Accountancy firm opens new Northants office

Lincoln-headquartered accountancy firm Streets has opened a new office in Northamptonshire.

The firm has moved into the Enterprise Centre East Northants (ECEN) complex. The office will be led by tax partners Luke Prout and Jennie Brown.

Prout said: “We have been keen to open a Northamptonshire office for some time. The challenge is being able to find something that is both ideally located and that provides a contemporary and progressive workspace. The ECEN is ideally situated giving easy access and connectivity to clients located in Northampton and Kettering as well as the wider county of Northamptonshire.”

Brown, who joined Streets as a tax partner at the beginning of the year, said: “The county is close to my heart, having been born in Kettering and now living in Northampton, it is great to back on home ground.

“Working with Luke I am looking forward to being able to support local businesses and individuals, providing proactive corporate and personal tax advice and planning.

“Certainly the coming months and perhaps years ahead see a perfect storm brewing for tax, starting with the Chancellor’s Budget in the Autumn, where it would be naive not to expect tax increases. Being up to speed with changes and their impact will be key, along with being able to advise businesses and private clients locally, I am looking forward to hopefully being the person people turn to.”

The new office for Streets in Northamptonshire now means the mid-tier and multi-regional firm has a total of 16 offices.
