New Senior Manager Appointed at MHA Carpenter Box
To support their growing client base, MHA Carpenter Box has appointed Sarah Baker as a Senior Manager within the Business Services Group.
Sarah qualified as a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) in 2005, before moving on to become a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in 2009; she became a fellow of the ACCA in 2014.
Sarah has gained a vast experience in audit and accounting work since joining the profession over 15 years ago, having worked for both Kreston Reeves and Haines Watts Chartered Accountants in Brighton.
In her new role with MHA Carpenter Box, Sarah will focus on working with sole traders and owner-managed businesses of all sizes, helping them to increase their profitability and improve their tax efficiency. On a day-to-day basis, this can mean dealing with anything from VAT returns to Corporation Tax, in addition to accounting and tax planning activities.
Sarah is thrilled with her new appointment, commenting: “I’m delighted to be appointed as a Senior Manager at MHA Carpenter Box, which has an excellent reputation in the industry. I enjoy keeping busy and the Business Services Group is certainly thriving acting for a lot of clients from a wide range of business sectors. There is also a good buzz in the office with great teamwork, making it a very enjoyable place to work.”
Sarah lives in Worthing so she no longer has a lengthy commute to work each day, which is important to her as she keeps busy with her four-year-old son. In her spare time, she is a fitness fanatic, attending classes and enjoying running on a regular basis.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. 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. "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
