Paul Spencer

I commenced work with Haworths in 1987 and qualified in 1994 having undertaken the AAT qualification before moving on to the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants professional exams. I became a partner in 2001 and a Director on the incorporation of our business in 2007.

My day to day work involves me closely with clients to assist them in achieving their goals. This includes management accounts preparation and review, fund raising, acquisition and disposals of businesses, tax planning and providing a general commercial sounding board. 

Over the years I have developed excellent relationships with the regions business angels, Venture capital organisations and local grant funding bodies; I have a thorough knowledge of their appetite for investment both from a loan and equity perspective, and as well as referring clients to these organisations I help them with business plans and developing a pitch to the investment teams. Recently I have also been involved in some of the ‘crowdfunding’ investment platforms and a number of clients have raised investment funds this way.

My hobbies include attending the local gym and watching football.
