Ashton McGill recruits first Aberdeen-based accountant

Kyle Gordon

Dundee-based accountancy firm Ashton McGill has appointed Kyle Gordon as a senior accountant, marking the firm’s first Aberdeen-based recruit.

Mr Gordon became a fully qualified Chartered Accountant in October last year while working for another accountancy firm as an assistant tax manager.

Drawn to join Ashton McGill by its proactive approach, he explained: “Most accounting firms are reactive, often asking questions about transactions that happened up to 24 months ago, but Ashton McGill is different.

“The team focus on helping business owners make sound decisions based on the most up-to-date financial data.

“It’s important to me to work with a team focused on challenging the status-quo of traditional accountancy services to truly help people grow their businesses.”

In his new role, Mr Gordon will be responsible for the preparation and review of management accounts and year-end accounts.

He continued: “Management accounts go far beyond just the numbers. They also incorporate non-financial data like geography, demographics, and product costing to provide insights you wouldn’t otherwise have.

“At Ashton McGill, we’re having these conversations with clients to help them harness untapped non-financial insights to understand their business better.”

Additional responsibilities for the senior accountant will include preparation and review of corporate tax computations, forecasting and tax planning for clients.

Mr Gordon added: “Business owners can often find accounting and tax overwhelming and stressful, so working with them to develop their knowledge and provide clarity over complex scenarios is a really rewarding experience.”

Commercial director, Andrew McGill, said: “It is great to have Kyle as part of the Ashton McGill team, with an attitude that perfectly aligns with our values and objectives as a business.

“Having an accountant based in Aberdeen is particularly exciting, as we already serve several clients in the area and are eager to expand our presence and client base in the North East.”
