Lisa adds the human touch to us as accountants. Not being an accountant means she is able to look at things from a non-accountants view point and intervene when things get too technical. Lisa deals with all the clients’ books and records that enter our building making sure the accounts process is as efficient as possible and that nothing gets lost.


Steven Pincott

Position: Director

Telephone: 01623 657111

Email: spincott@apc-accountants.co.uk

Steven has been with the firm since 1999 and is fully qualified in accounts and tax. He joined the management team in 2009 and was promoted to Director in July 2018 due to his success in the firm and he is keen to continue to help new and existing clients with their business needs. Steven is looking to grow the firm so he can help more people prosper in their business environment and pay less tax. Steven says "Many businesses pay too much tax simply because they do not know, or have not been advised on what they can claim for. I make sure all my clients claim the full amount they can."

Steven specialises in the accounts and taxation of limited companies and their directors. Each company and their owners have unique circumstances, and understanding them is key to identifying the best possible structure for the business.

Steven also has a large amount of experience of electronic accounts packages including Microsoft Excel and Sage. He is happy to answer any queries you may have on these.
