Andy Moore FCCA


Andy Moore was a founder partner of The Moore Scarrott Partnership in 2001. Prior to forming Moore Scarrott, he was a partner in a regional accountancy practice. He qualified as an accountant nearly 20 years ago, becoming a fellow in 1999 and is our lead Veterinary partner. Andy also deals with many of the aspects of managing Moore Scarrott.

He has written a considerable amount of editorial over the last 20 years for various professional journals, most recently writing the finance section of the BSAVA Manual of Best Management. He has also lectured on behalf of various organisations, including VPMA and BVA on a range of Veterinary matters.

Andy's Veterinary knowledge comes from being a Vet's son and seeing practice for the first 16 years of life. He therefore understands practice from the Vet's perspective. This insight and knowledge enables us to differentiate ourselves and deliver practical, pragmatic advice.
