The two worked previously as sole traders before choosing to combine their individual AIMS practices and incorporate while remaining part of the AIMS Accountants for Business network in 2010. Being part of the AIMS network, which comprises over 240 accountants across the UK, gives them access to shared resources that enable them to offer the benefits of a local presence to businesses in the area, backed by national support.
Mike’s financial management skills and Jessica’s management accounting focus enable them to service clients across a broad range of sectors, while traditional accountancy needs and specific business requirements can be met by both. Mike also operates from an office in Stratford-Upon-Avon, but is now choosing to focus more on their business in Horsham and spend less time in Stratford.
“Our clients find our location here in City Business Centre convenient”, says Jessica, about why they have chosen to be based at Needspace? for seven years.
“The location is close to the town centre so it’s within walking distance and in fact, with our office being one of those facing onto Brighton Road, we do get walk-in enquiries. But we’re also frequently recommended via word of mouth, and so we need to cover a wider base too. It’s nice for clients to visit here without having to drive right into the town – and for Mike and I to easily travel from when we need to go out to see clients locally.”
