• Barry Gill FCCA

    I am the current Chair of the ACCA in the Northern Counties Region and have been in the accounting industry for 18 years. I got involved with the panel in order to use my network to provide ACCA members with relevant content at seminars.  I have a large amount of experience working with SME’s from an accounting, audit and corporate finance perspective and now specialise in the sale of businesses via my online advertising platform and advisory firm TIG Corporate Finance and hold a number of part time finance director roles within north east businesses.

    I have worked in general practice for approaching 30 years, almost 20 years of which have been as an ACCA member and I run my own practice specialising in providing audit and tax services to small accountants as well as providing general accountancy services to the SME market.  Membership of the panel allows me to promote the ACCA brand of which I am very proud and has given me a circle of peers drawn from all aspects of the accountancy profession with a diverse range of views and experiences on the issues affecting both the profession and UK business.
