Oltia Books started out in 2008 and was the brain child of Pippa Forde.
Pippa is the Director and has been working as a bookkeeper for a few more years than she is prepared to mention, using the old red books when she first worked for the family business (Regent Cinema, Redcar) many years ago. She has seen the introduction of computerised systems and keeps her skills up-to-date with all the latest systems that are now available either desktop or online.
But where does the name OlTiA come from?
It is made up from the names of her daughter’s, Oleta & Tia!
Pippa doesn’t work alone as there are a team of bookkeepers at Oltia Books and we cover most areas of Sussex within an hours drive of Crawley though we have clients further afield.
Our senior bookkeepers are Sue Thornton & Tracy Glover.
Sue has come from a background in Financial Services and joined the team in 2010 after taking time out to be with her family. She was looking for a challenge with the ability to update her skills and studied with AAT gaining Level 2 & 3 in Accountancy.
Tracy joined the team in 2014 already having her AAT Level 3 and her previous employment was within an accounting department in industry. She is a busy mum of two and wanted flexible hours whilst gaining further experience in all aspects of bookkeeping.
