Embarking on the next step with Warrener Stewart

02 April 2020 • Warrener Stewart News

Warrener Stewart, like many private practices, offers trainee Chartered Accountant positions for graduates. 

Camilla Bole is their most recent trainee accountant who, already part way through her qualification, has joined the audit and accounts team.  Having graduated from Durham University in 2015 with a degree in Chemistry, Camilla decided to embark upon an accountancy career. Having stated her training with a mid-tier firm in London’s West End, Camilla joined Warrener Stewart’s Fulham based accountancy practice where she intends to complete her training.

“My chemistry degree taught me many transferrable skills which I use each day as a trainee accountant,” notes Camilla. “As a someone who loves order and talking to people becoming an accountant is a perfect fit for my skills. I am enjoying the responsibility of working directly with Warrener Stewart’s many clients helping to prepare their accounts and learning to conduct audits.”

After ten years of London life, Scottish born tax specialist Stuart Barbour yearned for the open spaces and rugged mountains of his homeland. Rather than leave Warrener Stewart the answer was to open a new office run by Stuart in Edinburgh.

As a corporate tax specialist Stuart has been supporting Warrener Stewart’s larger clients for the past five years working alongside Colin Edney and other corporate partners. Much of his work revolves around reviewing tax efficiencies within companies, assessing their structure or methods of trading. Since much of this is office-based Colin and the other partners were happy for Stuart to relocate to Scotland.

“Stuart is such an important asset to the business that we didn’t want to lose him,” declares Colin. The new office is on George Street, which as Stuart notes, is a quieter part of the busy Edinburgh city centre.

Stuart has now been joined by fellow Tax Advisor Jonny Henry, pictured above on the left, who started work in the new office this month.

“It’s been great to come back home” says Stuart. “I’m currently still focused on corporate tax, but the hope is that with Jonny joining me and with room for one more in the Edinburgh office we can move to a full tax and general offering in the near future.”

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.”

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.”
