N-Accounting is a sum of its individual parts; the team. Getting to know our clients personally is as important to us as understanding their finances so, meet the people behind the service and success…
Nishi Patel | BSc ACMA: Managing Director
Nishi started N-Accounting in 2014 after a successful career in corporate finance with Faccenda & Homebase as a Management Accountant and Financial Analyst. He has been a Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA) since 2007.
Professionally, Nishi is known for the high standard of tax planning that he provides to his clients and the ability to communicate effectively. He has a knack for identifying what the real issues are and creating actions to deal with them. Listening skills are key to this ability and he often helps clients to prioritise their financial well-being thus leading to peace of mind and less stress all round.
Nishi loves building productive relationships that stand the test of time and let him focus on his Family. That’s why he’s put a business model in place that looks after his customers but also gives him real flexibility in the way he lives his life. He is excited by the people he meets and incredibly passionate about helping people fix their problems as well as building a solid, reliable reputation.
He can’t stop talking about Float forecasting and Xero accounting software packages, these are central to the system he has built to help business owners understand their finances and take control.
He and his wife Deepa have two beautiful daughters called Arya and Sienna. Nishi would like to be remembered as someone who always kept to his word and did everything to the best of his ability, and we think he’s well on track to achieve that.

Becky Neal | Accounting Manager
Since joining the team in June of 2019, Becky has been looking after self-assessments within the business and providing support with the accounts. Deciding to take the risk of leaving education and joining the world of work, she has thrived on having more independence, rather than being stuck in a school environment. She wanted to work for N-Accounting because she knew that she would be given amazing opportunities to learn & grow her own skills as well as getting the chance to explore different aspects of a small business.
The best thing about Becky’s role is the varied tasks she gets to perform. Combining both the technical aspect of the business and the customer service side, Becky gets to put her knowledge and skills to the test as well as helping clients with their cashflow planning and understanding their business finances.
Personally, Becky loves getting out and about! Any holiday, weekend away, festival, or concert that she can get to, she does! She is a self-confessed ‘shopaholic’, with a love of clothing and other bits to brighten up her day! Beyond that, Becky is lucky to have a very close family network, spending lots of time with her grandparents and other members of her extended family.
What people may not realise about Becky is that she loves working out and going to the gym! She wishes she had more time to spend on activities like that. She also looks back on her school days and wishes she could have joined more sporting and dance clubs – but she was always too shy!!
