Alastair McDade

Accounts Manager

Chartered Accountant (ACA), Xero Certified Accountant

I am part of the Andrew Price & Co accounts team, joining in 2014, preparing year end accounts, management accounts, KPI data and company tax returns that your client manager will discuss with you. I started my accountancy career in 1996 and I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2000 specialising in the accounting and taxation affairs of owner managed businesses.

What do I do here at Andrew Price & Co?

I work closely with you to ensure the numbers are accurate and prepared on time. Part of my job is to let you know exactly what we need to prepare your accounts and answer any questions you have so that I can turn them around for you promptly. As I’m the person who prepares the accounts I am also in a unique position to see if there is a better way to do things that may save you time.

Most of the accounts I prepare are based on the Xero cloud accounting software, with some on Sage Line 50 and this means that I can answer questions that might arise with your accounts software package.
