Specialisms include...

John has been a Partner in French Duncan since 2005 following its merger with O’Sullivan Cleary, where he had worked since 2000. Prior to then, John was Manager of the Business Services group in the Glasgow office of Grant Thornton.

John delivers accountancy, taxation and other business advisory services to clients ranging from private individuals to companies with seven plus figure turnovers over a diverse range of sectors including the third sector. 

In his role as an Entrepreneurial Services partner, John looks beyond the client’s business to help the owner/managers with their financial affairs. This is done during the lifetime of the business; when the owner/managers are preparing to exit the business and; when planning for life after business. Helping clients is largely based around dealing with accounting and tax compliance. Value is added through management reporting and other advisory services which businesses without any in-house financial expertise need either when starting up; growing and developing or; trying to maintain financial stability in recessionary times.
