Beanies On The Run Limited is a forward thinking accounting firm that was established in August 2006 to help you small business folk out there do what you do best. And while you are doing that you can rest assured that you have the help and guidance of someone who understands what you are going through in business and the challenges you face to meet your goals.
Scott Townsend – Chartered accountant, father, business owner, teacher, writer, ex Milford Track Guide and ex hospitality manager. That’s me.
Fun at life but serious in business. Those are the values that we aspire to here. I have a long history in helping small businesses thrive. I enjoy working together with you to build on your expertise.
I have four sons and a great wife (don’t seem to be able to make girls) which were the inspiration behind the book I wrote called Mixed Up Muddled Up Jack. I have also taught papers at Queenstown Resort College and teach small business owners through Te Wananga Aoteroa.
So as well as being a chartered accountant I have rounded life experiences which means I can give you the help you need in every sense of business.
Stuart Wilson – I have worked as an accountant in one form or another all my working career, from audit to financial management to business advisory.
This breadth of experience makes me ideally suited to help you with all aspects of your business.
I have been married to Phillipa for the past 20 years and have 2 sons. In my downtime I am involved with the boys rugby club and I am a keen cyclist - I love getting out and about on the roads and tracks in the area.
Debbie Townsend – I am the one on the end of the phone when you call (well when it's not Scott speaking).
I am responsible for the administration and making sure you guys are kept happy. The boys keep me busy and sometimes Scott gets me to make his lunch but I tell him its not in my job description.
As well as all of this I run my own business advising in fertility and baby sign language (for the hearing baby). So I fully understand your needs.
Rico – Rico had great ambitions for an acting career. You may recall him from an early season of Remarkable Vets.
From humble beginnings on a farm, Rico soon found himself starring as the dog that a young family purchased from the local vet.
However it soon became apparent that Rico had anger management problems so he was better suited to a career in security. He is now chief of security and we pay him in dog biscuits which means we have not paid PAYE on his wages for years. Not sure if we should have said that on our website.
