Roland Moss Director Butt Miller

Roland Moss

ACA, FCCA, Director​

With a seasoned background in finance and a passion for business growth, our Founder and Managing Director, Roland Moss, brings a wealth of experience and innovation here at Butt Miller.

Roland trained with KPMG, where he developed a deep understanding of the intricate world of finance and the need for innovation. He then spent over 10 years working as a finance director for fast-growing marketing businesses, steering them through the various stages of growth.

Fuelled by his vision to offer more businesses with forward-looking services that go beyond the basics, he established Butt Miller, the independent, full-service chartered accountancy practice we see today. Since 1982, it has been Butt Miller’s mission to offer more proactive solutions that support business owners in developing and growing their own businesses to help them achieve their financial goals.

Adding value and providing work to a consistently high standard is fundamental to what we set out to achieve at Butt Miller, and we have developed our systems and team with this in mind.

Roland is primarily responsible for overseeing the part-time finance director and outsourced finance department services, as well as driving forward the growth and development of our own business.

Beyond the boardroom, Roland has many interests, including golfing, overseas travel and riding the highs and lows of following Southampton FC with his two sons.

Jane Moss

ACA, FCCA, Director

Jane is a seasoned professional who oversees a wide range of critical operations at Butt Miller. Her responsibilities include facilities management, HR, regulatory compliance, internal accounts, VAT, debt collection, payroll, IT, insurance, and training – i.e. essential tasks that others prefer to avoid!

She has honed her skills over the years, having earned a Chartered Accountant qualification in 1996 while working at KPMG in Southampton. After that, she gained valuable industry experience at Smith & Nephew and DJO Global before returning to practice. 

When she’s not busy with work, Jane cherishes time with her family and enjoys walking her dogs, exploring new destinations, and indulging in culinary pursuits.

Alison Elliott BFP ACA FCCA MAAT AATQB, Director

Alison Elliott


Alison qualified as an accountant in 2005, having been with Butt Miller since 2001. In 2012, she became one of the firm’s Responsible Individuals (RI). Her role includes statutory accounts preparation, corporation tax compliance, company secretarial, management accounts, and outsourcing advisory services. Alison also specialises in R&D tax relief, share valuation, and succession planning. 

Alison works with a broad spectrum of clients, from small owner-managed businesses to large conglomerates. Her proactive approach helps our clients overcome challenges, and she takes great satisfaction from seeing their companies grow.  

Outside of work, Alison values the company of her family and friends, good food, and exploring new places.

Susan Ambrose ACA, FCCA, Audit Director

Susan Ambrose

ACA, FCCA, Audit Director

Susan has led our audit team for many years and is also active in our training, development, and apprenticeship programmes.

Susan has more than 25 years of experience, including at a top 15 firm. She has amassed a vast amount of knowledge from working with various entities, including construction and professional services. She has also worked extensively with group auditors on overseas subsidiaries. Susan’s experience allows her to identify the best approach and adapt to changes in an entity’s risk profile and structure in a practical way.

When Susan is not running around after her family, her interests include walking, volunteering and working as a treasurer for local organisations.

Paula Sparrow

Tax Director

Paula oversees our tax department. She is an excellent problem solver and gets satisfaction from sorting out complex tax issues and relaying them to our clients in a clear and understandable way.

Paula’s ambitions didn’t start with tax — you don’t choose tax; it chooses you, as they say! She has worked for large and small firms, so she has encountered a huge variety of tax issues in her career but still learns something new every day. Trusts and estates are a particular passion, which led her to sit the STEP exams.

At home, Paula’s attention is consumed by two rescue dogs and a geriatric cat. She enjoys watching sports (except football) and reading her beloved Kindle.
