Helen Binns


I’m Helen and I manage a diverse portfolio of clients in the world of SMEs and owner-managed businesses. I’ve been providing invaluable guidance to businesses across a range of sectors, including professional services, manufacturing, and retail for over two decades. But that’s not all…

I have a real passion for the charitable and not-for-profit sectors too, where purpose is so important and aligns to my values. Linked to this I’m a trustee at Pendleside Hospice where I can use my financial expertise and insight to support the hospice’s mission to provide compassionate care to those in need.

I like to support my clients with a comprehensive range of services, from strategic planning to compliance matters and believe in building strong bonds with clients, to get to know them on a personal level and understand their uniqueness. By doing so, I can partner with them on their journey to success, helping guide their businesses forward.

My story
I joined the firm in December 2022 as an experienced partner and I feel I’ve found my home in a growing, successful, connected and fun place to work. I trained at a small firm in East Lancashire and also had a stint working in industry at a plastics manufacturer. I bring a heavy East Lancs influence but am enjoying new territory too. I’ve always enjoyed developing my team and their skills and this continues to put a smile on my face. Business, accountancy, tax and compliance matters aren’t everyone’s idea of fun but I think I’m pretty good at translating so that clients understand how I can help.

I do this too…
I love an early morning gym session and I’m a pretty keen runner too, competing mainly with myself. I’m a Run Leader at my local Ramsbottom Running Club, trying to motivate others in whatever way I can. I have a real passion for travel, especially city breaks, but at home just get me outdoors, followed by nice food and wine and I’m happy.
