Reluctantly joining his father’s accountancy firm in 1996 at the age of 23, Euan did not plan on accountancy becoming his profession. However unbeknown to him, it was to end up being his calling. After training with his father over a number of years, he soon began to realise how much he enjoyed the business side of accountancy & client management. Over time, Euan started to focus on the client experience aspect within the firm. Spending time with award winning firms in England and key influences within the industry to develop a clear vision for the practice. Focusing on the client journey rather than just the numbers. His immense enthusiasm for technology means he is always at the forefront of any new developments and it’s this drive that has allowed Total Accounting to continue to grow from strength to strength and become one of the top tech driven firms in Scotland.
At the tender age of only 18, Terri-Ann joined Total Accounting as an office assistant in 2005. Working closely alongside Euan in the early years, Euan carefully trained her in the ways of the practice and instilled in her the strict standards that we still hold dear today. Quickly proving herself within the office and becoming Payroll Manager after only two years with the firm, Terri-Ann went on to work extensively in Accounts, Business Tax and Personal Tax. Her vast experience in cloud accounting means she enjoys testing all new systems and discussing all the different ways that these can be integrated into the business. Terri-Ann manages the day to day running of the office and is integral in ensuring our high service standard is always maintained. Terri-Ann became a director of Total Accounting in 2017.
After finishing High School, Shelby trained with Customised Training based in Paisley, and it was through this programme that she was offered a position with Total Accounting as an office assistant in 2008.

Carrying on her progression within the company, Shelby continued her training in Accounts and Taxation. Shelby is now one of our most experienced Account Managers and looks after a vast number of clients, all of whom she maintains great relationships with. Shelby works closely with both our Directors and continues to learn and grow every day as our number one Accounts Manager.
