Yorkshire accountancy firm, BHP, has announced a record month after winning 10 new clients worth nearly £500,000 in total.

The client wins, which include prestigious companies from the timber and flooring markets as well as the professional services and charitable sectors, are a reflection of the firm’s recent national recognition for the quality of its audit work.

Joint Managing Partner, Lisa Leighton, said: “We have seen a solid increase in demand for our services across the year but significantly in this last month.

“While we’ve been up against national firms, new clients have fed back that BHP’s approach and ethos have shone through and we’re particularly pleased to note a couple of private equity backed companies highlighting our rigorous audit approach as a decisive factor.”

In November 2019, BHP scooped Audit Team of the Year at the British Accountancy Awards.

The award - run in partnership with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) - recognises BHP’s market-leading use of data analytics in audit.

Lisa Leighton explained: “We continue to push forward with initiatives to further add value in our audits and lead with technology.

“It’s important to us that we don’t grow for growth’s sake and we continue to devote time to building those relationships we’ve already got – this has always been fundamental at BHP."

With more than 300 staff, over the last 10 years BHP has increased turnover from £8m to over £22m.
