T: +44 1452 228607

E: rjw@kingscott-dix.co.uk

Expertise – Audit – Charities – Company Law

Bob qualified with a Top 20 firm in 1978 and, such was the professional environment in those days, he was able to cut his audit teeth on some substantial, quoted companies.

Since that time, he has played a central role in keeping the firm up to date with current auditing and accounting standards. His encyclopaedic knowledge of all things technical also extends to company secretarial matters.

Bob has managed to provide a comfortable lifestyle for his Osteopath thanks to the toil taken by his past sporting activities – mainly hockey. Most of his physical activities these days, however, are confined to the garden (although he does swing the occasional golf club). In addition, music takes up much of his leisure time, mainly in the form of playing the saxophone and singing in a couple of choirs.
