Accountant. 

Colin Edney, joint managing director of Fulham’s Warrener Stewart explains: 

“Training on the job helps our employees translate theory into practice. Learning to adapt and react to real business situations while applying new knowledge helps our trainees become better accountants and tax advisors. 

“As part of our trainee programme we’ve welcomed Helena Mistry as a trainee Chartered Accountant and given Liz Henry the opportunity to move from her role as a PA to start training to become a tax advisor.” Helena Mistry & Liz Henry

Fresh from graduating with a degree in economics at Manchester University, Helena started out in marketing for a start-up business before deciding to put her numerical and analytical skills to use by becoming an accountant. 

“My short spell in marketing made me realise how much I missed problem solving and being involved with numbers!” says Helena. “I started looking for a varied role with the opportunity to liaise with business owners at a medium sized accountancy firm. Warrener Stewart has a great range of clients from a variety of sectors so I knew working there would appeal to me.” 

After nine years Liz Henry was ready to move from her demanding role supporting the directors to take up the challenge of training to become a tax specialist. 

“For the past nine years I’ve supported the tax department in a variety of ways. It seemed like a natural progression to grow my responsibilities and start studying for the ATT qualification,” says Liz. 

“Initially I’ll be working in personal tax, helping compile information for tax returns and liaising with HMRC about compliance issues. In November I’m taking my first exam to become a tax technician. I’m most looking forward to being involved in more client facing work once I’ve qualified.” 

By investing in their people Warrener Stewart is providing the best possible service to their clients.

Growing the tax department

02 January 2019 • Warrener Stewart News

The arrival of the new year once again heralds the deadline for self-assessment tax returns. In advance of January’s tax deadline and the last-minute rush to complete self assessment tax returns, Fulham based tax accountants, Warrener Stewart has recently recruited another chartered tax advisor, Caroline Stoclin.  

Following a four-year degree studying both French and English law at King’s College London and La Sorbonne, Caroline started work as a solicitor in Paris, where she worked for the prestigious multinational luxury goods conglomerate, LVMH. Upon moving to London to be with her family and raise her three young children, Caroline completed her training to qualify as a Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA).

It was during her degree course that Caroline decided to specialise in tax, enjoying the problem-solving aspect, alongside understanding regulatory compliance. Rather than working within a large corporation, Caroline wanted to join a company like Warrener Stewart who advise many SME’s and owner managed businesses.

“At Warrener Stewart I have the opportunity of liaising closely with clients and using my knowledge of corporation tax and VAT issues to help a wide variety of clients,” noted Caroline.
