Sutton McGrath Hartley open new office in Rotherham town centre
20th June 2016
As part of the firm's growth strategy, Sutton McGrath Hartley, the South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire firm of Chartered Accountants & Tax Advisers, have opened a new office at 12 The Crofts, in central Rotherham.
The firm's core business is accountancy and taxation services, but it also employs lawyers and financial advisers, so is perfectly positioned to advise more generally on the inevitable interaction of business interests with those of the individuals & their families, and thereby protect and enhance the wealth of their clients. David Sutton, Managing Partner at Sutton McGrath Hartley comments: -For the past few years we had been developing our 'full service' offering, so that our clients don't have to go out to multiple firms when they need professional advice on complex interrelated financial matters. The aim is to cut the risk of mistakes and oversight that arise when professionals from different firms don't communicate effectively. This reduces our clients' costs whilst optimising their financial outcomes. -For example, a business owner might traditionally have used one firm for accountancy & tax services, another for legal advice, and yet another for financial planning. The accountants might have been more involved on the business side of things, the financial planners with the owner's personal affairs, and the lawyers only on an ad hoc basis. The fact that they worked in different offices and had different agendas could result in duplicated time & fees and/or conflicting advice, either of which is bad for the client. -We have circumvented this problem by employing all the professionals we need under one roof, thus ensuring a 'joined up' approach. We employ Chartered Accountants, Chartered Tax Advisers, Financial Planners, Lawyers, and Trust & Estate practitioners; our staff are therefore the most highly qualified and experienced professionals there are in these fields. Furthermore, they all work closely together & have possessions of all the facts, so we can guarantee that our clients receive best advice from all perspectives. -Our Sheffield and Chesterfield offices are proof that this approach works, and we are now keen to provide the same level of service in Rotherham which has a vibrant business community which we need to play a bigger part in. As a firm we are now rivalling the larger independent firms in the region and having a physical presence in the main towns in the region is an essential part of our growth strategy.'' Kate Wilkinson, a partner in the Rotherham office adds: -Opening a multi service office in Rotherham was the obvious next step for the firm. It allows us to be closer to our existing Rotherham based clients who will be able to tap into the full range of services on offer at Sutton McGrath Hartley but also to build on this and attract new business from the area. -There aren't many accountancy practices in Rotherham of our size which offer a complete range of services like we do, so we are bringing added expertise as well as a first class personal service to the town. Sutton McGrath Hartley will be arranging an open evening for businesses and individuals located in Rotherham who wish to discuss any of their financial requirements in more detail in the coming weeks.
