Bloodwood Accounting is an unusual accounting service.

I offer most of the standard accounting services – tax returns, corporation tax, VAT, bookkeeping and so on. I have 25 years experience accounting in SMEs, including some of my own businesses, as well as in co-operatives, voluntary community organisations and government funded community services.

And I offer all this with an attitude of empowerment – empowering my clients around money, and empowering community around finance and the local economy.  My empowerment attitude means that if I work myself out of a job because my clients have become adept in their own money management then that’s a job well done. I’m very happy to simply do the accounting work. I’m equally happy to train people in doing it themselves. Mixing these two together is delightful.

I also get juice from empowering us all to live the life paths that nourish our souls, spark our creativity, and deeply connect us with The World.  I myself live an alternative lifestyle,  having lived for many years in the forest, and identifying mostly clearly as queer pagan.  This is an identity not usually associated with the ‘hard-headed’ or ‘rational’ world of finance and money.  For me, though, there are many spiritual aspects to money and our relationship with it – you can read more in my blog posts.

I originally got into accounting back in the 1980s through co-operatives and programs to empower communities around money and finance. I’ve stayed because I love the power of accounting systems, I love the routine of bookkeeping, and I especially love working with business owners to draw out the story of their business revealed in their financial reports.
