As Christmas approaches and 2017 draws to a close, here at CHW Bolton Accountants we have been reflecting on the past twelve months.
2017 saw Bolton’s biggest accountancy practice, Cowgill Holloway LLP set up a new firm with Bolton’s leading small business accountant, Warings, to form CHW Small Business Accounting.
Our straight-talking and honest team were excited and enthusiastic about this venture. Our working environment was refurbished and updated and we were ready to go. Since then CHW have gone from strength to strength with the support of our amazing clients, both old and new, and our team continues to grow (even more so now that we have started on the mince pies).
We have been very proud and privileged to advise a collection of great, local businesses across various sectors and of different sizes and we have been delighted to welcome many new clients in 2017.
As our clients will testify, at CHW we provide everything a business requires – from start ups to growing businesses, accounts, tax, outsourcing, bookkeeping – we do it all, and we are looking forward to helping all our clients, continue to grow and prosper.
Our main aim here is a happy client and our kettle is always on – you might even get a mince pie at this time of year!
So, from all the team here at CHW Small Business Accountants, we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we hope you are as excited about 2018 as we are.
