Harborough move creates record growth for local chartered accountants

A firm of chartered accountants has reported a rapid growth in their business since opening an office in Market Harborough last year. Elsby & Co (www.elsbyandco.co.uk), who moved into the Innovation Centre at Airfield Business Park in November 2012, are expanding to meet the demand created by their expansion into the town.

Run by husband and wife team Carl and Clare Elsby, the company is now taking on an additional three staff in a variety of roles to cope with the increase in business. Will Smart of WS Chartered Accounts has also joined as a partner in the firm and will be supporting Clare and Carl with the Market Harborough office.

We had been looking to open premises in Market Harborough for several years but couldn’t find the right site,” explains Clare, who is based at the Harborough office. “It is such a vibrant and attractive town. We looked at places like Stamford and Uppingham, but felt that Harborough was the ideal location – a great place to do business and also to work. When the offices at the Innovation Centre came up, it seemed the perfect opportunity to move. ”

With a head office in Sywell in Northamptonshire, Elsby & Co already had clients from the Harborough region on their books, but since the move, they now work with around 30 businesses from the town. They also run a monthly networking event in conjunction with Brian Wrigley of MP Growth, which takes place at Timo restaurant on the second Wednesday of each month.

David Wheway of Christians shoe shop on Abbey Street is just one of Elsby and Co’s satisfied customers who has experienced significant growth in the business since working with the company. “The staff at Elsby & Co emanate positivity and optimism,” he comments. “We were very well looked after when relocating to larger premises on Abbey Street. There were many complex factors to take into account, such as setting up the property acquisition in relation to the retail business, and Elsby & Co guided throughout the whole process.”

Elsby & Co is also celebrating 20 years in business this year. Specialising in working with small businesses and start-ups, Clare attributes the company’s success to the range of business services that they offer. She explains “It’s not enough for an accountant to just crunch the numbers anymore; so we aim to offer proactive advice which helps our clients to grow their businesses and ensure that they are operating as profitably as possible.”

The services that Elsby & Co offer include  quarterly consultancy sessions to assess business performance and identify areas for improvement, networking events and workshops as well as the more traditional services such as preparing accounts, tax advice, VAT returns and general business support.
