Susie is a fantastic advocate for freelance artists and practitioners. Her approach to self-assessment and corporation tax is one of patience and compassion that holds space for different individuals to access this process and work at their pace. Susie is personable and through working with her I felt any anxiety around self-assessment and corporation tax dissolve.

Incredibly helpful, patient and kind with a wonderful warm energy – I would recommend you to anyone, and left the session feeling so much clearer about all things tax and business. Never once felt overwhelmed and everything was explained so clearly – a real personal touch that made the whole session enjoyable as well as informative.

Susie is wonderful, kind, patient and an absolute genius! It is a joy to work with her and she brings so much clarity to all the financial work I would naturally find quite anxiety inducing! A total pleasure working with her.

Honestly, I could not recommend Susie enough. Knowing that we work together, has put my mind at ease every tax season. She has made the process easy and understood since our first session, five years ago. Since then, she has not only helped me with my Self Assessment but also with setting up my second business. On top of all that, she is the loveliest, wittiest person!

Ada Alti, Freelance Strategist

I loved Susie’s approach and conversation. Self assessment always feels like a stressful experiences, but after an hour of consultancy I was reassured and even inspired. From overall advices and ways to approach doing my taxes, Susie also offered practical tools like spreadsheets and frameworks like ‘tax parties’ that I could put in place immediately. I felt supported and informed, and left feeling equipped to improve the way I approach admin around taxes. Thank you Susie!

Booked a 1:1 session with Susie after attending one of her online workshops several years ago. She was extremely informative, helpful and supportive, giving me practical ideas and tips to feel a little more in control of my finances as a freelancer working in the arts. Could not recommend highly enough – I wish we received some of the support/training I had with Susie at school!

Ella McCarthy, Theatre facilitator & writer (freelance)

Susie has been nothing short of wonderful. Her generosity is matched by her knowledge and she has been a huge help to both myself and the freelance community at large, both professionally in her capacity as a financial advisor and personally in her professionalism and kindness.

Susie is a joy to work with. She makes the chore of filing your tax return feel like a breeze, and she’s very knowledgeable. Her service is personalised and friendly, and I am so glad to be working with her. I heartily recommend her to all my friends.
