Meet the team
Clairwood Accounting was established in 1975 as Clairwood Secretarial offering book-keeping and payroll services. With the advent of computers David and Barbara Burstow assisted clients in the transfer of their records onto software. The partnership has always been proactive in either providing services in-house that clients needed or assisting clients on-site.
The partnership was renamed Clairwood Accounting in 2001 to reflect the diverse range of business and accountancy services being offered and, in common with many professional partnerships, became an LLP in April 2017.
David Burstow, Senior Partner, is a Fellow Member of the Association of Accounting Technicians, the Institute of Financial Accountants, the Institute of Public Accountants and of the International Association of Bookkeepers.
Our Senior Accounting Technician, Suzanne, joined our team in 2013 with over twenty years' experience in senior management roles mainly within the retail sector, with accountability for sales and operations, finance, audit, security and stock management functions. In addition to all of these practical business and managerial skills, Suzanne also has an Honours degree in Business Studies. Following her decision to transfer to the professional sector, Suzanne has become a fully qualified Member of the Association of Accounting Technicians and an AAT
Qualified Bookkeeper. Suzanne undertakes a wide range of accountancy, financial and taxation tasks as well as supervising Clairwood's professional compliance matters.
In 2015, Debbie joined Clairwood Accounting bringing with
her over ten years of experience in a variety of roles within the Retail,

accounts, assist clients with their bookkeeping and cashflow requirements, and
