Informed Choice Radio - personal finance peace of mind with Martin Bamford


Jun 5, 2017

My guest on Informed Choice Radio today is Chris Rowland Thomas.

Chris has been an accountant in public practice for over thirty years. He founded his own firm the day after he qualified and is now the senior partner of Thomas Harris Chartered Accountants.

Based in South London, his firm numbers amongst its clients many celebrities, musicians and actors as well as ordinary businesses and self-employed individuals. Last year his firm was voted ‘Best Celebrity Tax Advisors’ in the AI Tax Awards.

His new book is Your Accountant: The Good, The Bad and the Greedy.

This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how to make your accountant work for his or her money

In the book, Chris shares insider knowledge about the way accountants work – and what it means for you. This book is on the one hand a guide to squeezing every last drop of wisdom and expert advice out of your accountant and on the other a daring exposé of the closed professional world which has served none better than the practitioners themselves.

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I talk to Chris about saving on fees and minimising your tax bill without paying eye-watering sums for accountancy advice. Chris shares practical tips on choosing the right accountant and also on becoming a preferred client, so you get the best possible service from your professional adviser.
