Margaret Lawrence

Finance Manager

Assisted by a bookkeeper, Margaret oversees all accounting records maintained by the business and is responsible for budgeting, cash flow management, financial report preparation and presentation to management and/or external entities and ensuring all taxation and statutory obligations are met.

Margaret is a Chartered Accountant with over twenty years of accounting, taxation and audit experience. After commencing her career with a large accounting firm, (Arthur Young, then Ernst & Young), attaining Audit Manager level, she moved to a smaller accounting environment to provide accounting, tax and audit services to a variety of small to medium sized businesses. Several years ago she left to become the sole Company Accountant for a small number of related companies. This experience and the prospect of assisting a committed and enthusiastic company with its financial management, led Margaret to accept the position of Finance Manager with Certatech in 2007.

Margaret joined Certatech when it had been operating for only 18 months and so assisted with the development of accounting systems and controls and the financial transition from a company to a trust structure. Attention to detail and a methodical approach to her work has allowed Margaret to deal with the myriad of financial challenges that a growing business presents.
