Catherine Bennett BSc(Hons) FCA CTA


Catherine Bennett Director and Accountant at Catherine Bennett Accountants CornwallI studied for my degree in Management Science at Swansea University in 1999.

I then completed my training as a Chartered Accountant with the ICAEW while working for a firm of accountants in London where I specialised in audit.

I won the Chris Reay Memorial Prize for my success in the exams, one of my proudest moments after the birth of my two children.

I returned home to Cornwall in 2004 and have since worked for three different firms’ of accountants.

I have specialised in Limited Companies, Partnerships, Sole traders, Corporate and Personal Tax, depending on the firm, giving me  a wide range of experience.

I qualified as a chartered tax adviser (CTA) in 2012 which helps me to ensure that I can assist clients to be as tax efficient in their affairs as possible.

When I am not working or reading I am spending time with my husband and two beautiful children and with any spare time I love a bit of gardening.

Joanna Horton ACCA


Joanna Horton Accountant at Catherine Bennett Accountants CornwallI qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in January 2018 having worked in accounts for many years. I originally worked in industry and for the last 15 years I have worked in practice. This gives me the advantage of understanding what it is like to be the client and enables me to help clients with their day to day bookkeeping problems and queries.

I have lived and worked in Cornwall all my life and realise how lucky I am to reside in such a beautiful County. I also understand the trades and industries native to the area.

I am very happy to be working at Catherine Bennett Ltd and believe we have an effective team with very diverse skills that give our clients piece of mind and a high level of technical advice and support in a clear, friendly way.

When not at work, I enjoy getting out and about in the fresh air, walking the various Cornish paths. I love dancing and challenging myself with new fitness classes and obstacle course races, I also like to meditate and learn more about the many associated practices.

Toby Farrell MAAT

Assistant Manager

I started working in practice in 2017 initially working on bookkeeping and VAT jobs alongside preparing management accounts monthly and quarterly. I then progressed to preparing sole trade, partnership and limited company accounts whilst completing my AAT level 4 qualification and gaining my MAAT status.

I have carried out client training on QuickBooks online, particularly during the switch over to MTD for VAT.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking long walks with my partner and our two dogs and I regularly play sports, particularly football and golf.

Helen Gill at Catherine Bennett Accountants CornwallI had worked with Catherine previously and a chance meeting and fortunate timing lead to me joining Catherine Bennett Ltd in June 2015.

With over twenty years’ experience gained from working in two other firms of Chartered Accountants in Cornwall, I was able to bring experience in accounts preparation for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies as well as bookkeeping and the preparation of VAT Returns together with various other office skills acquired after years of working in practice.

In my spare time I enjoy walking, running, reading and watching Formula 1. I also enjoy taking holidays in the UK as well as abroad, particularly in France.

Claire Hart

Accounts Assistant

I started my career in an industry setting and qualified as MAAT in 2017. I have been in practice for the last three years where I started as a bookkeeper before moving on to preparing the accounts and tax. At Catherine Bennett Ltd I am really enjoying utilising my skills with a variety of work while working with a friendly welcoming team who have a wealth of knowledge and years of experience.

At home I like to spend time with family and friends, and enjoy baking and reading. I am also a very active member of my local archery club, and travel all over the county for tournaments during the summer months.
