Emma Hignett has recently joined her parents as a director, in their family accountancy practice in Cromer, Timothy Hignett and Partners Limited.

When Emma left school, she began her accountancy training with Larking Gowen, working at their Norwich office.  Here she gained experience in dealing with both small businesses and as well as large, multinational companies.  This enabled her to build up a cross section of knowledge in taxation, audit and accounts preparation.

This experience gained, along with support from her employers, colleagues and family meant that she was able to qualify as an Accounting Technician with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) in June 2001, making her one of their youngest members at only nineteen years old.  Having carried out three years of exam based studying, Emma decided to take a year's break from her education to enable her to concentrate on her career with Larking Gowen.

After a year without study, Emma found that her drive and dedication to improve her skills and knowledge pulled her on to continue studying and aim for the full Certified Accountancy qualification.  At this time, Emma transferred to Larking Gowen's Holt office, where she has spent the last three years of her career.  In February 2005, she passed her final exam and is now a member of the Association of Certified and Chartered Accountants (ACCA).  She would like to thank both the partners and her colleagues here for supporting her through her studies and providing her with the opportunity to follow in her father's footsteps.

In March of this year, Emma joined Timothy Hignett and Partners Limited at their premises in High Street in Cromer, where they have been based for a number of years.  Tim, Emma's father, has over twenty-five years of accountancy experience.  Emma hopes to link her father's wealth of experience with her youth and knowledge of current affairs, which will provide their clients with sound advice with an up to date slant.

Emma is looking forward to providing a personal, reliable service to her clients, giving them the guidance needed to develop and improve their businesses both now and in the years to come.  Currently, the company employs a number of full and part time employees so that Timothy Hignett and Partners Limited can provide various services including: Sole trade, partnership and company accounts; self assessment and CIS; book-keeping and management accounts; VAT; cash flows; PAYE and payroll.

Outside of work Emma has many passions, including Norwich City Football Club.  She has a season ticket at the club and has supported them for a number of years.  She likes to keep fit in her spare time, yoga being her preferred type of exercise.  She also enjoys eating out, socialising with family and friends and travelling.  Emma also partakes in adventure sports from time to time such as hot air ballooning, parachuting and hand gliding.

If you would like to discuss your accountancy and taxation affairs with Emma please contact her on 01263 515546 or visit 7 High Street, Cromer.  The office opening hours are 9.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
