At Strickland Accountancy we like to keep things simple but there is, of course, some technical jargon that we ought to tell you about. We are members of AAT, ATT and FSB and we work with both Sage and QuickBooks. This enables us to advise on accounting packages and set up online packages for clients so that we input data online and the client can access them themselves and pull off reports as and when required. The work we do in acting for clients is either done from our office or on-sight.

We work closely with the local banks and have good relationships with all the local business bank managers.

If we can't assist our clients in any aspect of their business needs then we will assist in making the applicable introductions to people who can. For example, we work closely with Caunce O’Hara Independent Insurance Services (, who is a local firm of reliable insurance brokers. They deal with all types of insurance and have looked after a number of our clients.


Joanna Strickland
MAAT Director and Accountant
Hi I'm Joanna, I am a mum of two beautiful daughters and one wonderful son. I'm married and occasionally am the domestic goddess.

When I'm not at work or being mum I love to spend time working with charitable causes, as well as training for the next London marathon. Last year my friend and I raised £3,200 for children with cancer.

I'm also a sucker for anything or one that needs rescuing so I have far too many pets and a lovely extended family.

I have worked in accountancy for 25 years and absolutely love, love, love my job and the ladies that work with me.

My role involves looking after our new clients who wish to incorporate Limited Companies, CIS clients and Credit Control. I generally do a wide range of duties to help run our busy office. I absolutely love my job and the team I work with. One of my happy places is at work!
