BK Plus announces new service offering
One of the newest and fastest growing accountancy firms in the West Midlands has announced a new service offering, which will support businesses with their banking, financing and restructuring needs.
David Baldwin and Shaun Knight launched BK Plus Limited only four months ago – and the team is already 45 strong.
They are now adding to the services on offer for their growing client base and other businesses after announcing their first acquisition after only three months.
BK Plus has appointed Kim Richards, a licenced insolvency practitioner with nearly 20 years’ experience in the sector, to build and develop a banking and restructuring team.
Kim said: “It is great to be back working with David and Shaun, they have an amazing team around them and I’m looking forward to meeting up with existing contacts and making new ones too.
“As financial support in response to COVID is slowly withdrawn, we want to give guidance and support to businesses and owner managers to help them proactively navigate the road to recovery.
“The earlier a business seeks professional advice in relation to its financial circumstances from a qualified, experienced person, the more options there are likely to be available to overcome any problems.”
Shaun Knight, co-founder of BK Plus, said the appointment will allow the firm to support new and existing clients, as well as the wider business community.
He said: “Kim is very well known and respected in the business and legal community across the region and has vast experience in her field. We are delighted to welcome her to the firm.
“She understands the difficulties and financial strain that business owners can face and the impact that this can have on a company.
“Kim brings an informed perspective to these challenges looking at viable solutions for recovery.
“This is another exciting development for BK Plus, coming on the back of a very successful first few months and we expect to see this service line expand in the near future.”
The appointment comes after BK Plus acquired Chapman Nash accountancy in Barford, Warwick, as it expands its services north and south of Birmingham.
BK Plus, which is headquartered at Walsall Business Park, was launched to support SMEs, owner-managed businesses, and larger corporates.
It already provides a wide range of business advisory services such as accounts, audit, taxation, bookkeeping and payroll, through to corporate finance and other specialist advice.
The venture led by Shaun Knight and David Baldwin comes off the back of their success at Baldwins – now known as Azets – where they helped to transform the business to become a top 10 accountancy firm with more than 95 offices nationwide.
