Raymond Hutt MAAT FCCA, Director of Accounting and IT Services


What’s your role at James Hair & Co?

I look after the day-to-day processing and preparation of client accounts, as well as meeting clients and discussing their tax position and tax planning. I also look after our team of interns.


What do you like best about it?

The wide variety of work – I’ve been at James Hair & Co since 1989 – albeit with a 4-year break in between – and we’ve always evolved as a company. We have a diverse client base and that throws up completely different scenarios every day.


We’re also bringing in young enthusiastic staff – it’s great to see the same enthusiasm in them that I had, and to have the chance to support them.


What one word sums you up and why?

Adaptable. We come across so many different client scenarios and I like to think we’re all approachable and adaptable to their needs.


What was the last thing you Googled?

Companies House! Usually have the link on my desktop but it’s disappeared – that’s tech for you!


What’s No.1 on your bucket list?

I’d like to go to America. I’ve got two young kids, and they’d love to visit Walt Disney World Florida.
