Craig Beale FCCA (Director)

West Bromwich Albion old team photo. Craig Beale is a FCCA qualified partner at Lewis Smith in Dudley and huge Baggies fan.I moved into public practice in 1991, having spent my first couple of years at an insurance broker’s. I worked for two local practices and became AAT and then ACCA qualified. In 2005 I joined Lewis Smith & Co. and duly became a partner in 2007.

Where both I and Lewis Smith & Co. differ from other practices is that the advice given is always specifically tailored to our clients’ needs and presented in an understandable way.

Advice can range from compliance work, management buy-outs, tax planning and strategies through to exit strategies. But I also provide ‘down to earth’ and ‘practical’ business help when it’s needed. This could be a simple measure to reduce a busy owner’s administration burden or detailed costing calculations to help a client increase their profitability and wealth.

With a strong network of contacts in various professional areas, such as banking, law, financial advisors, IT and marketing I have gained an all round experience and have access to many specialist areas of business beyond the world of tax and number-crunching.

Outside of work, it’s simple: football! Or, to be more precise, West Bromwich Albion.

I was born in Mary Stevens hospital, Stourbridge and have stayed local to the Black Country area.

It’s your round!……….Pint of lager please!
