Hazel is a qualified accountant and tax adviser. She began her career working in Corporate Tax for PwC, one of the UK’s largest accountancy firms. She has always had a passion for learning and development and combined this with her love of tax by joining Kaplan Financial where she taught accountancy and tax as well as managing the Southampton and Reading offices. Throughout this time Hazel continued to advise several tax clients and in 2015 decided to focus on her tax advisory work. In 2018, as the business grew, Hazel and Colin decided to combine their skills to create CHN Consulting Ltd. Hazel is a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
Colin started his accounting and management career as a Financial Controller within the P&O group during which time he obtained his professional accountancy qualifications. Over the course of the next 20 years, Colin has held a number of senior management and board positions within international organisations and has helped shape their strategy and direction. During his time at CHN Consulting Ltd he has been using his management experience to help clients with systems implementations, change management and operational improvement. He is a ProAdviser in Quickbooks and has significant experience in the use and implementation of SAGE accounting software.
