Brett McDonald - Team 1 Manager

Brett joined us seven years ago from another practice and quickly realised how different we went about doing things. Used to being reactive, the move to a proactive practice was a welcome move. Brett was amazed that we sent draft accounts to clients just weeks after their yearend, but now sees this as a minimum service level to be achieved.

Being our longest serving Team Manager, Brett has a breadth of experience which enables his team to provide a guide to contractors around the UK.  He is a member of both AAT & ATT as well as one of our IPSE Accredited Accountants.
