New Manchester firm celebrates 60th client

FLEDGLING online accountancy firm My Accountancy Place has celebrated its 60th client.

The Manchester-based small business firm, which is specialising in digital industries, has accumulated 61 clients in its first eight months of operation.

The client growth has seen the firm recruit three additional staff, including ACCA-qualified Martyn Raftery, who previously managed 200 clients at The Accountancy People.

Clients include creative agency Project Simply, and video and motion graphics agency doodledoMOTION.

Founder Paul Barnes (pictured) said: “The last six months have been a whirlwind. The number of enquiries has been extremely encouraging and it seems we have struck a chord with busy professionals that need an easy, low maintenance approach to finance, but who at the same time wish to retain complete control, with easy access to their figures.

“We are delighted to have appointed Martyn as operations manager. His skills and expertise will be integral for driving innovation and adding real value to our clients.”

Barnes appeared in Accountancy Age’s 2014 ’35 under 35′ list.
