Catherine steps up for a new role

We’re delighted to announce that Catherine Edwards has been promoted to Director of Audit Services.

Catherine joined Richardson Swift as an Audit Manager in 2014 and has played a key role in overseeing the auditing processes on behalf of the firm’s business clients.

The Chartered Accountant, who lives in Bath, previously managed the audit team at Bath accountants Robson Taylor and was also an Audit Manager with national firm, Baker Tilly.

Commenting on her promotion, Catherine said: “Since joining Richardson Swift, I have enjoyed working closely with clients, including several who are new to the firm, and I look forward to building on these relationships as audit director.

“As well as statutory audits of financial statements, we also carry out audits of government grants, Solicitors Accounts Rules work and client money reports for residential letting agencies.

“As I am registered as an ATOL Reporting Accountant, we are also able to assist travel businesses with their returns to the CAA, which has been a growing area of work for us and one I’m really interested in.”

Jon Miles, Tax Director, adds: “Our warmest congratulations go to Catherine on her promotion. She has made a huge contribution to the firm and our clients over the years, ensuring that compliance requirements are met efficiently, whilst identifying areas where businesses can improve their internal systems to develop robust processes and controls.”
