During his career Maurice has also worked for one of the UK’s top five accountancy firms and his technical ability has been put to good practical use during a stint as a Financial Controller for a company within the care industry.
Carpenter Box opened its Gatwick office in June 2015 and has been welcomed into the business community to the point that it is now accelerating its plans for growth, to meet the demand for its services. Maurice will be focusing on owner-managed businesses of all sizes helping to increase their profitability and improve their tax efficiency.

I am well established in the business community, so I believe that I am in a good position to help the firm with its ambitious growth strategy and I relish the opportunity to be part of that journey.”

It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
