Our People

Stuart Atkinson is probably the most experienced accountant in town. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1965. He has been in practice ever since. He began his career with Buckley Hall Devin. He worked for and was trained by legendary Chartered Accountants namely Brian Hall, Barry Gaskill, Bruce Fletcher, Eric Grocock. He picked their brains mercilessly. He later built up a practice with offices in Hull, Bridlington, Doncaster, Gainsborough and Louth, incorporating two firms in Bridlington and Gainsborough. He sold those practices and offices between 2008 and 2012 and opened a specialist boutique accountancy office which we call The Accountancy Shop. He was the youngest practising accountant in 1965; he is now certainly, if not the oldest, one of the oldest. There is little he does not know. There is even less that he has not experienced. He may not be able to run the 100 yards in 10.6 seconds any more but his brain is as sharp as ever and has `the added benefit of 50 years experience at the coal face. As it says on the tin he is open 24/7 (07802 901 010). Feel free to contact. He is always available.

His partner Sallie Nielsen joined Stuart in 1980. They set up The Accountancy Shop together. Sallie is, according to many, the best organiser, the best demonstrator. She has the biggest/longest/most accurate memory. Anything she does not know she will find out. Quickly.

Mark Frankish is an important member of the team who trained in Stuart’s office in the late ‘80s. He is very successful. He left to go into commerce. He tired of the commercial existence and turned to Stuart when he found out about Stuart’s “accountancy boutique”. He is as good an accountant as Stuart has experienced. His numbers are always correct. His presentation is always first class.

The fourth member of our team is Su Shipley. Su takes the calls. Su opens the door. Nothing is ever too much trouble. She is always willing. Always has a smile. Su is the perfect final piece of the jigsaw.

We also have as an associate Stephen Blake who is a computer systems “buff”. He is not a “geek”! He is an ordinary guy with an extraordinary knowledge of computers and software. He would be available for any such necessary advice from time to time.

In addition, we offer web and app development though Will Atkinson and his associates. Will has years of web development and design experience and has built up a number of expert contacts (national and international) who we are able to use for contract work on your projects.
