Following the merger of Mark Carr & Co with Streets Chartered Accountants last year, the team, based in Brighton, has experienced increased demand for its services with significant growth in the number of clients it looks after.
On the back of business expansion, the firm has relocated its Brighton & Hove office to a more contemporary office in the city‘s central business district, close to the Lanes and Churchill Square Shopping Mall. The office, aptly named Century House, provides a 21st century setting that ensures the firm provides its staff with a progressive and modern working environment as well as an attractive setting for client meetings.
Commenting on what he attributes the success of the firm to, Mark Carr, Director, said:
“Having established a good reputation for looking after clients in the entertainment sector and creative industries generally, we have benefited greatly from new client referrals from existing clients who value and like the personal and professional service we offer. A good understanding of their needs and the sector they work in has proved a real winner. We have also found that our new location and our reputation locally has given rise to an increase in new clients from other key sectors of the Brighton business community, including those engaged in gaming and technology.”
When asked what the future holds for Streets Mark Carr, Mark said:
“There is a true sense of vibrancy and energy within our team, the new office has certainly added to the buzz. Over the next few years we are excited about the real opportunity we have to build a significant and successful accountancy and business advisory practice in Brighton. Whilst we look after many clients who live or work locally, we also expect to see an increase in high profile clients that are more London centric and even from overseas that are looking for a specialist firm like ours.
“It is important though that we continue to grow our team to support such growth. In line with this, we were delighted to announce the appointment of Tom Mills, who joined us as a Director just over a year ago, with further appointments bound to follow.
“As part of the Streets Media Group, the dedicated media and entertainment arm of top 40 UK accountancy practice Streets Chartered Accountants, we and our clients can and do benefit from a host of additional services and advice, including international tax advice, financial advice and business advisory work.”
