We have started 2018 the way we finished 2017 – with even more qualified staff, unsurpassed growth, record-breaking turnover and our name going forward into yet another prestigious small business award.
We have just announced year-on-year growth of 18% and a turnover of £2 million. This has been achieved by us taking on a diverse range of new local and regional clients who value our support provided on such matters as workers’ pensions, auto enrolment, flat rate VAT changes, recent alterations to the dividend tax system and last November’s Budget.
Our success is also down to forging ever closer partnerships with such popular small business accounting software providers as Xero and QuickBooks.
In the latest ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) exam results all eight members of staff who studied for their qualifications passed.
ACCA is a globally recognised body and the qualifications are highly respected in the accountancy profession. Rachael Wilson and Rachel Sawbridge passed their final exams and are now fully qualified.
Buoyed by all this good news, we have entered into the 2018 Sentinel Business Awards after reaching the final three of the Small Business of the Year category in the 2017 West Midlands Finance Awards and being commended in the same category in the Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
A major reasons for this level of success has been our pro-active social media strategy and the creation of such advanced accounting solutions as its highly popular app. Also, our clients receive a high-class service because of the company’s strong administrative infrastructure managed by Jo Austin.
What a year we’re having already, with incredible growth, record turnover and a clean sweep across the board for everyone who took their ACCA exams. This can only be good news for all our customers and for the continued expansion of the business.
Last year will be remembered by everyone at Howards as the time when the company went from strength to strength – not just by doing so well in two prestigious business awards but also with many new members of staff joining that have taken us to record levels of personnel.
