Emma Shines In VAT Exams

Dodd & Co are delighted to announce that Emma Forrester has passed her VAT (Chartered Tax Advisor in Indirect Taxes) exams, sitting them at Newcastle in November last year.

These prestigious exams are notoriously difficult with only 40-50 people sitting them in the UK each year with around only half of those people going on to pass.

Emma first joined Dodds back in 2011 after completing an accounting and finance degree at The University Of Leeds, gaining a first class honours degree. She passed her ACA (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales) exams in December 2013.

Whilst studying for her ACA exams Emma gained experience in all aspects of Dodd & Co’s practice, including preparing accounts for businesses of a wide range of shapes and sizes.

“Before starting the VAT training I discussed with Faye, our current VAT partner, about how difficult the exams were but they would be a means to an end – and about what the end job would entail. My family have a building business so the idea of helping clients with VAT planning when building properties and advising on property transactions really appealed to me. The qualification is rare in Cumbria and VAT is such a grey area for many people that it seemed like a great idea to learn how to pass helpful and proactive VAT advice on to our clients”.

Faye Armstrong, one of Dodd & Co’s ten partners, said “We are very proud of Emma’s success, and all of the hard work she has put in. It proves once again that there are great opportunities for ambitious people right here in Penrith.”

Emma grew up near Calthwaite and attended Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Penrith. She has recently bought her own home at Low Plains. As Emma has spent the last year studying she is looking forward to a well deserved holiday and spending time enjoying her favourite hobby, horseriding, within which she is starting to learn the techniques of natural horsemanship.
