About me

Although I am a chartered accountant by profession, my main interest is in software and technology - in particular how it can be used to make businesses work smarter and more profitably.

In 1995 I resigned as one of four partners in an independent accountancy firm to set-up my own firm, Pearson & Associates based in Skipton, North Yorkshire.

At various times I have also been part-time finance director of 2 other businesses - Taskmaster, a staff agency, and Merit Software, a payroll and invoicing software developer.

I founded, and manage, the Xero Users Online Community, which is a resource for users of the online accounting software.

My latest projects have been Ledgerscope and Movemybooks. Ledgerscope is automatic client records checking and correction software for accountants. Movemybooks is an online data conversion service, for businesses moving from Sage to Xero.

Happily married to Julie, I am 46 and live in West Yorkshire with a 15 year old son and 2 and a half year old golden retriever. We have 4 other adult boys who float in and out as their social life permits.

(Ages all as of October 2011).

I am available for interesting consulting work.

Please get in touch if you think I can help you.​
