We are once again innovating and leading the way in which accounting firms are run and operated!
Not content with being a pioneer in cloud accounting as the first Xero Gold Partner in Cornwall, we have decided to change up the game again. According to Paul, “Bodmin and Cornwall are beautiful places to live and work, but unfortunately not a hotspot of accountancy talent. With Cornish Accounting growing 25% over the last year, this has made it harder to find the right people locally who share our passion for cloud accounting and client service excellence.”
As a result, we are changing things up a gear. We have expanded our team by employing 3 qualified accountants in the Philippines for certain tasks. This then frees up our Bodmin-based staff to focus on delivering great client service every single day, rather than the traditional accountants’ approach of only being there for clients at the end of the financial year. Going forward, our team in the Philippines will compliment and support our Cornish workforce which is also expanding.
COVID-19 has brought unprecedented disruption to the working lives of local Cornish people. It has forced us all to look at different ways of working and different ways to make money within our businesses to support our families.
Paul believes that the businesses who see the advantages and opportunities with the current set up are the ones which will come through this recession stronger. And Cornish Accounting are no different to our clients. The current working environment, brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, has focused our minds on the advantages of remote working. These same benefits can also be leveraged by offshoring.
Commenting, Ant Miller, director of Cornish Accounting said “Our team based in Manila just absorb and have a thirst for knowledge. Their temperament and ability to understand difficult concepts quickly is a major strength to our team. Having them onboard will allow us to grow again by 25% next year. Of course, we still believe in supporting the local economy, so are still recruiting locally for people who have a passion for growing businesses and excellent client service.”
