Azets, the UK Top 10 accountancy firm, has announced plans to invest in new offices in Hexham to support increased local demand for its services.
The firm, which provides specialist accounting and business advisory services to growing and ambitious SMEs, is moving to refurbished offices at 16 Gilesgate this week.
The Gilesgate office will allow the team to work together collaboratively and offers a modern and dynamic working environment for both clients and staff.
The move supports the firm’s drive to expand its client base across Hexham and the Tyne Valley and will strengthen its specialist focus on the agricultural markets.
As well as expanding the firm’s local office space, Azets has increased the range of services available to clients in the Hexham area with the addition of Wealth Management. Azets Wealth Management advises clients on their financial goals including retirement planning, investment planning, tax planning, business protection, estate and protection planning and employee benefits. Mike Hartness, Financial Planner will be the local point of contact for wealth management services in Hexham and will work alongside the team of highly experienced, independent Financial Planners.
Beverley Affleck, Partner at Azets said:
“Our Hexham office has a long and proud tradition of providing clients, businesses and families across Northumberland with specialist accounting and business advisory services and we are very much looking forward to continuing that tradition as well as offering new services in Gilesgate.
She added: “There has never been a better time to consider joining Azets as we plan for further growth and accelerate the next phase of development. We are actively looking to add talented people to our teams across the North East at all levels. It is a great time to join a growing firm with ambitious plans.”
