Our friendly team is led by Sara Graff, a Chartered Accountant. We are all specialists in the tax and payroll aspects of employing people at home, and have all had first-hand experience of juggling work and childcare. We strongly empathise with our clients’ needs, and we’re always happy to talk, listen and help however we can.

Sara Graff

Sara has been a Chartered Accountant since 1982. She established Taxing Nannies in 1995, further to employing nannies for her own childcare. Sara also runs the general accountancy practice Sara Graff & Co, which she started in 2002, and Taxing Carers, which she established in 2014 to cater for people employed to look after the elderly or disabled in their own homes.

Outside of work, Sara likes to spend time with her family, regularly goes to the theatre and cinema, and has recently started learning Spanish.

Denise's teddy bear

Denise Connick

Denise joined Taxing Nannies in 1996, when the company was still in its infancy. With a background in HR at Marks & Spencer (in the days when it was called ‘personnel) Denise manages the office and marketing for both Taxing Nannies and Taxing Carers.

In contrast to dealing with complex employment issues and formulating contracts, on her days off Denise can be found at the Oval or Lords – or in front of the TV – indulging her love of watching cricket.
