Say hello to experienced finance professional, Waqas Chughtai, who is taking the reins at Rosemary Bookkeeping Reading.
Waqas Chughtai has had an extensive career working in accountancy and finance and is now adding another string to his bow by taking over as the owner of Rosemary Bookkeeping Reading.
The business, which was previously run by Mike Wallace, has been placed in the capable hands of Waqas, following a sale earlier this year.
Waqas is no stranger to what it takes to run a small business. With many years of experience behind him in growing companies in the accountancy sector and undertaking multiple roles in his impressive career.
A senior and fellow member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, Waqas started his career at KPMG and has since grown his position and career in many companies including GO-ERP and Avanade, before starting his practice – WAC & Co. in 2012.
These saw him taking on many roles, as he grew to Finance Manager, Financial Controller, CFO, and ultimately a Finance Director position.
Waqas says he “Left [his] permanent role in 2012 because [he] always wanted to be in practice and managing [his] own business.”
During the initial phase of growing his business, Waqas worked part-time, simultaneously working with Evernote, a sister company of Microsoft.
“I contracted with them for a few years,” Waqas says. “[Working on] system implementation on the financial module side of things and consistently growing my practice in the background.”
As such, Waqas is well-prepared to cover all processes required in supporting new and existing clients of Rosemary Bookkeeping Reading and to grow the business even further. It is providing this service to even more clients, particularly in an ever-changing financial landscape that Waqas says will be of high value to him.
“A lot is changing,” he says.
“In regards to, let’s say, MTD. MTD was a very recent phenomenon. Larger companies are prepared for this because they have the forms and the talent to guide them.
But smaller businesses in particular are confused as to how it affects them. So, [we want] to make sure that we are there to help them.”
