Huddersfield accountant firm expands with new commercial finance arm
Pierrepont Accountants has expanded the business by branching out into the commercial finance sector.
The firm in Holmfirth, near Huddersfield, has specialised in providing accounting, taxation and payroll services to small businesses, helping them to improve their profitability and grow.
This new business arm enables Pierrepont to offer a fully-rounded package of financial services, providing end-to-end support for clients.
Additional services will include support in areas like accessing commercial property finance, business loans and venture capital along with alternative finance options such as asset-based lending and peer-to-peer lending.
Jonathan Hill. Pierrepont director, a CIMA registered accountant, said: “We’ve always prided ourselves on offering a friendly, personalised service, which builds up a strong relationship of trust.
“Recently we’ve had a lot of clients who are ready to grow their business asking for advice on how to access the necessary finance. Others have needed help to overcome cashflow problems identified through our forecasting process.
“At a time when face-to-face contact is widely being replaced by automated services, we’ve found that many business owners are uncomfortable about sharing their sensitive financial information with numerous, often unfamiliar, organisations. In a nutshell, they prefer to talk to one trusted individual with a single central point of contact.
“So, we decided to respond by introducing this additional function into our business mix. This now enables us to accompany our customers along the whole of their journey and allows them to obtain all their financial support in one place. We have expert advisers in place with access to over 120 finance companies available to meet each customer’s individual commercial funding needs.”
