Stephen’s journey in accountancy started in 2005 when he left school and started an apprenticeship – getting his AAT qualification in 2009. He went on to get the ACCA qualification; however, after working for a couple of practices, he decided to start Adderley, Hill & Co in 2013.
Since then, the business has grown steadily. Stephen has used the knowledge he gained in his previous jobs to introduce a proactive, forward-thinking ethos in the firm. Fee transparency has always been important to him, which is why Adderley, Hill & Co predominantly work on fixed fees rather than on a time basis.
Currently, Stephen is responsible for bringing new clients on board, overseeing the accounts team and deals with the day to day running of the business. He enjoys working closely with clients to ensure they can achieve their goals (business or personal) in the most tax-efficient manner.
Stephen is also involved in business development with clients to improve the financial function to make the running of their businesses smoother.
