A North East accountancy firm has expanded to facilitate its current and future growth plans.
Lyons Watson Accountants, based at Business Central in Darlington, has taken on a larger office in the business centre to house new staff and build on their success so far.
Established in 2016, Lyons Watson Accountants provides financial management and business support services to small and medium sized companies throughout County Durham and Tees Valley.
And with further growth in mind, the expansion is highly significant for the business according to its owner, Nick Lyons.
“The new office is a big step forward for us,” said Nick, “it gives us the room we need to welcome a new member of staff and we’re excited to bring clients to our new office.
“We like to meet with our clients regularly to build close relationships. This enables us to provide a very personal service and advice that is specific to each client’s needs, so it’s great to be able to have the extra space in the office to host these meetings.”
Nick – who is originally from Darlington – has built up a lot of connections in the area having previously worked for well-established accountancy firms in the region, so it was important for him and his business to remain in Darlington.
He added: “I’ve always wanted to be based in Darlington so we were delighted to have the opportunity to grow within Business Central and expand our business further.
“It’s important to be based in a professional environment and it’s also important for our clients who regularly comment on the centre’s impressive facilities and how friendly Business Central’s staff are.
“And going forward, we’re already looking to recruit another trainee accountant next year.”
Business Central’s Centre Manager, Vanessa Wood, said: “Nick is a popular member of our vibrant business community and I’m delighted that Lyons Watson have decided to stay and grow with us.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how they progress as they continue to build a successful business.”
