About Hippo Accountants

Hi, I’m Wendy O’Dell Callaway

Being an expat myself, I’ve been there and done it, so I understand the difficulties with moving, getting your head around new tax systems and putting everything in place to start your new life abroad. It’s part of the reason I set up Hippo… .

Why I Created an Accounting Service That’s Different

I am a UK-qualified Chartered Certified Accountant, who is an expert in Expat Taxes, with over 25 years of experience, helping clients just like you (meaning I started this when I was still at school!)

After years working in traditional accountancy practices, I wanted more! I was fed up with peoples’ preconceived ideas of what makes an accountant and wanted people to realise we are not all boring and it was time to just be me!

I also wanted to share my expertise on expat taxes from both professional and personal experience, and take the stress out of UK taxes for expats, as well as offer advice and support. If you’re an Expat, get started with our Tax FAQs and Freebies for Expats

Why Hippo?

Now you are probably wondering why I called my company Hippo – if you’re not, you may want to skip the next bit.

  • Firstly, accountancy is often a grey area, and when working with you, we aim to make it as simple as possible so you are as happy as a hippo in mud.
  • Secondly, I love to travel and wanted to incorporate that into my company somehow, Africa is one of my favourite places, it’s a magical kind of place
  • And thirdly, and I think most importantly, hippos are one of my favourite animals, I mean who doesn’t like a water horse?

Hippo has grown from just me sitting in my home office alone a few years ago to now having an amazing team of accounting and tax experts who will work with you to ensure you get the best service possible.

Our passion is working closely with clients, helping them to understand the tax minefield that lies before them, and by being experts, we are able to do this.

We don’t use terminology that only accountants understand, and remember, nothing is a stupid question – we are happy to answer anything. You can probably tell that we are not your average accountants, but is that a bad thing?

While we have a specialism in Expat Taxes, we can still help with:

  • Capital gains
  • Landlords tax
  • Limited company accounts
  • Payroll

We look forward to working with you! Get in touch today
