Professional: Adam joined the profession on leaving secondary school in Morecambe in 1993 working from the Lancaster office. Following the retirement of two Senior Partners Adam became primary contact for many of the firm’s clients in 2003. Adam progressed through the ranks and was appointed as a Corporate Partner in the Lancaster Office in 2014.
His background and training in accounts, personal and corporate taxation has left him well placed to support owner managed businesses on many levels. Adam’s team, under his guidance, deal with many self employed, partnership and privately owned businesses around the South Cumbria and North Lancashire area with some business clients further afield.
Adam also heads up the MHA Moore and Smalley Payroll Compliance service which has more than doubled in size since 2014.
Adam’s greatest strength is his ability to communicate well with both his clients and the local business community. His ability to understand and work closely with his clients has led to a client portfolio spanning many different sectors, although in recent years he has become particularly knowledgeable in the hospitality and caravan sector counting many bars, restaurant and park sites in his client base. Adam works with clients not only in terms of accountancy and taxation advice but also in terms of their short and long term commercial strategies.
As a local person, and very active in the business community, Adam’s enthusiasm for working with businesses in the Lancaster and surrounding area is without question.
Personal: Adam spends most of his time in the local area enjoying the benefits of working and living close to the Lake District, socialising with family and friends He also enjoys travelling outside of the UK both on sunshine holidays and city breaks. Adam is committed to the local community and is keen on taking part in charity events including in recent years a skydive for the NorthWest Air Ambulance and going “behind bars” at Lancaster Castle to raise money for CancerCare.
