Claire Hughes FMAAT

After over a decade of working in two, very different, accounting practices gaining valuable experience I decided it was time to set up on my own and in April 2016 CH Accountancy Ltd was born.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, holidays, travelling and visiting different places and I am a passionate Liverpool FC supporter.

Sarim Khan, SharpCloud Software Director and Co-founder

Claire has managed our business accounting for over 4 years and she’s worked brilliantly alongside our management team on the day-to-day accounting as well as the monthly and annual reporting.

We consider Claire an integral part of our team, she understands our business and she’s always available to go the extra mile to help support our accounting-led discussions. I highly recommend her!

Chris Cowan, Project Manager

I have been using the accountancy experience of Claire Hughes for nearly 10 years and have found that the advice she has given has been invaluable.

I have found it extremely easy to deal with Claire amid the complex rules and regulations related to the preparation and submission of business and personal accounts as well as tax returns.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire’s accountancy skills to anyone.

Mary Calver, Early Years Owner - Manager of Rising Fives Play Nursery

Claire was a pupil in my nursery school when I first started my childcare business 27 years ago. I was not surprised to discover that she had gone on to do well in her education and was studying for her accountants exams, whilst working for the accountancy firm that I was using. She has looked after my financial affairs for many years now, from bookkeeping and payroll, to tax advice and preparation of accounts and tax returns. I am delighted that Claire is now in business independently and will continue to provide my nursery school with her excellent, professional service with friendly and sound advice, allowing me to spend more time with the children and less time in the office.
