Cowgill Holloway trio celebrate qualification success
Leading North West chartered accountants and business advisors, Cowgill Holloway, is celebrating a trio of qualifications across the firm.
Josh McCarthy, a member of the audit and advisory team, who joined the firm in January 2016 celebrates completing his professional exams and becoming a Chartered Accountant (ACA). Speaking about his exam passes, Josh said: “I’m glad the revising and studying for the exams is over, and proud to be able to officially say that I’m a chartered accountant.”
Jessica Lydon, Audit Client Manager – also in the audit and advisory team – completed her exams and training to become a Chartered Accountant in 2014, and has now passed her exams to become a Chartered Tax Adviser.
The CTA (Chartered Tax Adviser) exams are the premier UK qualification for those involved in giving advice on tax, and is granted once individuals have both passed exams and demonstrated sufficient relevant professional experience. Jessica completed all examinations in 2016 and received her final results in 2017; having already completed enough practical experience she is just awaiting for membership to be granted.
Speaking about her qualifications, Jessica Lydon said: “After becoming a Chartered Accountant, I immediately set my eyes on becoming a Chartered Tax Adviser, the two link very intrinsically so it was a natural move for me to ensure I was proficient in both elements that impact businesses so much.”
Sean Neary, another member of the firm’s audit and advisory department also celebrates completing all his professional exams to become a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
Managing Partner, Paul Stansfield said: “We’re delighted to continue to see the team progressing through their exams and qualifications – we’re very proud of all of them.
“We’ve got a good group of young professionals coming through the ranks, and it’s impressive to see their determination and commitment in their specialist fields. We ensure we invest in our team, to make sure they have all the skills and knowledge they require for a career in accountancy.”
