James Twigger

Founding Director

“Helping you to succeed in your business aspirations”

Being born and bred in Torbay, I’ve been fortunate to spend my career to date at some of the Westcountry’s finest accountancy firms, now taking that experience to launch Accounting4Everything, at our new offices located in Paignton.

My passion is working closely with local business owners to grow and achieve their objectives. Having been brought up in one of Paignton’s largest hotels, I have been involved in business from a very young age which has given me a unique perspective of the leisure and Tourism sector, the largest industry in the English Riviera.

In 2015 I won the British Accountancy Awards ‘Practitioner of the Year’ Award, which was a huge honour, especially as it was my clients that put me forward for it in the first place.

Nick Millard

Director of Operations

“Efficiencies are the key to long term success, always looking to help staff and clients improve”

Born in Plymouth, I spent 14 years living near Newcastle before moving back to the Bay, which is my “home”. Having been in practice for 22 years (in both small and mid size firms), I have seen massive changes in both our industry and the business community as a whole. I have spent many years specialising in the cloud solutions and management accounting, assisting clients to have the most efficient accounting system and up to date timely information to enable rapid decision making and planning for the future.

If I have one aim working here, is to ensure that you are always treated as important, and that I can help alleviate any worries that you have. I want you to be able to concentrate on the important things, and the things you are good at, which is running your business, not worrying about the compliance side.

I am Xero certified (amongst others), ensuring that I am always up to date with the changes in the software solutions.

Clare Twigger

Operations Senior Manager

“Supporting the team, which includes you”

Born in Torbay, with links to the Midlands, I have been James’ “better” half for 15 years! I spent 5 years working for the TDA before joining James at Accounting4Everything as Office Manager.

I have now taken on a role of supporting James with running the business, I deal with the day to day running of the office and supporting all of the staff to ensure a smooth running of the business.

I want your experience with us to be great from moment you get in touch with us.

Amy Summers

Client Services Manager

“Started from the bottom now we’re here”

Born in the Midlands, I first moved to Cornwall, and then to Torbay, all at a young age. Starting in practice 8 years ago, I worked for a small practice, which has now been incorporated within the firm you see today, Accounting4Everything! As the practice was small, I have had the opportunity to work on all aspects of the accounting role, from bookkeeping and Xero (I am Xero certified), through the VAT and accounts process, and completing the payroll and pensions.

I am now the Payroll and Accounts Manager for the firm, overseeing the Payroll, Pension and CIS process, supporting the payroll team as well as your end of year Tax and Accounts process.

Ben Gruber

Client Services Director

“Supporting you in the compliance process of your business”

I grew up in Torbay, and have had the opportunities to see just what the Bay has to offer. I have worked in accountancy since 2013 and joined Accounting4Everything in November 2016. With this experience, I have learnt how to assist clients with their business and tax issues.

I am now the Senior Manager of the Company, in this role I oversee the VAT and Accounts as well as ensuring that the onboarding process of new clients runs efficiently. In this new role I have been given the opportunity to meet with new clients and I will likely be the first port of call.

My goal whilst working with you, is to ensure that you are provided with the relevant information in a timely manner to help you manage your business and provide the best opportunity for your business to grow.

Amanda Thorne

Junior Manager

“I put the AT in VAT by ensuring your business is VAT compliant”

Born and raised in the seaside town of Torbay. I started my accountancy career at 19 years old by studying Level 2 AAT at South Devon College and then onto a Level 3 AAT apprenticeship with Exeter College in the accountancy industry.

After gaining 3 and half years of industry experience, I decided I would like to work in practice, so I started working at Accounting4Everything as an accountant’s assistant in 2021 and I have enjoyed helping clients with their businesses ever since. My role is to ensure that all VAT returns and other compliance is in accordance with the HMRC requirements, and that all submissions are done in a timely manner.

I am now training alongside Ben to take on the role as VAT manager.


Megan Howard

Operations Manager

“Ensuring new and existing clients feel supported and providing a first port of call for your Accounting needs”

Born in Oxford, but growing up in Torbay I have plenty of experience in customer service roles and love meeting new people. My role has developed to Admin Manager over the last few years with Accounting 4 Everything, meaning I support our team as well as being the first contact for any new clients, and keeping in touch with existing clients.

I enjoy supporting clients as best as I can and ensuring that clients feel welcome and feel able to ask for support when needed.

If there is ever anything you need to get in touch about, please do feel free to contact me.

Leah Tucker

Semi Senior

“You’ll find me at the front desk, cup of tea in hand, ready to support you with your queries”

Born and bred in Torbay, I also have links to the West Midlands. After finishing a degree in Early years and Special and Inclusive Education at Nottingham Trent University, I returned home to join the Accounting4Everything team to take a break from the early years sector and re-train.

I started within the company working in general administration and have since progressed within my job role by supporting the payroll team with admin tasks and client queries.

I believe the skills I have developed working within educational and inclusive settings, can be transferrable to my role as I am able to help accommodate client needs and make everyone feel welcome within our office.

Ensuring that you are payroll compliant and that you and your employees are provided with the best possible service”

Although originally from Hertfordshire, and spending time in London, I moved to Torbay about 11 years ago.

I have been with Accounting 4 Everything since 2018 and have progressed my role to Payroll Assistant, ensuring that all the payrolls are completed on time, that employers are aware of their responsibilities and are pension compliant.

Whilst the payroll compliance might not always be at the forefront of you mind, my aim is to ensure that you and your employees are my first priority, and that you know that if there is ever an issue, big or small, I am just on the other end of the phone.

Semi Senior

“Here to help with keeping on top of organising your books and assisiting with your queries”

I was born in Cambridge, however moved to Devon when I was young. I went on to study maths at Sussex University in Brighton for 3 years before I started as a trainee at Accounting 4 Everything in November 2021, I have since completed my level 2 AAT and am due to complete my level 3 AAT finishing my training in June 2023.

My role here at A4E is to assist the VAT team in processing the returns and completing bookkeeping for our clients, and helping with client VAT queries where I can.
