The Team

Our team is headed up by our founding director, Karen Levett FCCA

karenKaren’s accountancy training started with one of the large UK firms, Moore Stephens in Bath, dealing predominantly with the audit of larger UK companies. After a brief time working in industry as the financial cost accountant for an independent calendar printing company in Bristol, she continued her training at a small general practice in York.

Karen completed her ACCA qualification with a small accountancy firm in Milton Keynes and went on to help the current managing director build this into a successful and pro-active firm within the local area before becoming a partner in a long established practice in Bedford.

Levett & Associates Ltd was established to enable us to continue giving our clients the best possible service whilst taking advantage of the efficiencies and security available with investment in new technology and along with the team of associates Karen and her colleagues have built up through their years of experience, enabling Karen to have the tools and contacts at her finger tips to ensure her clients receive the best advice and guidance with their affairs.

Over the years Karen’s clients have included a multi-national company in the oil and petro-chemical industry and high net worth Russian individuals but it is owner managed companies to whom she feels she can provide valuable assistance in understanding and running their businesses, in both tough economic climates and when times are good by becoming as involved in the businesses as she can in order to better understand their individual circumstances and goals, not just focussing on the numbers and the filing deadlines that everyone has to deal with.

Whilst sometimes referred to as ‘not a typical accountant’, this is as much to do with the personal and tailored service Karen provides to her clients as it is with her love of shoes, motorbikes and, of course, 4×4 off-roading.

We look forward to meeting you soon and introducing you to 4×4 Accounting. Click here and let us move your tax efficiency up a gear!
