Director Bio


Ruth Dorans FCCA

After gaining several years’ industry experience in a senior management role, Ruth trained and qualified with the ACCA within a top twenty accountancy practice. Ruth joined Sherwoods in 2000 and assumed sole ownership of the practice in 2016.

Working across a wide range of industry sectors, within a 150 mile radius of Milton Keynes, typical services offered by Ruth and her team include: statutory and specialist audit, new business start-ups, personal and corporate taxation (planning and compliance), business planning and development, management accounting, cash-flow forecasting and budgeting, business valuations, forensic accounting and investigations and more.

Since 2016, Ruth has built up an extensive portfolio of clients and developed specialist sector expertise in hospitality, property, charities and not for profit organisations (including community amateur sports clubs, and community interest companies) and solicitors.

Believing in personal skill development and recognising that clients often needed more than just financial advice, Ruth has undertaken more study in managing business performance and change and has also qualified as an NLP business coach. She has recently obtained a master’s degree in forensic accounting from the University of Portsmouth.

With these additional skills, and abilities Ruth is able to work with business owners and managers helping them to identify and align personal and business goals with a view to achieving the results necessary to meet both.
