Helen White BA Hons - Director
I achieved my degree in business in 1995 and have spent 11 years working in Accounts in small owner managed businesses. I appreciate how difficult it can be for small businesses. Not only do they have to work extremely hard to grow, but they also have to work hard to keep up with all the legislation. At APH Accountants Ltd we understand what an uphill battle many small businesses face and as such we aim not just to churn out some numbers for our clients but to actually add value to their business. We can take care of all our client needs from the initial start up to finish.
