Lorraine's background is in management accountancy, which is often described as business accountancy. She set up an accountancy business, Simply Additions Ltd, and started trading in 2006 following many years of working for North East businesses in the manufacturing and service industry. She is passionate about helping businesses to get started and develop into profitable, sustainable legacies. Through the use of technology, QuickBooks Online and tax, Lorraine helps Simply Additions's customers to improve their business success. From her humble beginnings of working from home, the business now employs 6 people and looks after nearly 200 customers.
Lorraine's previous experience working for larger companies means she can bring that expertise to smaller companies who do not employ their own accountant. With over 20 years experience in preparing Financial Statements and Corporation Tax returns Simply Additions have the expertise to offer a wider range of accountancy services including historical accounts, up-to-date management accounts and future projections for profit and cashflow.
Lorraine's current challenge is learning to play golf which forces her to do a bit of exercise and get some fresh air.
