REVENUES HAVE GROWN 12% at North-west accountancy firm Hurst.
The firm’s April 2012 year-end revenues climbed to £4.4m. It opened a London office last year, and added 53 clients. It was also a finalist in Accountancy Age’s British Accountancy Awards 2011.
“Growing turnover by half a million in what is still a challenging market is a major achievement,” said Hurst managing partner Tim Potter.
“There are lots of opportunities for future growth and we’ll continue to focus on adapting conditions.”
The firm worked on a number of deals in 2011, including the £5m MBO of Vodat International, and the acquisition of Haytons by north-west coach company Selwyns.
