The ex-European Commission accounting officer and former Accountancy Age personality of the year 2003 is offering consulting services for ‘British companies with interests in southern Europe’ in areas including governance, audit, financial reporting, strategic planning.

The Argentinian-born accountant, now living in Spain, told Accountancy Age that she had ‘not yet’ secured any contracts and that she would initially be working on her own but would look to hire people ‘if necessary’.

She added that she would be specialising in financial reporting, audit and internal controls.

Andreasen was thrust into the spotlight four years ago for raising concerns about the EC’s accounting systems and refusing to sign off its 2001 accounts.

She continued to hit the headlines after former European Commissioner Neil Kinnock suspended her from the post of chief accounting officer later that year for what he said was a ‘breakdown in relations’.
