Sarah Taylor

Sarah is a fully qualified Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA) and member of the Institute of Certified Practising Accountants (ICPA). In 2006, Sarah decided to set up her own business, following 15 years in corporate life. This was driven by a need for a new challenge and also the want of a more flexible working life.

Having gone through the setup of her own business and the continuing challenges of managing cash flow, employees, clients’ expectations and a growing business, Sarah is on the same playing field as many of her own clients and many more small business owners. Sarah has previously featured on the Expert Panel in Baby SurreyBaby London and Baby Hampshire magazines.

In any spare time that Sarah has, she enjoys spending this with her family and taking walks with her dogs. The Taylor household is a very busy one, with a husband and three children, plus dogs, cats and gerbils!
