Anne-Marie Gates

Position and specialisms

Anne-Marie is based in the New Forest office and deals with a broad range of clients from all industry sectors but particularly owner managed businesses.


I believe in working closely with clients and with the strong team at PcW to exceed our clients' expectations.

Anne-Marie specialises in business start ups and can advise on all aspects of starting a business and in particular how a business should trade. She also prepares cash flows and projections, not only to new businesses but also to existing businesses who require additional borrowings or are refinancing. This covers all business sectors from solicitors to hospitality, the marine industry to the construction industry. Anne-Marie likes to work closely with clients and believes in the personal touch.

Education and career

Anne-Marie was educated locally in New Milton and Brockenhurst and joined Willis Parsons, a predecessor firm of Princecroft Willis, at 19 years of age.

Anne-Marie progressed through the ranks and after qualifying as a Certified Accountant in 1990, became manager a few years later and eventually a partner on 1 February 2004. In 2008 Anne-Marie was admitted as an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

Personal information

Anne-Marie is a keen MG enthusiast, owning a 1966 MGB roadster, and enjoys cooking and gardening in any spare time. She also enjoys jetting off to some exotic location or driving down to the West Country to get away from it all.
