Dale specialises in the field of book keeping, management accounts, CIS and VAT and has a very strong working knowledge of sage accounting software.
Dale re joined the practice after a spell in industry and wanted to keep the day to day feel of the outside world whilst returning to the practice fold.
The range of clients Dale deals with is quite broad, ranging from building contractors & developers to numerous bus companies. Dale is often to be found at clients premises providing on site specialist support.
Personal Bio: Dale is a keen follower of sport (but by his own admission not a great partaker anymore which can be vouched by anyone witnessing his appearance for various Barrons sporting teams over the years!). He is particularly keen on his home town clubs in football & cricket, namely Brighton & Hove Albion & Sussex cricket club. He also enjoys his exotic holidays twice a year and just generally taking it easy away from work.
Mich enjoys interacting with clients on a regular basis, setting up bookkeeping systems, compiling monthly management accounts and producing specialist management information reports, including business cash flow forecasts and budgets.
With an accumulation of over 25 years of experience in public practice Mich has gained significant knowledge and expertise in handling all aspects of a management accounting role.
Personal Bio: Mich’s interests out of the office revolve predominately around rugby, as after hanging his boots up as a player in 2007 he went down the coaching path.
Mich currently coaches for the England RFU as a coach developer, as well as at a local rugby club and Essex county youth level.
When not at rugby his time is spent ferrying his children to various tennis and football matches in which they take an active part. He also (to the annoyance of his wife) relaxes by playing guitar and drums.

Jo is another member of our Team who has experienced what life is like in the commercial world, something Barrons prides itself upon as we think that experiencing first hand what clients face every day helps with understanding needs and dispensing relevant and practical advice.

Personal Bio: Jo is now the proud mother of two lovely children after many years of protesting that she never wanted kids!
We do not know when the maternal instinct finally arose but we do know that the children are at the centre of her world – along with her love of cars which takes up all of her remaining social time either building or repairing classics or visiting shows or Hot Rod events.
