Tom Payne, FCCA - Managing Director 

Abaqus is led by well-known local Gloucester accountant, Tom Payne. 
Tom has been ACCA qualified since 2012 and he has 16 years’ experience within the sector. He has worked with numerous clients and businesses in multiple sectors and of many different sizes, from the local electrician through to national PLC companies with multi-million pound turnovers. 
 
Abaqus was set-up in order to run an accountancy business that puts clients first. Clients often say they are fed up with accountants that: 
only speak to them once a year 
offer them no support on important matters 
can only be contacted within office hours 
typically file important returns at the last minute (or even late) 
delegate their account to a junior as they take on new or bigger clients. 
 
...This is not the Abaqus way! 
 
Our approach is to always treat every single client as an individual, and ensure they receive the service they need to achieve their ambitions and reach their full potential. 
 

And on a personal note… 

Away from work, you’ll find Tom enjoying a wide range of music, following the exploits of Gloucester Rugby Club and appreciating the finer points of steeplechasing… well he does live close to Cheltenham! He is also an enthusiastic runner, having raised many hundreds of pounds for charities and other local good causes.  
 
In addition, Tom is proud to be Treasurer of his local amateur Rugby Football Club, Longlevens RFC.
