Our Team


Colin Wash  colinwash@linkedin

With twenty five years experience as a partner in top ten national accountancy practices, Colin has a wealth of experience in dealing with owner managed businesses and not
for profit organisations.

Colin is an enthusiastic and hands on adviser who loves to immerse himself in assisting his clients with all aspects of business advice.

Over the last ten years Colin has specialised in the charities and education sector. During this time he has acted for a variety of charities from Top 100 organisations to small local based entities. Whilst providing audit services, governance reviews, trustee training etc, the experience which Colin has gained through working closely with his charity clients, also means that he can advise more operationally on fundraising and service provision. Recently Colin has assisted several clients to set up trading subsidiary companies and with the outlook for the sector continuing to be difficult, he anticipates this will have an important role to play within the industry moving forward.

Colin’s unfailing enthusiasm towards his clients often leads them to describe him as ’not like an accountant’. He takes this as a compliment!
