Meet the team
Emma – Owner / Director
Emma originally studied Psychology then moved into the world of accountancy – an interesting combination! You’ll always be greeted with a smile of enthusiasm from Emma, she loves getting under the skin of a business, streamlining accounting processes, improving tax efficiency, leaving the owner to get on and run their business! Emma is hands on, and with the team works on all areas of accounts preparation, taxation, tax planning and new company start-ups. When not in the office and when the sun’s out you’ll probably find Emma in a boat in and around Orford Ness. Or come rain or shine walking with her loyal Labrador, Rusty.
Megan – Director and Account Manager

Megan specialises in small Limited Companies and personal tax offering advice to clients on areas such as profit extraction, rental accounts, new start-ups, disposal of residential properties and everything in between. Megan’s also a bit of a shop-a-holic but running round after her young family often puts a stop that.

Sharlette – Accounts Preparation / Payroll Clerk
Sharlette looks after most of the monthly bookkeeping and VAT preparation at Pinfold & Co as well as running regular payrolls.
