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.
