Award-winning accountants open regional office in York
360 Chartered Accountants has opened a new office in York City Centre.
The award-winning firm has a developing portfolio of clients in and around York and says now is the perfect time to have a base in the city.
Andy Steele, Director of 360 Chartered Accountants, said:
“We are really excited about opening our office right in the centre of York. It’s always been in our business plan to expand outside of Hull and East Yorkshire and as our client portfolio here in York has grown, we have seized the opportunity – and can’t wait to welcome both our current clients and future clients to Blake House on Blake Street.
“We chose this location because it is right in the heart of the city. There is a fantastic and continually growing business economy here and we know that our services are a perfect fit for so many business owners who have been hit hard over the last couple of years. We worked throughout the pandemic, offering advice and support to anyone who needed it, clients and non-clients. We guided them through the various government grant systems and helped our clients claim nearly £10 million in furlough payments across all sectors. There’s also been some great innovation and we have helped businesses adapt to the changing climate. We understand what people have been through and are still going through and we can’t wait to start sharing our knowledge and expertise with even more businesses across York.”
360 Chartered Accountants couldn’t be more different to the image of a typical, ‘boring’ accountancy firm. Their success lies in a willingness to remain agile as a practice in an ever-changing financial and business climate. They are 21 st century accountants embracing modern technology to give their clients every advantage. Innovative and forward thinking, they have invested in IT and modern technology to simplify and speed up accountancy processes, so that clients can view real-time accounts in a secure cloud environment at any time of the day or night, which in turn allows them to make better, more informed decisions based on up-to-the minute figures. It also means the team is able to work from home if necessary, with no disruption to clients, which has been invaluable over the last 2 years.
Jono Stead, 360’s Corporate Portfolio Manager, will be managing the York operation. He said:
“It’s such an exciting time for 360 right now. Our continued growth is testament to the commitment we show to our clients. I am really looking forward to continuing to work with our current clients in York as well as getting to know many more business owners over the coming months.”
360, which also incorporates its own payroll bureau, 5Four Payroll, provides a full range of accountancy services for businesses of all sizes, from startups to large corporate clients. These include accounts, tax and bookkeeping services, support and advice on business growth, grant claims and raising finances, advising on exit strategies – and everything else in between.
