Why Choose Us?


I spent my early career working with local accountants in Rugby, Daventry and Northampton. I initially qualified with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) before moving on to the professional exams with Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). I passed and qualified as an accountant in 2006.

Having passed the professional exams, my employer encouraged me to pursue the additional tax qualifications with the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CTA) which I passed in 2011.

It was in 2010 I decided to take the leap from full time employment into the unknown world of self-employment and ‘Willow Edge Accountancy & Taxation Limited’ was born.

I now have a portfolio of many lovely clients, ranging from the once a year tax returns to full Statutory Accounts for £4million turnover companies and everything in between.

My passion is start-ups and small businesses; I love helping them get to grips with the world of record keeping, budgeting for their next VAT or tax bill and generally being a sounding board for advice when they need it.

It is hard work starting up for the first time on your own, I’ve been there so I know what you are going through and together we can make the process just that little bit easier!

Thank you for visiting my website. If you would like to know more, please do get in touch. I would be happy to help you.

Caroline has been an invaluable support

Caroline’s expertise and support has been invaluable in helping my business grow. She’s been patient, communicative and personable – I would be completely lost without her advice! I’ve recommended her to many of my friends and I look forward to working with her in the future.

Caroline really has gone above and beyond our expectations

Willow Edge Accountancy have supported and advised us over several years and we would not use anyone else. Caroline initially helped with the setting up of our business and shared her knowledge of best practice with regards to bookkeeping and guided us through the process of using online accountancy software. She then filed the end of year tax returns on our behalf. As our business grew, she helped make the transfer from a sole trader to a limited company seamless and stress free. Caroline now take care of our VAT returns, payroll, year-end accounts and offers excellent professional advice throughout the year.

Caroline at Willow Edge Accountants has been absolutely incredible since I became a client of hers. She is always helpful and going that extra mile whenever I have a query or just need some extra support. Not only that, but she has saved me lots of money due to her guidance and support by explaining clearly where and how I can improve my business.
