Kevin is an accountant with years of experience working with businesses from a variety of sectors. Having initially trained with a major accounting and consulting firm, Baker Tilly, Kevin spent 5 years in accountancy practice before working for another 5 years as an IT consultant and system manager for an insolvency practice.
Kevin Bennett has held in-house and consultancy positions in a wide range of industries, including being Interim Finance Director for Swindon Town Football Club and the Lead Accountant for an oil company that operated around the coast of West Africa.
Kevin currently runs his own accountancy practice which he started in 2013, working with corporate clients such as high-end security specialists, car dealerships, training providers, building developers and many more. He has also worked closely with insolvency practitioners for many years, including Macintyre Hudson and Quantuma.
He specialises in all matters of accounting, including book-keeping and corporation and personal tax returns. Kevin has also honed his skills in troubleshooting systems for clients and can provide his expert advice by training teams and putting new systems in place.
His accounting skillset includes:
Kevin has worked with insolvency practitioners in the investigative process, aiding with noting transactions and trails in financial accounts and collating all possibilities into a nominal code on the account system. In this way, he can do both internal and external account management; interrogating accounting records or converting data from accounting software.
Kevin has also issued work on bank statement conversions imported into Xero, an online accounting package. Through this, he can sift through specific transactions in a company’s accounts and put them into a user-friendly report.
Alongside this, Kevin looks after the full accounting requirements, year-end accounts, corporation and personal tax, VAT, payroll, cashflows and forecasting for his clients.
Kevin can assist on any job where accounting data needs to be interrogated. For instance, working with investors in private equity that may need further financial management, or on divorce cases where one party intends to recover money from their spouse’s side.
