We have a close association with the French accounting company AFA Expertise SARL and its proprietor Joanna Reintjes FCCA CTA who completed her training with Derek Rothera & Company in 1986.
Joanna who, in addition to her UK qualifications, obtained a full Expert Comptable qualification in France in 2009, is based in Sains on the Brittany coast. She provides assistance to our clients who have cross-channel interests and conversely we provide advice on UK accounting and taxation matters to her French clients.
We are, to a certain extent, a multilingual office with many of the staff speaking more than one language including French, Italian, Krio, Bengali, Urdu, Hindi, Farsi, Polish and Mandarin & Cantonese
To cement his attachment to the French (his grandmother having been a Parisienne), in 1967 Derek and friend were the first and, quite likely, the last to cross the English Channel in a pedalo.
