Zoe Johnson tells us more about her role as an Accounts Manager here at The Accountancy Partnership.

Give an overview of the duties, functions, and responsibilities of your job.

Managing my own portfolio of clients, this includes answering any queries clients have, helping them with tax efficiency, completing accounts, tax returns, and vat returns for them.

What is a typical working day like for you?

I start my day by checking my emails from clients and responding to them. I then look at any urgent deadlines approaching, whether this is accounts or vat returns, and personal tax returns.

What particular challenges do you regularly encounter?

Tax legislation regularly changes, which can make our jobs challenging at times and we have to ensure we are up to date at all times to ensure we are giving our clients the correct information.

What are some of the biggest challenges faced by your clients?

COVID destroyed a lot of businesses, or made it very hard for businesses to continue – some are only just recovering.

How are you able to use your skills to solve problems for them?

Unfortunately, COVID was out of everyone’s control, but we try to guide them in the best way we can to help them recover.

What is your favourite part of the job?

I enjoy helping clients and making their life a little easier

What do you like most about working for The Accountancy Partnership?

We are one big team; everyone is so friendly here and will always help each other. Plus, we get so many treats… not great for dieting though!

What skills do you find most useful to do your job?

Organisational skills. Working in accounts, we constantly have various deadlines and need to be able to manage them effectively to ensure everything is submitted on time.

Where’s your favourite place to visit on days off?

The countryside – I love a mountain, waterfall, or anywhere with nice views

Tell us about your proudest achievement.

It’s got to be becoming a mum. Proudest and happiest moment, and I doubt anything will trump that.

How would your colleagues describe you?

Approachable, friendly, and weird (all based of me eating my pizza with a knife and fork, and enjoying the rain – not all at the same time)

What are you reading/binge watching at the moment?

Grey’s Anatomy – love it! Never laughed and cried so much, all in the space of an hour.

Who do you admire, and why?

One of my friends, Kath. She seems to have got the balance of life right, good mum, good wife, good friend, and enjoys life to the fullest. It’s not an easy balance to achieve.

What question would you really like to answer, and what’s the answer?!

Should spaghetti Bolognese be in a tin? If it’s Heinz, mostly certainly yes!
