Counting on making a difference at Warrener Stewart

06 November 2019 •

It was the lure of auditing that led part qualified ACCA accountant student Thandie Sambana to join Warrener Stewart.  

Having started her accountancy training with a small two partner firm advising many self-employed clients, Thandie wanted to broaden her experience and work more closely withSME’s. When an opportunity arose to continue her training to become a Certified Accountantwith Fulham based accountants, Warrener Stewart, who specialise in advising ownermanaged companies, she leapt at the chance. 

“From my studies and work experience one of the aspects of studying to be an accountantthat I found really rewarding is auditing,” says Thandie. “Joining Warrener Stewart gives methe opportunity to be able to assist on more audits and to use my analytical skills.” 

As registered auditors Warrener Stewart regularly audit medium sized companies whose turnover exceeds the new audit thresholds. Audit and accounts assistants likeThandie willwork alongside an audit manager to help source information and prepare the accounts, before they are reviewed by one of the Principals. 

Commenting on Thandie’s appointment, Colin Edney said: “Despite the change to the auditing thresholds we still carry out many audits and we need inquisitive people like Thandie. We feel there is great value to be gained from the rigour of auditing allowing us toprovide assurance to clients about their businesses.”

Fulham based Warrener Stewart provides a range of accountancy services including financial reporting, bookkeeping, audit and payroll. To ensure they continue to provide expert advice the Accountancy team has employed Andrea. Having recently moved to London from the Wirral, where she worked for a small accountancy practice, Andrea is enjoying her new role working closely with small to medium sized businesses.

For the past four years Andrea has worked as a qualified AAT assistant accountant. She is currently part way through her ACCA studies to become a Certified Accountant.

Like Andrea, Laura is also continuing her studies having joined Warrener Stewart as a tax assistant working with their US tax team. She holds a degree in Business Administration in Accounting from Florida Atlantic University and is currently completing a Master’s degree in Investment and Risk Finance at University of Westminster.

Laura has an in-depth knowledge of the US tax system, having lived in the US where she worked as a staff accountant. Alongside her masters she is also completing her studies to become an Enrolled Agent.

“We are really pleased that both Laura and Andrea have chosen to further their careers at Warrener Stewart,” says joint managing director Colin Edney. “They both understand how small businesses operate and appreciate the level of support business owners require to help them make informed business decisions.

Our US tax team is making good use of Laura’s in depth knowledge of the US tax system to assist its clients with their US tax responsibilities.”

Warrener Stewart rounds up for a night of interdepartmental rivalry

02 July 2019 • Warrener Stewart News

Every summer the accountancy and tax staff at Warrener Stewart take advantage of the longer summer nights to hold their annual inter-department Rounders Competition.

This year’s event took place on Eel Brook Common, the park opposite their offices in Fulham. Organised by the Accounts department, this was a battle of three teams. Accounts fielded a team of seven to take on the mighty eight from the personal tax department, whilst the US tax team grafted in additional ‘legs’ to field a unified team of eight.

Once rules and boundaries had been established, including the arbitrary argument over final decisions and what constituted a no ball, the first innings were won by Accounts. But the title of overall winners went to the personal tax team, whose star player Ryan O’Connor contributed to three of ten rounders.

Despite co-opting two fellow directors into the US Tax team, the addition of Nick Morgan and Gary Chapman, sadly had little bearing on their final score of 5.5 rounders. Whilst the agile accounts team tried valiantly to match the might of the big tax hitters, scoring a total of 9 rounders.

Keeping a close eye on proceedings and taking the role of bowler for the Accounts team, Colin Edney commented; “It was a very competitive match and a great way of enjoying some inter-department rivalry accompanied by light refreshments!

The Accounts team is already strategically planning for next year’s rematch, when we hope to knock it out of the park!”

Rugby under the lights at Rosslyn Park

13 May 2019 • Warrener Stewart News

In early May Warrener Stewart hosted friends old and new to an evening of first class rugby at the Rosslyn Park London Floodlit 7’s.

With the rugby season drawing to a close the weather served a timely reminder that summer is still a little way off, but this certainly didn’t dampen the action.

Through bouts of rain and setting sunshine everyone was treated to a fantastic display of thrilling, fast paced rugby 7’s from some of the best teams in the Premiership, Championship, National and University Leagues. After an extremely hard-fought competition, Harlequins were worthy winners, beating a Rosslyn Park 7 who certainly punched above their weight all evening.

“We are long standing supporters of Rosslyn Park” said Nick Morgan, joint managing director of Warrener Stewart. “Over the years we have brought our friends here many times and it never fails to entertain. It is a fantastic event just a stone’s throw from our Fulham home patch and provides a great opportunity for us to catch up with clients and celebrate the end of a long season with the Club.  As you can see, we couldn’t have been much closer to the action.”
