Yorkshire accountancy firm Garbutt + Elliott have expanded its York office into new 13,600 sq ft premises.
This follows a record year, which has seen 45 new starters, including one new Partner, join the now 156-strong practice.
The move sees the York office space increase by over 15 per cent. Additionally, their Leeds office is also in the process of moving and upgrading their space.
The relocation allows for the firm to continue its headcount growth across its tax, accounting, audit, wealth management, payroll and corporate finance teams, whilst providing its staff and clients with the best possible surroundings from where to work and meet.
During its last financial year, Garbutt + Elliott saw its turnover increase by 19 per cent to £7m and this trend has continued in the new financial year. This was driven by a series of significant new business wins including Shepherd’s Purse, Age UK Leeds, TEV, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, and food manufacturer, Heck Food.
Garbutt + Elliott managing partner Russell Turner said: “We have enjoyed significant growth in the past year and with so many new people joining our team, we’ve outgrown our current home in York. The redevelopment work carried out in the new office space has transformed it into an impressive, exciting and functional working environment.
“The space created is open and collaborative, allowing for a more efficient and friendly work environment, whilst reflecting Garbutt + Elliott’s focus on delivering excellent service. It marks a huge milestone for the company, its employees and customers who will all benefit from the opportunities this expansion presents.”
Commercial property lawyer, Jonathan Moore, of Lupton Fawcett advised on the lease. The team’s hard work, patience and perseverance was very much in line with the ethos of Garbutt + Elliott, who pride themselves on working with excellent people, both in their own team and externally.
