My name is Abdul and I’m 25 years old.
I’ve been good with numbers since I was a child and have always known whatever career path I subsequently chose would involve numbers. I studied an accounting module in college and really enjoyed it, which led to me deciding to study accountancy at University.
My name is Ryan and I am 20 years old.
My home town is Preston, but I am currently studying for an accountancy degree at Stirling University. As I know it is essential for me to gain as much experience as possible to enhance my employability opportunities after my degree, I thought I would try and gain some practical work experience during the summer holidays.
My name is Sammy, and I’m 20 years old.
As I am approaching the end of my AAT Level 4 studies I have realised that to help me secure employment in my chosen field I require some hands on experience.
Many of the accountancy firms I approached in the Preston area didn’t have any suitable training positions. MJH Accountants, however, offered me two weeks’ work experience.

Tax-efficient savings for children
There are a number of ways to save or invest for children – some accounts are tax-efficient but rigid, others are often flexible but liable to tax. Interest earned from CTFs and Junior ISAs is paid tax-free, but the money is effectively locked in until the child is 18, at which time it belongs to the child. Standard savings accounts usually offer lower interest rates and the interest is likely to be taxable, but there will be flexibility on withdrawals and transfers, enabling the parent to keep a tight rein on the money.
Putting on the Ritz!
