Who Is Louise Smith?

After completing my full Chartered Institute of Management Accountant qualification in 2008 I have applied my learning in a variety of roles and industries. I have held numerous positions in accountancy roles over the past 17 years, including positions in Retail and Manufacturing sectors.

I have been self-employed for the past four years, as a direct result I fully understand the demands of setting up your own business and making it successful. 

At the moment, my portfolio of clients includes contractors, subcontractors, electricians, hairdressers, decorators, railway engineers, landlords, consultancy firms and sports professionals to name but a few. As I am a limited company myself, I am able to be agile with my approach to providing my services to clients and eachclient is treated completely as an individual, not just another numbered firm on a corporate list.

Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my children and my husband. I’d like to say I have an endless list of hobbies but anyone with young kids and their own business knows it doesn’t leave time for anything else.


Our business started three years ago and we entrusted the services of a large accountancy practice that was recommended to us. Unfortunately they made a complete mess of our accounts, forgot VAT runs, errors with payroll, mis-information etc so we needed to find someone local to us we could trust. After some searching, we found Louise, a meeting was setup and we agreed the scope of works. It was clear from the start that Louise was honest and straight talking, just what we needed. Our accounts were in a terrible state thanks to the previous accountants but Louise tenaciously worked through them for over 2 months, reconciling everything to the point we knew exactly where we were. Since then, she has implemented effective monthly management reporting which has allowed us to grow the business in year 2-3 by at least 80% over the previous year - we could not have done this without effective accounting. Louise now does our monthly accounts, management reports, VAT returns, weekly credit control and payroll. She also advises us on anything relevant to our business and I would not hesitate in recommending her services to any other small business that needs a reliable accountant.
