Accountancy firm to expand Thirsk office

Accountancy firm Hentons is gearing up for expansion in North Yorkshire following the completion of an office refurbishment in Thirsk.

Hentons will create four new jobs as the firm grows.  Penny Sanderson, a specialist manager with expertise in dealing with farming and landed estate clients, has been appointed to lead operations at the Thirsk office.

Sanderson is from a farming background, and her husband is a farm manager, giving her a full understanding of the challenges that farmers face. She has over 25 years of experience in the agriculture sector.

Ian Wallace, a consultant at Hentons, said: “By increasing our presence in North Yorkshire and expanding the team further, we are providing a much-needed service designed to meet the complex business needs of the surrounding farming community.

“We provide invaluable support from teams of specialists who understand what is required. For many rural business operators, the move to digital taxation and real-time reporting could prove to be a major headache, but we believe that with Hentons guiding them through it, this also presents a great opportunity for farmers to run their businesses more profitably and efficiently with the increased availability of management information .”

Hentons has recently made significant investments in new technology and talent to expand the range of services it provides for companies. A recent investment of £150,000 in digital infrastructure will provide clients with a world-class digital accounting service.
