Two members of a Barnsley accountancy firm have qualified as chartered accountants after passing their exams.
Robert Howarth and Claire Dickinson of Gibson Booth both passed exams meaning they can take on more responsibility within the company and handle more clients.
Robert, 26 from Halifax, joined Gibson Booth four years ago, and Claire, 24 from Doncaster, joined three years ago; both as trainee accountants.
Gibson Booth, which has its offices on Victoria Road in the town centre, has 30 staff, in the region of 1,000 clients and a turnover which has been growing year on year.
It offers corporate tax planning, accounts, audit, personal tax planning; together with specialisms including VAT, payroll, capital taxes, research and development tax planning, employee incentivisation, corporate finance and wealth management.
Managing director Robert Watson said: “It’s great that both Robert and Claire were successful. This means we now have more qualified staff members on our books and gives us the opportunity to expand and take on more clients.
“Both Robert and Claire are excellent workers and studied hard for their exam, so it came as no surprise to me when they both passed.”
