Who We Are
Tom Trainer BSc FCA
I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1992 with BDO Stoy Hayward, one of the largest firms of Chartered Accountants in the UK. After qualifying, I moved into the world of commerce, becoming UK Financial Controller of AIG, the world's biggest international insurance company at the time, and In 2004 I set up Chartered Online Accountant, to meet the accounting needs of small businesses and individuals.
I rarely wear a tie, and I won't talk to you in accounting jargon (unless you want me to). Unusually for a Chartered Accountant, I don't have a posh accent. On the other hand, I will take the time to find out what accounting software and business processes are right for you and/or your business to ensure your accounting and tax needs are met in the simplest, most efficient and cost-effective manner. My aim is to make your life easier by streamlining your business and taking away the burden of your accounting.
Joanne Clinton BSc PhD
I joined Chartered Online Accountant full-time in 2014 as a Director looking after business development and practice management, having previously worked for the company on a part–time basis since late 2008. I have over 20 years experience working in project management and business development across several sectors including pharmaceuticals, property development, medical education and accountancy. I started my career in academic research gaining my PhD in neuroscience from St Mary's Hospital Medical School, London. Like Tom, I don't have a posh accent either; I'm a Geordie, who has loved living and working in London for 25 years.
