Ian L Adams (Dpl.) AFA AIAB

Having left Grammar school, Ian started his career in the legal profession in 1984 moving into the field of Accountancy in 1992 where he later qualified in 1995 with the International Association of Bookkeepers and the Institute of Financial Accountants


From beginning business in the humble surroundings of a back garden shed, Ian has brought Abacus forward to be a national presence in the field of Accountancy. Moving forward with modern day business and industry, Ian has propelled Abacus into a front-line forerunner in the field.


With a background in the legal profession, one of Ian's strongest developed fortes is defending businesses against in-depth investigations and enquiries of HM Revenue & Customs. With a remarkable success rate of (to date) 100%, HM Revenue & Customs have, on every occasion, either withdrawn their claims or agreed a mitigated settlement.
