DOUBLE-DIGIT GROWTH has been achieved at Top 50 firm haysmacintyre.
The London-based practice grew revenues by 10.3% for the y/e 31 March 2016, to £23.5m.
Partner numbers ticked up to 29 from 27 during the financial year, while its staff numbers have leapt 26% to 231. The expansion has been, in part, due to the firm’s move to open plan space in Holborn in 2013.
“Having settled into our open plan offices in Holborn we have been able to use the move as a catalyst for increased growth – both in terms of clients and headcount,” said Ian Cliffe, managing partner.
“As client needs evolve, so too does the need for us to adapt and tailor our approach accordingly. These strong organic growth and turnover figures reflect our focus on both maintaining and increasing levels of client service by concentrating and reorganising our teams to work along specific sector lines.”
Cliffe previously told Accountancy Age that the office move was “revolutionary”.
Haysmacintyre provides services mainly across to key areas: entrepreneurs and OMBs; and charities/not-for-profit. It sits at 32 in the Accountancy Age Top 50+50.
In 2014 it won Mid-Tier Firm of the Year at the British Accountancy Awards.
