With a wonderful view across the fields and hills surrounding Montgomery, Melanie Corfield, an experienced Chartered and Management accountant, sits in her office working on the accounts of one of her many clients. Born and bred in Newtown, Melanie has an extensive knowledge of this part of mid-Wales and she was previously a Partner at Morgan Griffiths LLP in Newtown until 2011 when she started her own business, Corfield Accountancy Ltd.
She has a background of over 25 years in the accountancy world, being first a commercial accountant in industry and then moving into private Practice. Melanie has clients from across the region, travelling to Shrewsbury, Aberystwyth, Aberdovey, Newtown, Welshpool and other places across Powys and Ceredigion. She is a general practitioner and her clients include sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and charities. She also offers a VAT and payroll bureau service.
Melanie has just taken possession of a Nissan Micra Acenta from Greenhous Nissan in Shrewsbury. Already a Nissan fan as she has an X-Trail which is used to haul her caravan, she was looking for a smaller, economic vehicle to get her around the county lanes and beautiful Welsh countryside.
Melanie says of the Micra: “I wanted a good, reliable small car which was economical and looked good – and it had to be white! I fell in love with the Micra and it suits my working schedule perfectly. It has good storage, has 5 doors, only £30 road tax a year and it has reversing sensors which I need!” Not that Melanie spends all of her time on the road.
In her spare time she runs taking part in recent years in the London Marathon in aid of the Severn Hospice, and the Great North Run, Silverstone and Ironbridge runs. At present Melanie just runs for enjoyment.
Living in Newtown she is often to be seen running in Dolerw Park and around the industrial estates “clearing my head and just thinking”. Melanie believes creativity is important and is very confident that future planning should be a part of the accountancy advice given to her clients.
