I’m Alistair Main, director and head of assurance at one of the largest independent accounting and business advisers in the East Midlands, Duncan & Toplis.

With a network of offices across the region, Duncan & Toplis offers a full range of services to small, medium and large-sized businesses in the UK and overseas.

Based in Spalding, Lincolnshire, I advise business owners on relevant business and taxation planning matters which arise from both annual compliance work and changes in legislation. Supporting a full portfolio of clients, I have experience across a variety of corporate matters including due diligence, restructuring and strategic planning.

I embrace technology and innovation to streamline processes across Duncan & Toplis, leading us toward a one-team, service-led culture while developing the audit team into one of the best in the industry. This is demonstrated by us being shortlisted for Audit Team of the Year in the 2019 British Accountancy Awards.

In my spare time, I play guitar, I sit on the management board for the charity ‘Opportunity 2 Hope’, and I regularly volunteer at events for Compassion UK.
