Passionate about numbers!
Hello! I'm Nicola. I created Ping following a successful career working for companies that included Microsoft, SAP and Hewlett Packard. I've been involved with SME and corporate sectors, manufacturing, IT, services and defence, so I've built up a fair bit of knowledge about how business works and what businesses need from their accountants.
Strange as it may sound to some, I love numbers, systems and all things to do with IT and accountancy. Nothing makes me happier than a perfectly balanced set of books!
I’ve been a contractor so I’ve experienced the IR35 regime from both sides. I’ve also been a company secretary and director so understand the legal obligations for Directors of Limited Companies
The Ping team has over 50 years’ collective experience in accountancy and tax planning, with clients in fields as diverse as physiotherapy and financial services. We like to think they stay with us year in year out because of the quality of service we deliver and the level of trust we’ve built up with them.
Ping HQ is conveniently located near Basingstoke, handy for the M3 and M4 corridors and ideally situated for our clients in Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey and beyond. And with digital accounting and taxation, of course, distance is no object.
Our aim is to help our clients run their businesses effortlessly, efficiently and profitably. We’re always ahead of the game – we regularly review their affairs so that we can alert to them to any changes that might improve their bottom line or to any tax planning opportunities they might otherwise have missed out on.
You’ll find us friendly to work with, quick on our feet and responsive to your needs. The cat’s pyjamas, in fact!

"When I set up my business, luckily a friend recommended Ping. Since then, not only has she completed my tax returns quickly but on a couple of occasions she has quite literally saved my life! She is extremely knowledgeable and professional and I simply cannot recommend her enough".
