Sisters are doing it for themselves…with the help of female run accountancy firm Premier Tax Solutions.
The North Staffordshire firm, led by Emily Precious and Vanessa Fuller, have clinched a deal to work as the official accountant for the annual the Women of the Year Awards.
“Promoting women in business is, of course, close to our hearts at Premier Tax Solutions and we are delighted to get involved with the Women of the Year Awards,” said Vanessa.
“Just looking back at the past winners is inspiring as is the organisations Board, with names such as Baroness Helen Newlove and former TV “dragon” Jenny Campbell. The event has strong Staffordshire links thanks to Zalena Vandrewala, a Senior Associate at Freeths, in Stoke. We have a long association with Zalena as she has mentored Emily and me as we have built the Premier Tax Solutions team. Zalena is a true friend and a wise source of advice for us.
“The Women of the Year Awards are fabulous and it is a not for profit organisation with surplus funds passed to charities. The directors give their time for free and they have promoted some incredibly talented women over the years.”
Director and Chair, Zalena Vandrewala said “We welcome Premier Tax Solutions to the support team for The Women of the Year Luncheon & Awards and recognise their achievements as a growing accountancy practice, led by two strong female entrepreneurs.
“I have mentored Vanessa and Emily throughout the continued expansion of Premier Tax Solutions. They are tenacious, commercially minded business women who have driven growth and established a modern and forward thinking company. We are proud to work alongside them to deliver these national awards.
Premier Tax Solutions was founded by Emily and Vanessa six years ago when they were both just 26-years-old. The duo have grown the firm to a team of six and have offices in Cheadle, Staffordshire Moorlands, and Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent.
Vanessa added: “2019 has been incredibly busy so far. Premier Tax Solutions has gained a reputation for Cloud accountancy, we are a Gold provider with Xero and this has helped our business to grow, particularly this year with the new HMRC Making Tax Digital requirements for companies.”
Opening their headquarters at the Daisy Bank Business Centre, Cheadle, in 2018, has helped to diversify Premier Tax Solutions customer base and the business has plans to expand to a team of eight.
