Ian Hornsey FFA FAIA - Managing Director
I established Devonports in 1994 with a handful of personal friends as clients and since that time the practice has continued to grow. I am a Fellow Member of the Institute of Financial Accountants and from February 2013 became Chairman of the Essex branch of the Institute, as well as being actively involved nationally. I am also a Fellow Member of the Association of International Accountants, and have recently taken on the role of Quality Advisor, which sees me visiting other practising accountants on behalf of the Association to give guidance on Practice Assurance and Anti Money Laundering Regulations.
I enjoy keeping busy and in particular being able to look after and advise my varied client base, which includes small micro businesses to medium size clients, especially in this ever changing world of compliance and tax changes. I make sure that clients are both fully informed and compliant, and that they take advantage of the tax breaks that are available to them. My friendly manner ensures that the fear factor is removed for clients. Indeed most comment that I am unlike any other accountant that they have ever met.
I live with my partner, who I have been with for over twenty years. I enjoy fast cars and fine dining and the odd bottle of champagne.
