Life at Riley’s

Date posted: November 7, 2015

Wow! What a busy year it has been at Riley & Co so far.


January is always a very busy month, but it also brought the safe arrival of a Riley baby to our Admin Assistant Kayley Moran and her partner Joe, who welcomed into the world a little boy, Ethan.

As we headed into the second quarter of the year, Riley & Co hosted a well-attended Pensions Seminar held at Southwood in Halifax.  Speakers, Ben Huston from Sage and Ben Armer from Nest, together with our director, Simon Walton delivered a detailed presentation regarding the process for companies to embrace the new government initiative for employee pensions. If you require any information regarding Pension Auto Enrolment, please contact our office on 01422 341019.

As we moved into autumn, it was with much sadness that we bid farewell to Bernie Wilson after 10 tremendous years of service. She has been headhunted to join an ex colleague who now runs his own practice in Bradford specialising in GP accounts.  We wish Bernie every success and hope that her new employers appreciate just how fortunate they are to have her on board!


sarah-crawfordWe wish to congratulate Sarah Crawford, who has been promoted to our Accounts & Audit Senior Manager with effect from the beginning of September.  Sarah has taken over the responsibility for managing all of the accounts workflow and for line managing all accounts staff.  Sarah will also continue to look after her Charity accounts.  With Sarah’s extensive experience, she has already embraced her new role in Riley’s with a seamless transition to ensure business as usual in the accounts team.



As we progress into the final quarter of the year, we are delighted to announce a new Tax Manager to Riley & Co, Tim Musgrove.  Tim joined us on 19 October and brings a wealth of experience in Taxation and Payroll services. Tim will be a great asset to the practice and we are delighted to have him on board.

If you need any advice, then the team at Riley & Co are always happy to help.
