Published Content

Given Jimmy’s broad experience of supporting clients through their accounting needs, Jimmy’s contributions to content for the firm have been equally wide reaching. Most recently, he updated his pre-year-end considerations for businesses with a 31 March year end and preparing for the end of the tax year. Utilising his knowledge of the Charities and NFP sector, he has also produced an overview of Community Interest Companies (CICs), as a seemingly overlooked business structure. In addition, he has written pieces looking at the interplay between Directors’ loans, salary, rent and dividends in owner managers’ tax calculations.

Publications, press and speaker events

In 2020, Jimmy was selected as one of the panel members responsible for selecting the winners of awards at Broadland District Council’s Community at Heart Awards in Norwich, an event that Price Bailey supported for several years between 2017-2021. In addition, Jimmy was also a regular speaker at Broadland Online Directory breakfast events across Norfolk prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Jimmy is qualified as a Certified Accountant (FCCA) and AAT qualified.
