Meet The Expert: Chartered Accountant, Abi Barker
Abi began training with top 30 accountancy firm Price Bailey LLP in 2004 and became a Chartered Accountant in 2008, working on a variety of jobs including audit, company accounts and tax, management accounts, VAT and personal tax. Although the experience gained was invaluable, she quickly learnt what bothers small businesses when they are swimming in amongst the big fish.
She founded PBH Accounting Ltd in 2012 together with her husband Paul.
“It’s not just the accounts, it’s the advice Abi offers every step of the way. She knows my business and she knows the most efficient way for me to manage my finances” – Caroline Lock, Director at Cammed Recruitment
PBH Accounting is a Cambridgeshire based accountancy firm solely for small and medium businesses and individuals. They vowed to always give their clients clear up-front prices (they recognise that unexpected costs are a big deal to a small business), to treat you like the important client that you are with personal service every time, and to give you plenty of notice when they need information from you for those tax deadlines.
A local small business dedicated to supporting your local small business.
A keen horse-rider and mother of two, the desire to have more flexibility with working hours means Abi can share this flexibility with you. People don’t always work 9-5 anymore; evening appointments are available and Abi regularly visits clients at their place of work or their homes.
Based in Cambridgeshire but operates throughout East Anglia.

“I really like the personal service PBH Accounting offer. Abi comes over to my business and spends a day or two here with me each year. I simply keep all my receipts and I know that she will work through it all and sort it out for me.” – Nessie Poston, Bucks House Country House B&B
