My role in helping clients to set up and and operate sucessfully in the UK and worldwide is both interesting and rewarding.

I love working with clients to ensure their accounting and payroll requirements are met and to help with any concerns or queries they may have. I joined Blick Rothenberg in 2018 after a very varied time in audit, industry and practice, working with all types of companies, from SMEs to multi-billion internationally focussed entities. After qualifying as a chartered accountant I spent 10 years in different roles at News Corp before moving back to practice, focussing on full service (tax, accounts, bookkeeping, personal tax) for a portfolio of clients before my move to Blick Rothenberg.

During my first 4 years at Blick Rothenberg I was head of the payroll department as well as carrying out my role as Director in International Outsourcing, which means I am able to assist in all matters relating to becoming an employer in the UK as well as setting up accounting systems, VAT and management accounting. I work with a large variety of clients from smaller start ups, cost plus subsidiaries of internationally headquartered companies and fully trading companies. As a German speaker my focus is mostly on the DACH region but I also work with many clients based in North America and across the rest of the world. My clients are in fintech, pharmaceuticals and software, as well as the manufacturing and food and drink industries. I work closely with other departments within Blick Rothenberg to provide a seamless service to my clients, drawing on expertise in all areas of accounting and tax.
