Jay Wilson - MAAT MICB AATQB
My journey in accountancy started in 2017, I was working full time and part time when I started studying bookkeeping. Within two years I became a self-taught Accountant and won the title of AAT Member Of The Year 2019.
June 2019 saw the incorporation of Jaccountancy and I began engaging with clients weeks after qualifying as an accountant. As a new business owner, starting off was tough but I teamed up with some incredible organisations like The BoB Group, Bond Ambition and AAT.
Being a young geordie and smashing any typical stereotypes of an accountant, I decided to take part in an accountancy TV advert to help inspire the next generation of Accountants and helped to created student content online.
Within the firms first year we engaged with over 40 clients and with the help of 2 new team members, we collaborate together on an entirely digital business model.
Alongside Jaccountany I look after finance at Allay, In my new role I expanded the Finance team and upgraded the accountancy system to keep up with dynamic business growth.
