John Thomas

Director and Founder

John is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) having qualified in 1985 and then received his Fellowship in 1990.

He worked in corporate finance for a number of large companies for many years including Wickes plc and Allied Domecq plc. In 2005 John decided to move away from the corporate world and went into public practice. After three years of retraining John achieved his ACCA practising certificate. The following year John started this practice in Newport as part of the TaxAssist Accountants network. Since 2009 the practice has grown significantly and now has in excess of 250 clients, serviced by John and his team. In July 2017 John decided to leave the TaxAssist Accountants network and practice independently.

John is also honorary treasurer and a director of All Wales People First, an organisation that represents the voice of men and women in Wales with a learning disability.

In his spare time John enjoys walking the dog, theatre and, more recently, skiing, a sport which he took up for the first time at the age of 60!
