Online accountancy firm, My Accountant Friend (MAF), has opened their latest office in Birmingham and recruited new Partner, Richard Ingledew, to head-up their new regional presence.
Based at Innovation Birmingham Campus, MAF is an online accountancy firm that provides accounts and tax advice to contractors, freelancers, small businesses and start-ups. Their approach is to build relationships with their clients to offer a personalised service. Their award winning online accounts platform is backed up by proving each client a dedicated accountant who they can talk to; their own “accountant friend”.
Founded in 2009, the company has achieved significant growth in the marketplace and now has eight offices throughout the UK. In addition to Birmingham, the firm has also opened offices in Watford and Belfast this year.
Iain Morrison, Founder and Managing Director at My Accountant Friend, said: “MAF has gone from strength to strength over the last 12 months. We have opened three new offices in Birmingham, Belfast and Watford with new opportunities coming up every month. Having Richard and his years of experience onboard in such an innovative and entrepreneurial city like Birmingham, is an extremely exciting time for us. We plan to eventually have a presence down the spine of the UK, in each main city. Our eyes are on Brighton next and we have a number of events lined up for the near future.”
Richard Ingledew, Partner at My Accountant Friend, said: “With over 15 years’ experience of the contractor accountancy marketplace, I am excited to join MAF and am looking forward to growing our presence in the Birmingham region and continuing to build on the successes the company has experienced over the last few years.”
