Forrester Boyd Chartered Accountants are delighted to celebrate another success through its trainee accountant programme. Ben Godbold has passed the final exams of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and can now celebrate being a fully qualified chartered certified accountant, adding more valuable members to the growing team at Forrester Boyd’s Louth office.

Ben joined Forrester Boyd in 2017 following studying at King Edward VI Grammar School in Louth. Throughout his training Ben has been working very closely with the Agriculture and the Academy sector teams. Speaking about his experience Ben said, “I work as part of the academies team and carry out audit services for single academy trusts and large multi academy trusts. I prepare the financial statements, forecast returns, assist with day to day bookkeeping, reconciliations and undertake internal reviews and external audits.

I also prepare accounts for sole traders, partnerships, limited companies, charities, personal and company tax returns and VAT returns.”

Ben is looking forward to continuing to learn and progress within the firm. He likes to be seen as approachable, knowledgeable and helpful.  Outside of work, Ben enjoys watching any type of sport, particularly football. He also enjoys a few rounds of golf.

Partner responsible for HR, Philip George said, “I am delighted to see Ben rewarded for his hard work qualifying as a Chartered Certified Accountant. The training programme is intense with a lot of study and exams to contend with on top of the usual day-to-day work. Ben should be very proud of this fantastic achievement. Forrester Boyd prides itself on delivering an exceptional training programme for our students to provide them with all the skills and experience they need to become a proficient Chartered Certified Accountant.”

“This is yet another example of the success in our strategy in recruiting and developing home grown talent.  This, combined with excellent accounting tuition, allows Forrester Boyd to continue to recruit, develop and retain top quality accounting staff”.

Forrester Boyd is one of the leading independent chartered accountancy practices in Lincolnshire and the Humber region, with over 150 staff based at offices at Grimsby, Louth, Scunthorpe, Skegness, Beverley and Hull.
