Harborough chartered accountants celebrate 20 years in business

A chartered accountancy practice in Market Harborough is celebrating 20 years in business with their most successful year ever. During that time, Elsby & Co has grown from a home-based enterprise to a company with offices across two counties.

Husband and wife owners Clare and Carl Elsby set up Elsby & Co in Northampton in 1993. Working from an office at home, the business offered the traditional services of a chartered accountant, combined with the services of a freelance financial director. By the year 2000, the business had grown significantly, moving to different premises within Northampton several times to accommodate a growing number of clients.

We grew relatively quickly, gaining a strong reputation in the area through word of mouth,” explains Clare, an accountant who carries out the company’s marketing as well as running their Market Harborough office. “Most of our clients are locally based with many being small businesses and family run concerns like our own.”

The company has continued to expand, most recently opening a second office at the Innovation Centre in Market Harborough in 2012. It now employs 20 staff at its two sites and works with over 800 clients from across Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

We are really proud that Elsby & Co has been in business for twenty years, and that it has become such a trusted and successful firm locally,” comments Clare. “As a small business ourselves, we have a good insight into our clients’ needs and work hard to build up a trust- based long term relationship with them. It is very rewarding to be able to offer other businesses the benefit of our knowledge gained through 20 years of working within accountancy and finance.”

The company has also expanded its range of services over the past year to include setting up and running networking events such as the monthly Business Lunch event which is held in Market Harborough, as well as a recent property roadshow offering free advice to landlords and first time buyers.

“One of the reasons that we have been so successful is that we don’t just ‘do the books’; we look at the business as a whole and offer advice on a range of issues from tax planning to business development,” explains Clare. We are also keen to continue running events which offer support and advice to the local community.”

Elsby & Co specialise in working with small business and start-ups, offering a proactive advice service which aims to help clients grow their businesses, and to ensure that they operate as profitably as possible.  For more information, visit www.elsbyandco.co.uk.
