Empowering and Enabling Accounting Practice Owners

To Have Better Practices and Better Lives

Work With Me

I coach and mentor solo accounting practice owners with turnover from $0 – $1million.

Some clients are starting out and wanting guidance and support to fast-track success and optimise their practice model.

Some clients are disillusioned with the profitability of their practice, the lifestyle their practice is affording them and the lack of processes, systems, technology and culture within their practices.

And others are looking at ways to grow, scale or put in place a succession or exit plan. 

No matter the stage, the common goal  is FULFILMENT, FREEDOM and MONEY!

About Me

I’m an FCA and had a successful accounting practice for 18 years that I started from scratch in 1999.

I’m a wife and a Mum of two boys, aged 18 and 19.

I’ve always been motivated to do biz and life in a way that honoured the important things in life and that they could co-exist in  balanced and harmonious way.

I love people, numbers and small business. 

My bespoke coaching for accounting practice owners brings together my entrepreneurial and empathetic business and practice management skills.

I’ve been in your shoes. Let me show you how to PROSPER and SUCCEED with BALANCE!

Free Strategy Session

I work with clients in my coaching business in very much the same way that I did in my accounting practice.

I want to make a real difference in the lives and practices of my clients, so it’s important for us both to establish if we are the right fit for each other.

All of my coaching programs are bespoke and tailored to each client and this is a consultative process once it’s mutually agreed that we are a good fit for each other.

If you are committed to making changes in your practice, are willing to invest the time and money required and are looking for the guidance, support and accountability of a coach, click here to book a complimentary 45 minute STRATEGY SESSION to establish if I can help get you there FASTER and in a more DIRECT way!

About Me

I’ve been a career accountant all my life, working in a Big 4 and then a mid-tier accounting firm before starting my own practice in 1999.

This practice brought me so much satisfaction but it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Juggling a sucessful and growing practice, nurturing two little boys and being the wife,  mother, daughter, sister and friend I wanted to be, I had to re-evaluate what I was doing and why I was doing it before one of the important balls dropped. 

Motivated by the important things in life, I found a better way to run my practice and thankfully before it was too late! 

So after 18 years as a practice owner, I’ve pivoted and now coach and consult to accounting practice owners wanting to embrace contemporary practice ways that are a win/win for all – themselves, their families, their teams and their clients.  

I’ve developed quite a niche with accounting practice owners with children (or who would like to have children in the near future) who want a practice that not only ticks the boxes professionally but personally too. 

If this sounds like something you are looking for, I’d love to connect.

Why Work With Me?

My big why is to help accounting practice owners have better accounting practices and better lives.

Because when they do, they are far better advisors, they have better relationships with their staff and clients, they actually get to work in their zones of genius and they have better lives outside their practices.

“I have worked with Amanda for more than 5 years. In her role as Director of Gascoigne Consulting, Amanda proved to be a breath of fresh air. Amanda is forward thinking, utterly positive and a true leader in the accounting field. Amanda receives my highest recommendation.”

“Thanks so much for running this group your effort, knowledge and enthusiasm doesn’t go unnoticed.”

“I worked for Amanda Gascoigne for 9 years and learnt pretty much all I know about running an accounting firm from her. Amanda has a personality that is at odds with stereotypical depictions of accountants as boring, uninteresting people and this, along with her genuine concern and interest in the lives of her clients, draws them to her and engenders loyalty and goodwill from them. As much as people might like you as a person though, they will move on if you are not doing the best possible job technically, and Amanda spent considerable time at the firm on ongoing education to ensure all staff were as well informed on changes to the laws as possible. As well as the constant training that was made available, Amanda was good to work for because of the flexibility she afforded her employees. At the time I had 5 small children and my wife did shift work so that was very important to me. She was very accommodating when it came to the hours and times I worked and I try to do this now as I am an employer of mothers.

Towards the end of my time with her, Amanda instituted a programme designed to greatly improve the processes and productivity of the firm. I know this focus on systems and an adherence to the discipline required to finish the work in the desired timeframe has greatly enhanced the success of the business, and I deeply regret not being around to see that particular transformation through to the end. The ability to consistently finish work to a high standard in an organised manner in a reasonable time is the holy grail of accounting I think. I assume Amanda must feel the same way because I know she has done a lot of work in this area, and has reaped the benefits of that. I firmly believe that Amanda is a credit to our profession and I am not surprised that she has gone on to achieve success in other areas beyond doing accounting work.”

“If you’re stuck in your day to day business life & feel like you’re “living to work” NOT “working to live” give Amanda Gascoigne a go, I guarantee you’ll wish you did it sooner.”
