Take a chance on better

Because chances make magic.

Just ask Eugene Amo-Dadzie: senior chartered accountant and GB sprinter ⭐

Here’s his story.

Now this is a story…

…all about how

Eugene flipped his life upside down.

He took a chance on sprinting

(from senior chartered accounts)

and he’s world-class; spectacular!

Beyond any doubt.

How did he get here?

Eugene trained and worked as a senior chartered accountant until one day, he took a chance on an old passion.


As it turned out, he was really (really) good at it.

100m in 9.93s kind of good.

So now he sprints for Team GB, is sponsored by Nike – and TaxScouts.

In short… he’s the nuts πŸ₯œ

TaxScouts x Eugene Amo-Dadzie

Let’s get into the detail. From 2018 to now, both Eugene and TaxScouts have been making moves. So sit back and scroll to see how it came to fruition.

In 2018, Eugene makes a decision to take up athletics after a pre-season football game and takes part in his first official training session.

Also in 2018, 3 ex-colleagues have an idea. Stress-free, online tax returns.Β Β 

Climbing the ladder of success

The first rumblings of success begin in 2019, when both Eugene and TaxScouts land big milestones.

Eugene gets his first competitive 100m win in 10.93s πŸ”₯

Meanwhile, TaxScouts lands a seed investment round 🌱 and appears on the tube AND gets its first proper β€œoffice” (a tiny box room).

Lockdown who?

In 2020, Eugene wins his first regional title at the Essex Championships in a record time of 60m in 6.63s πŸ… putting him on the radar of renowned world class coach, Steve Fudge. Eugene would later join Fudge’s group, training alongside Olympians.

TaxScouts reaches double figures in staff πŸš€ after securing Β£5m Series A investment from Octopus Ventures.

Infinity and beyond πŸš€

Eugene takes silver at the Tokyo Olympic British trials, then runs a new pb of 10.20s, winning him silver at the England Championships πŸ†

… and TaxScouts goes global! We launch in Spain πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ and broaden our horizons to launch UK tax advice. Plus we do our first post-COVID company trip.

Bringing it home

On the International Indoor circuit, Eugene runs 60m in 6.60s, making him the 31st fastest Brit of all time in this distance! WOW.

For TaxScouts, 2022 sees a successful crowdfunding campaign and some high profile partnerships. Plus a company trip to Estonia – home soil for two of our founders.

Chance makes magic πŸ’«

And just like that, Eugene makes history.

Eugene runs 100m in Graz in 9.93s, making him the 4th fastest Brit of all time in 100m and the 10th fastest European.Β 

Meanwhile TaxScouts partners with Crowdcube to help investors claim tax relief, builds bookkeeping software and now has a BOOMING πŸ’£ accountant community.

And the rest is history

You know the story from here, folks.

Eugene signs with TaxScouts, and then Nike – and then takes a sabbatical from accounting, ready for the summer πŸŒžπŸ…

TaxScouts launches stress-free limited company taxes! We also meet Eugene. And hit it off. And sponsor him: the World’s Fastest Accountant. And we’re obsessed.
