Paul Moston | Chartered Accountant
mugshot2During my career I have had wide experience working in market research, construction, electrical contractors, plumbers, dentistry, property rental, recruitment and on-line businesses.
Whilst Accounts preparation and Tax Computations are a vital part of what an Accountant does, my philosophy has always been to be a hands-on Accountant. More of a support role to each and every client. I am often away from my desk, working with my clients to assist in the development of their businesses.
My goal is to maintain Mostons as an accountancy practice that offers a wide range of business support services that will include everything from the compliance (or form filling) requirements through to external consultancy.
I take great pride in being a Chartered Accountant and the experience this career choice has given me. Having established my own business, Mostons, in 2009, I now live and work in Winchmore Hill.
I am a dedicated family man with three wonderful children, Hannah, Isabelle and Alex.
