I started my accounting journey in 1983 as a finance manager, I was in charge of the finance function for a £40m turnover operating company managing 25 staff. I stayed here until 2004, I then moved on to various roles including a director and financial controller. I started Andrew Parker Associates Limited in 2010 when I bought another accounting firm, since I’ve had this office I have managed to increase my client base from 100 to around 500 businesses and individuals.
I have been working at Andrew Parker Associates since 2016 having started my accountancy training (AAT) in 2010. My day to day role covers many aspects of the practise including bookkeeping, payroll support, accounts preparation, credit control and dealing with client queries. I am originally from Russia but moved over to the UK in 2005.

After a 25 year career with Barclays Bank I left to become a part-time book-keeper for a local business, as part of this role I managed payroll for over 20 full and part time staff. Andrew offered me the opportunity in 2020 to also work within his busy office to provide dedicated payroll and related administrative services to his clients. My role includes providing regular payroll administration, pension auto-enrolment and helping our clients navigate the government Furlough scheme.
