My name is Adele Russell and I own and run AR Accounting. Based in Weymouth we provide accountancy and taxation services for clients throughout the country, specialising in owner-managed businesses.
Originally from Hartlepool in the North East of England, I graduated from the University of Plymouth, with a degree in Accounting and Finance. After traveling around the world for a year I began a training contract at an accountancy practice in London where I qualified with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. I then continued training to become a Chartered Tax Adviser, all the while gaining invaluable hands-on experience with a wide range of clients.
In 2012, my husband and I moved to Weymouth where I set up AR Accounting, initially working part-time whilst I grew the business and raised our two daughters. In 2017, I had the opportunity to take over another local practice from a retiring accountant, at which point my husband left his job to look after the children while I concentrated on the business full time.
Now both my daughters are at school, my husband, also a qualified accountant, has started working for me, providing greater capacity to take on new clients whilst not forgetting the importance of a healthy work-life balance.
For both businesses and individuals, AR Accounting offers a personal approach based on the client’s individual needs, with a focus on helping them achieve their goals, by offering a wide range of services and tax advice.
