Describe what you do at Seymour Taylor

As Joint Managing Director, I am responsible for our fantastic team, training and ensuring that the systems and processes that we use for the delivery of our client services remain seamless and smooth. As technical lead I have an active interest in our ever changing industry and enjoyadvising on strategy, the implementation and effectiveness of systems and processes and the impact on financial reporting of business decisions or changes in reporting frameworks.

My Experience

I have a wealth of experience with owner managed businesses and groups and my passion is to provide innovative, proactive advice to clients and streamline the compliance work to assist businesses with their accounts, audit and assurance requirements. I take great pride in establishing long lasting relationships, to understand my clients which allow me to tailor proactive support to the specific requirements of each client.

I have supported several clients through the process of selling their businesses over recent years, from assisting in preparing a company for sale, through the due diligence process, ensuring the understanding of the financial offer and tax efficiencies of the deal.

I am a Charity and Education sector specialist, which means I work with a number of local charities and not for profit organisations from educational establishments to charities supporting sufferers of specific medical conditions, supporting them with decision making as well as having the technical knowledge to advise on their tax and statutory requirements.

My passions in life are

Sunshine holidays with my family. I also enjoy dining out with friends, cooking and entertaining.


We have been working with Seymour Taylor for 6 years and they do the Audits, Corporation tax, and consolidation for our business.

What I like about Liz and her team is that they co-ordinate multi-international audits with our subsidiaries with ease and efficiency. Liz and her team have a flexible and adaptive approach, which has been extremely helpful especially during the COVID 19 pandemic.

The team is excellent at adapting to new technologies and innovative processes, always tailoring their response to provide advice that maximizes tax efficiencies for our business.

They can translate the technical nuances into real-life practicality, which makes it much easier doing business together.

Seymour Taylor has great retention within their team, which makes a huge difference to the client service we receive. Their knowledge and background of our business is a key differentiator for them vs competitors. Overall, they provide an excellent client experience, which is both responsive and flexible and I would happily recommend them.

“Liz Horton has been excellent and we have worked with her and the team at Seymour Taylor for the past 5 years.

She has always kept us up to date with developments as our accounts have been drawn up and her team ensures we do the right things at the right times. She has explained how the process works giving timely advice and the implications for the business, which has been invaluable in the decision making process.
As a social enterprise this means we can maximise the social and environmental impact we make from a financially sound platform”.
