Tiffany Da Silva

Tiffany Da Silva

Practice Manager

  • Service Level Agreement Management Team at Recruiting Group/Capita
  • Anti-Money Laundering Supervisor – MLRO
  • GDPR
  • Diploma in Recruitment Management
  • Workplace Confidentiality Certified
  • Inclusive Leadership Programme Certified
  • CPD Payroll Management
  • Experience and training in GDPR, Safeguarding, Equality & Diversity, Information Security Awareness, Health & Safety and Unconscious Bias
  • NVQ Level 3 Pre-School Key Worker

Tiffany started EP Tax in October 2021 as the Office Manager, and after 2 weeks was promoted to Practice Manager. Within her first month she instantly made some significant positive changes and continuously improves our service delivery by improving our internal systems and processes.  Tiffany has no previous experience in accounting but is the office ninja at everything else – all the stuff the rest of us have no clue about.

Her Practice Manager role includes overseeing all internal matters such as HR and employee progression, GDPR, IT, insurance, customer and supplier contracts and marketing.

We headhunted Tiffany from her previous role as she had all the attributes and skills to move our practice forward. She has a high level of initiative, has a wealth of experience and is an extremely fast learner.

Before working at EP tax, she was part of a high-profile team within Capita for the MOD and Army Recruitment for over 3 years. Whilst at Capita she was headhunted (we’re not sure she’s ever actually applied for a job before as she seems to just keep getting poached) for a new SLAM pilot team.  This included monitoring all teams and processes throughout the entire ARMY recruitment pipeline, reporting issues and implementing efficiency changes.  She was also a huge part of a specialist medical team that managed a new process starting in 2020.

Alongside working for EP Tax, Tiffany has a partner (who works across the road from our office!), two teenage sons who both play for local football teams and two dogs.  She loves Marvel movies, animals and can quite often be found down the local on a Friday or Saturday night.

Georgia Bury

Georgia Bury


  • Attending Wiltshire College – Working toward Level 2 AAT Apprenticeship
  • Xero Certified Advisor
  • AML & GDPR
  • Level 2 Theatrical Hair & Makeup
  • Level 3 Hairdressing

Georgia is a local girl and grew up in Ludgershall before moving to Salisbury at 21.  She originally trained as a hairdresser, which is why you will often see her sporting crazy hair colours! She then went on to work in the motor trade (in the office, not actually getting her hands dirty) and gave this up to become a full-time mum to her two daughters.

Georgia was originally assisting a client with their Xero bookkeeping and was doing such an amazing job we stole her for ourselves instead (with the client’s permission of course!).  She has recently started a Level 2 AAT apprenticeship at Wiltshire College, to further her career in accounting.

At home, Georgia is kept busy by her family.  She loves travelling, Italian food, murder documentaries and reading.  She is somewhat obsessed with the colour pink, even going as far as to paint her front door pink!

Elliot Sharlott

Elliot Sharlott


  • Attending Wellington Academy Sixth Form working towards A Levels

Elliot is the youngest member of our team and joined EP Tax in February 2022 at the age of 17. As a trainee, he is often tasked with some of the simpler tasks within the office such as data entry, filing, and designing marketing, however, he is always looking to learn and challenge himself.

This is his first job in an accountancy firm, joining the team from McDonald’s. This is a great step for him, giving him a platform to learn and develop some useful skills (not just flipping burgers). He is also studying his A Levels, with maths and further maths being two of his subjects, which link closely to his role within the office.

In his spare time, he enjoys playing and watching football. He has played for a number of years and regards himself as a relatively good player. When he isn’t playing, he’s probably watching his favourite team Aston Villa. You may also be able to catch him on the decks down the local pub as a DJ.
