Josie Adams Director, chartered accountant, chartered tax advisor

One of the founding members of Adams Tax and Accountancy Services Limited, Josie decided to launch the company after working with a wide range of personal and entrepreneurial business clients for more than 20 years, both in "big 4" and mid-tier firms as well as a sole practitioner. Over that period she has helped her clients not only get to grips with their tax obligations but also take advantage of the claims and reliefs available to them.

Over this time she has also lectured on a part-time basis training others in both accountancy and tax, preparing then for professional examinations.

Outside work Josie likes to get out and about and enjoys dinghy sailing and walking, although the cerebral challenges of bridge appeal in the winter months.
