20 Years At Balance!

Can’t believe that it’s been 20 years at the helm of Balance Accountants–but it’s true, .it was 1 November 1993 wen I acquired the business (then known as Rogers & Co) from Andrew Rogers in Holmfirth. The 20 years since then have seen some high points and some low points—but fortunately more high than low.

Where It All Began

The business today is pretty much unrecognisable from those early days. In 1993 we operated out of small offices on a side street in Holmfirth with only 1 full time accountancy staff member and around 90 clients. Now we have 17 staff, work out of prestigious offices on the main road into Holmfirth and have somewhere in the region of 500 clients. But don’t think that this all came easily. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into the development of the modern day Balance Accountants. Long days, late nights and weekend work were often the order of the day.

People have played an important part in the growth of the business and we must have employed over 200 people over the 20 years since we started—some good and some bad but the current team is probably the best that we Have ever had which gives me great confidence in the future of the business as we look forward to the next 20 years.

There are things that I would have done differently along the way but the decision to start out on the self employed path 20 years ago was definitely the right thing to do…………..
