Julia qualified as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant at a medium-sized Guildford firm of accountants in 1989. Soon after this she moved into the world of training and later added technical and quality control work.
Julia is extensively involved with the ICAEW as a volunteer and is currently chair of the ICAEW Ethics Advisory Committee, a member of the ICAEW Board and Council and the ICAEW Vice-President elect (she takes up this post in June 2020). She is also a past chair of the ICAEW Technical Advisory Committee, a former member of the Financial Reporting Faculty Board and of the AAT's audit committee and a past president of the Thames Valley Society of Chartered Accountants.
Julia's past experience includes working in top 10 and smaller firms of accountants in technical and training roles and for listed companies providing information and training services to accountants. She has experience in specifying software requirements as a subject matter expert, providing guidance on disclosures or other accounts presentation requirements.
Julia is a keen technical author and has had many articles published in journals such as Accountancy, True and Fair (the ICAEW Audit Faculty Magazine), Chartam (the Thames Valley Society of Chartered Accountant's magazine) and London Accountant (the London society's online news). Julia was the author of Tolley's Corporate Fraud book and more recently revised the CCH publication Preparing Company Accounts: Small and Micros when this was initially updated for FRS 102 and 105.
