James Fox - FCCA ACA



Audit & Compliance


I am a partner at Menzies and provide audit, accounting and consulting services to a wide range of SME clients. I joined Wagstaffs in 2016 and became a partner in 2019. I became a partner at Menzies following a merger of the two firms in 2023.

I lead the audit and assurance team in the Stevenage office, managing the day to day running and development of the audit team. I enjoy getting to know my clients and working with them to understand their compliance and taxation obligations.

I also provide accounting and consultancy services to owner managed businesses, acting as their main point of contact within the firm, ensuring they have access to the specialist advice required to develop tax and commercial strategies.

My clients span a broad range of business sectors, including farming, forestry, agribusinesses, technology, manufacturing, construction  and distribution businesses.

I enjoy everything the countryside has to offer. Outside work, I enjoy working and training my cocker spaniels, rugby, real ale and getting out on my mountain bike on the muddy trails of Hertfordshire.

I am a member of the ICAEW Farming & Rural Business Community and a member of the CLA (Country Land and Business Association).
