ChadSan in the Spotlight - Lija Rahman

1) What attracted you to accounting?
I studied economics which was my first business experience and from then I knew I wanted to go into finance. It was clear to me that an accountant is someone every business needs so I know there will always be a demand for one.

2) What is the most frequently asked question by clients?
Dividends! The most popular question I get has to be how much dividend can be taken out and the tax implications.

3) What's your favourite part of your job?
When clients do well! I think client appreciation plays a huge factor. It is very satisfying to know that a client is thankful for all your hard work especially after a great outcome. I also enjoy talking to people so communication is very important to me.

4) Do you have any hobbies?
Yes but I don't want to sound like a granny. I love crochet and baking! I make an amazing chocolate fudge cake with Kit Kat on

the sides and M&Ms on top. I am looking forward to Halloween to show off my skills, I heard we are going to do a Chaddesley Sanford Halloween Bake Off!

5) What would you have been if not an accountant?
A combination of aromatherapy and dermatology. Perhaps have a shop with natural skin care products. My goal would be to make everyone feel beautiful.

Bonus: What is one interesting fact about yourself?
I think many people will be surprised to know I have done bungee jumping. It was an amazing feeling but I don't think I could do it again!
