Chartered accountants Haines Watts have expanded with new offices in Southernhay West, Exeter.
The leading firm of accountants has grown exponentially over the last 12 months with an increase of 75% in staff members. This includes the creation of a business service division, from one person to a team of five specialising in bookkeeping, VAT and payroll.
And the recruitment drive continues with new Head of Tax Mark Johnstone, and an Accounts & Audit Senior joining the team by the end of the year, as well as further job opportunities planned for 2018.
Ben de Cruz, Managing Partner Haines Watts Exeter said: “It’s been an extremely busy and successful year with our business and client bases increasing by 10%, mostly in the small to medium enterprise (SME) sector, and mainly in taxation and accounting services. As a result of the increased portfolio, our team has grown considerably, and we were bursting at the seams. When space became conveniently available in the neighbouring office, we grabbed the opportunity to future-proof the business, and continue to go from strength to strength.”
The Exeter firm, which also has a Crediton office,
has taken the first and second floors of an adjacent building in Southernhay West.
As a result, they have increased the original office space by c. 1223 sq. ft., adding up to a third to its existing floor plan.
With over 60 offices around the UK, and over 35,000 clients, Haines Watts is a Top 20 firm of Chartered Accountants that specialises in the owner managed business sector.
