Peter Hodgson & Co are a professional yet approachable and friendly firm of accountants whose aim is to provide all clients with an excellent level of service.
The firm has two partners, Aidan Smyth and Clare Snook. Both Aidan and Clare are very experienced in all aspects of accounting and taxation matters.
Unlike a lot of accountants in practice Aidan Smyth spent a considerable part of his career in industry which means he has ‘hands on’ experience of the day to day workings of the business and can therefore identify and empathise with all the problems faced by business people. Before taking over Peter Hodgson & Co in 2001, Aidan was previously a tax manager at PWC (formally Price Waterhouse) and dealt with complex pan European corporate tax and VAT compliance and planning. He is currently the firm’s Audit Partner and takes a keen interest in all forms of tax planning.
Clare has been with the firm since 2002 and has an excellent broad range of skills covering audit, accounts preparation, VAT, corporate and personal tax. While having gained considerable experience in auditing over the last 15 years, Clare now specialises in preparing accounts for small limited companies, sole traders and partnerships and complex personal and corporate tax returns. She also has extensive experience in VAT and Payroll matters.
The firm is an approved employer and are accredited to train ACCA students to membership and registered auditor status.
