James Hayes FCCA

James qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant with a top 20 national firm and has been in practice now for over 25 years.

James joined us in 2011, after building up a successful client base on the South Coast. His portfolio is varied but with a strong emphasis on owner managed business in retail, manufacturing and leisure.

He aims to to deliver a highly personal service to his clients. He recognises that accounts and returns can be a chore for some, by contrast to some accountancy firms he seeks to add value in all that he does and not to just churn out the numbers.

At the very heart of it all is a strong belief in the commitment to providing the necessary continued support and proactive advice to help and assist his clients to succeed.

He is a past non- executive director of the Salisbury Playhouse, a keen Cricketer and a poor golfer who tries hard.

Occasionally he finds time to concentrate on renovating his old cottage.
