Accountants doubles in sizeÂ
AN ACCOUNTANCY firm has doubled in size after taking over an accountanct and bookkeeper in Lee-on-the-Solent.Â
SHMS Accountants, a firm of small business accountants in Park Gate that started in 1998, hasÂ acquired all accounting clients previously taken on by Alan Sanders, who has retired.Â
This has meant SHMS has more than doubled in size, going from 400 clients to more than 800 and taking on new staff in the process.Â Two new bookkeepers haveÂ been hired with other positionsÂ being advertised for.Â
AccountantsÂ director Stephen Humphreys said: '˜I'm excited aboutÂ acquiring new clients from Alan, because we can now increase our staff numbers and provide a betterÂ service to our current clients and the new ones.
'˜Increasing our staff numbers means we can give all our clients a dedicated managerÂ and ensure there is one point of contact.'Â
