Juggling parenthood with a career can be a struggle for anyone, but for two working mums who have just started their own accountancy practice, it’s actually a dream come true.
Accounting4contractors, based in Surrey, is the brainchild of Natasha Baker and Esther Guy who both worked together at recruitment firm Reed.
Having completed their accountancy qualifications to help keep their plumber and plasterer husband’s books in check, the pair decided last year to quit their high-powered jobs and start up in practice.
Both women have known each other for 20 years and have backgrounds in IT and financial advice.
Their new venture was officially launched in February this year - handily missing the hectic self assessment season - and provides services for contractors, freelancers and those self-employed.
