Aston Shaw accountants recommends King's Lynn as a 'place with great potential'

It’s people who make progress actually happen. Glenn Savill, relationship manager at Chambers members Aston Shaw has firm views on the subject.

For a start, it’s a philosophy that sits comfortably with Aston Shaw’s ethos. As successful accountants they have at their core a belief that accountancy is not solely about the numbers.

They believe that it’s also about relationships and how a business provides a service. It’s about people.

With software more able than ever to calculate complex tax liabilities and ensure bookkeeping can be performed efficiently from virtually anywhere on the planet, the onus is on accountants to provide a proactive, advisory, relationship with clients.

Growing businesses need to retain existing, as well as find new, clients of course and part of Aston Shaw’s recent growth has seen them move into King’s Lynn by acquiring two accountancy practices in the area.

"We see King’s Lynn as a place of great potential, and an important place for us," says Glenn. "It has a great workforce. It’s home to a wide range of significant local brands and businesses; businesses in tune with the region’s future. These are organisations we look forward to working and growing with."

Inevitably growth of this nature meant implementing and embedding new systems, new software and new methods. Equally inevitably that level of change is met with enthusiasm in some quarters and resistance in others.

Glenn commented that, for example, some clients have become accustomed to traditional accounting services, something which is competely respected. Others are hungry for innovation.

"It’s a difficult balancing act but we feel we can deliver the best of both worlds," he said.

"We believe in our brand, our methods and our values but also recognise the need to respect what came before to ensure each client receives the service that’s right for them.

"Crucially, it is essential that the service remains a personable one; something that technology is unable to provide. Because it’s about people. And it’s people who make success happen."
