Joanne – Managing Director
I take ultimate responsibility for everything that happens at Omer & Company, from business development to client care. I go out to meet new and existing clients, organise seminars and education sessions, and run networking and mastermind events.
I left school at 18 and went straight into an accountancy practice as an office junior. I moved up the ranks, moved to a different firm five years later and then eventually went out on my own. I am now a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians. The best thing about being in this industry is meeting other business owners, learning about their journey, and becoming a part of their business’s success. As a result, I’ve taken the responsibility involved in acquiring a retiring practitioner’s practice extremely seriously, especially since Omer & Company has been a fixture in the local community since 1985.
My accountancy practice takes up the majority of my time, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There are so many crossovers between business and personal life and many of the people I know through networking and various industry events have become firm friends as well. I’m very staff focused so I am always available for my team, whether they want to talk about business or chat over a cup of tea.
Jenny – Practice Manager
My role is very broad, covering a number of key responsibilities – managing the team, supporting and training staff, meeting new clients, and overseeing a wide client portfolio. This involves a lot of interaction with clients and staff which I love, particularly when I have the opportunity to learn how clients operate and can assist them by adding value to their business.
I have worked in accountancy since 2008, having qualified with the Association of Accounting Technicians in 2013. I joined Omer & Company in 2017 when I qualified with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and every day since has varied according to client expectations, deadlines and staff requirements.
I live locally to our office and love to spend time with my family and friends outside of work. I also enjoy travelling whenever I possibly can.
Spencer – Senior Client Manager
My main duties focus on preparing limited company accounts, corporation tax returns, and personal tax returns. A typical day in my role involves analysing paperwork and records from our clients and piecing things together so they make sense. I am an analytical person who likes solving problems and I find that my background in computing has been hugely beneficial. Technology is such a key part of the industry nowadays.
I have a Computer Science degree and used to work as an IT developer, making the move into accountancy in 2009 when I first joined Omer & Company. I worked part time whilst I was studying for my qualification and I am a now a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). The best thing about the job is the people. My colleagues are a lovely bunch who make going to work enjoyable. Plus, because our clients are so friendly and have varied businesses, every day is interesting.
I live in Orpington with my wife and two children. My kids take up most of my time, but I practice tai chi and qi gong which help keep me grounded.
Nicola – Client Manager
I take care of clients’ end of year accounts, VAT returns and self-assessments. It’s my job to deal with all my clients’ accounting needs so they don’t have to worry. I am AAT qualified, and am looking to pursue additional Association of Taxation Technicians and Chartered Tax Advisor qualifications.
I entered the accountancy industry by chance, but I’ve found my organisation skills and approachability have perfectly suited my role. I have been working for Omer & Company since 2017 and particularly enjoy working closely with clients – receiving positive feedback makes everything worthwhile!
I live in Dartford, and when I am not working you will find me shopping, travelling, or socialising with friends and family.
Sian – Client Manager
As a client manager for the larger, VAT registered clients within Omer & Company my role varies from account preparation for limited companies, partnerships, and sole traders, through to bookkeeping, and VAT returns.
Having started my career in accountancy whilst working as a bookkeeper for a car dealership, I qualified with the International Association of Bookkeepers before completing an additional qualification for the Association of Accounting Technicians. I’ve worked at Omer & Company since 2005 and am fortunate to have built long-standing relationships with my clients and to have watched them grow alongside the company.
Outside of work, you can normally find me and my children at a theme park. As a self-confessed adrenaline junkie, I used to rock climb for a living before settling into accountancy!
Melisa – Client Manager
As a client manager, my responsibilities include preparing statutory accounts, managing and submitting VAT returns, and dealing with tax returns. I will also deal with any queries raised by our clients and speak to any new clients we may be taking on. I am here to make sure everyone’s accounting needs are met by offering advice on a wide range of topics.
I have always wanted to be an accountant, as I feel I possess the skills and methodical approach that are necessary to succeed. I am qualified with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and have been working for Omer & Company since 2020. I find my role to be extremely rewarding – helping clients and meeting new people are my favourite parts of the job.
I live in Welling, and outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, going for walks, and reading.
Barbara – Bookkeeper & Admin Assistant
I mainly carry out self-assessment tax returns, as well as taking responsibility for one of our client’s bookkeeping. Where required, I also help out with a range of administrative tasks, including tidying up paperwork and documentation. I’m an organised and methodical person – I like detail and structure, and these are aspects which are crucial to my role.
I previously worked in IT and then in general admin. When one of my colleagues was planning to leave the company where we worked, she recommended that I enrol on a bookkeeping course and take over her role. Once I got started, I became hooked! I joined Omer & Company in 2019 and have since obtained my AAT Level 3 qualification. I am now working towards my Level 4 qualification.
I live in Dagenham, and in my spare time I listen to lots of audiobooks and podcasts – these are particularly good during the commute into the office. I love to watch drama series, write, travel, and spend time with friends.
Lindsey – Office Manager & Administrator
I deal with administrative tasks within the Omer & Company office and am always focused on helping clients with any questions or requests. I mainly work with clients during their onboarding with the company, handling any and all queries as soon as we receive them. My organisational skills are definitely key in my position.
I began working in the industry due to a recommendation from a friend and have been part of the Omer & Company team since 2021. I particularly enjoy the working environment here and the lovely people that I get to work with.
I live in Beckenham, and in my spare time I enjoy football and Netflix.
Yvonne – Payroll Manager
I manage our clients’ payroll and CIS schemes, speaking with them on a regular basis over the phone and via email. Typical tasks I’m responsible for include processing payrolls, calculating CIS tax deductions, processing subcontractor payments, and making online submissions to HMRC.
I previously worked part-time for a small housing association where I began processing tenants’ rent and benefit payments, accounts payable, and took over payroll duties too. I then attended a payroll course at college and decided to move fully into this industry. I joined Omer & Company in 2014 and have never looked back!
I live locally, and outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
