Who We Are

When you think taxes and accountants you think grey suits, a stuffy manner and (well, let’s be honest about it)
something a bit boring. It’s ok, we know that’s what you were thinking.

And we don’t mind, because (joyfully) that’s not us at all.

We pride ourselves on being approachable, understanding and easy to talk to – and there’s not a single grey suit between us.

We are a part of our local community (in Crawley, West Sussex), but we also have customers around the world. We deal with companies of all sizes, yet treat every client as an individual.

What’s more, we really love what we do. Yes, we know that sounds a bit out there …after all, who loves taxes and adding up? But we do – because we build great relationships with all our clients and genuinely enjoy making their lives easier, by taking away the stresses of bookkeeping, taxes and accounting.

And the proof is in the pudding because most of our work comes through referrals from happy customers. Isn’t it time you became one of them? Get in touch today to find out how we can help.

Paula Titheradge FICB PM Dip

Founding Director

I love to help people. In business but also in my personal life. It’s just who I am. For over thirty years I have listened to, understood and helped my clients make their lives easier. When not in the office I have volunteered overseas for 12 years (and counting), with projects including Habitat for Humanity (which builds houses in Malawi), Vision Aid Overseas in Zambia and Ethiopia, and have cared for elephants, rhinos and orangutans in Borneo, Zimbabwe and Namibia. On these adventures I have met some amazing people, who care so much about their communities. It is this same ethos that I have tried to put into TaXave.


Julie Haggard

Senior Bookkeeper

In 2019 I left South Africa to be with my family, start a new adventure and join TaXave. And I have loved every minute of it. Having been a senior bookkeeper in an accounting firm for ten years, I didn’t know what to expect, but I am thrilled and privileged to be part of the TaXave team. I would describe myself as a quiet, diligent worker – I relish a challenge and love to learn new things. To that end, I am currently studying with the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) to get my certification. Outside work, I love spending time outdoors, taking country walks, swimming (when it’s warm enough!) and going on long, scenic drives with friends and my family, who I am very close to. I’d also love to visit Canada one day.


Iris Crampton


I’ve been bookkeeping for too many years to mention. But what I will mention is that I’ve enjoyed each and every moment of it. Working for my daughter Paula for the past 15 years has been great fun – and being a part of such a family-friendly business (with genuinely lovely clients!) is just perfect. I enjoy painting, walking and looking after my grandson. I can't wait to do some more travelling too.
