Phil Dawson

I am a fully qualified chartered certified accountant with the ACCA, and have worked with Phil for many years, and with Dawson and Co since it was established. I have over 20 years experience in accountancy, with over 10 of these working alongside Phil. I have had a lot of experience with Limited Companies and all other types of owner managed businesses. IRIS, SAGE, QuickBooks are all packages I have used and thoroughly enjoyed and am fully compliant with, to name just a few. I feel it is very important that clients are kept happy, up to date, and I will always do my upmost to ensure that all clients’ needs are met.
