Founder, North Star Accounting
North Star Accounting was founded by Tania Bennett (FCCA) in 2015 and was previously known as T Bennett Accountants. Tania is a certified chartered accountant who had a 15-year career in the City Of London with Arthur Andersen, Morgan Stanley, UBS and Barclays Investment Bank. She worked in Finance, Project management and Technology learning her leadership skills, finance skills and strategic outlook.
Fiona is a chartered accountant (ICAS) who started her career at PwC. Later she moved to work in finance and internal audit at the BBC. She joined the practice in 2017. Fiona’s favourite part of her job is training and problem solving for clients.
“Building trust and delivering what is promised is key to strong client relationships. North Star provides the services we would want to receive, knowing what we know if we were in the client’s position – not more or less.
We are plain-speaking and work hard to make sure you are comfortable with what is required when and what is required of you. We make sure that you understand your figures so you know how your business is tracking against plan. Clients often come to us not really understanding their accounts or why they’ve paid so much tax, and with cumbersome processes than can be easily automated. We get a lot of satisfaction helping our clients transform their business, helping them grow and improve their work-life-balance”

I’ve had so many friends and colleagues who have been totally in the dark about so many arrangements during the Covid situation with regards to their business finances, and it’s really highlighted what an amazing service you provide and just how outstanding North Star Accounting is at what you do and offer, so a huge thank you. I’m so glad that I found you to work with, it’s definitely made a significant positive difference to my business, not just in the last few months but overall.

I can’t remember who recommended Tania, but I’m so happy they did. When we set up shop in 2017 we had to learn on our feet. As a small business expert Tania was a critical part of getting us moving forward. She set up all of the required documents with HMRC, posted our minutes, set up payroll for our staff and allowed us to concentrate on running the business. She’s always across all of the current legislation and keeps us up to date on any changes that are relevant to us. This has never been more evident since the Covid-19 lockdown. As we’ve grown she’s helped us streamline our systems, which have in turn saved us time and money. She always takes the time with any explanations and in a way even I can understand. Oh and did I mention that she’s a really nice person? Well she is!
