New team qualification bolsters audit offering at Inspire

Poole-based business and tax advisory firm, Inspire, has bolstered its compliance services offering.

It enables him to authorise and sign-off all audit work completed by the firm, on behalf of clients.

Paul has 14 years’ experience as a chartered accountant.

Andrew Singleton, Inspire Director, said: “We’re all really proud of Paul.

“This is a huge achievement for him and is testament to his hard work and dedication to our clients.

“Many clients come to us as a well-established business and tax advisory firm, but we also have specialist experience in delivering compliance services, including regulatory audits and complex accounting requirements.

“These services are delivered in the Inspire spirit of helping our clients in the most informative and efficient way, providing a bespoke service.

“Paul leads our audit team at Inspire and his new status as RI offers even more opportunities for our clients, with myself and Paul now able to oversee and sign-off all audit work.”
