Director | Chelmsford
Caroline Peters is a Director in our Audit and Accounts Team, and joined us in 1998. She has a strong and diverse portfolio of clients, many of which are family-owned entities, and includes individuals through to international groups.
Caroline works with a large number of farming businesses, which have very specific accounting and tax issues. She enjoys meeting with the families to discuss not just the accounts, but also other issues, many of which are unique to the farming world. Caroline has been a regular presenter at our annual Farming Families update.
In addition to farming and other commercial enterprises, Caroline has developed a specialism in the not-for-profit sector, having gained extensive experience working with charities and other not-for-profit organisations. These have been across a variety of charitable aims and different structures.
Caroline understands the complexities of charities and trustee responsibilities, and is able to provide advice relating to the many issues that affect these organisations. She appreciates the need to demonstrate a businesslike approach whilst delivering the charitable aims, and has been involved in several exercises advising on internal controls. She has also assisted our Tax Team in providing advice on trading issues including VATable supplies for charities.
Caroline enjoys meeting with clients to discuss their aspirations and accounting needs, and identifying solutions to help achieve these. She works closely with our Tax Team to ensure that an all-round, consistent service is provides to all of our clients.
Outside of work and her family, Caroline’s main interest is Girlguiding and she has been a warranted leader since 1988. She holds a camp and holiday licence, which means the Guides are able to share her enjoyment of a wide range of outdoor activities.
Caroline acts as a mentor for other Guiders, passing on team and leadership skills while having a lot of fun. She is also a member of the Brentwood Activities Team, which provides more adventurous activities at fun days and camps.
Her interests include gardening, watching sport – especially football and rugby union, particularly the internationals and London Irish.
