About Quick Start Accounting

Quick Start Accounting is the trading name of Chris Turner’s writing, authoring and publishing business. Chris Turner trained as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant within KPMG’s audit function, working with a range of SMEs through to FTSE 100 clients. 

In his spare time, he developed a love for teaching and charity work through various volunteer roles with St John Ambulance and was lucky enough to bring these experiences into his work at KPMG with a secondment to the global learning and development team and an opportunity to train as a charity specialist.

In 2013 he took the leap to move into teaching on a more permanent basis, joining Birmingham City University’s department of Accountancy and Finance, teaching on a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses and ultimately progressing to direct the undergraduate accounting programmes.

At the end of 2016, he joined ICAEW as a professional consultant, advising on accounting, audit, company law and ethical matters.
