Home-grown accountancy firm moves into first permanent office
An accounting firm which began on the owner’s kitchen table is celebrating new growth after moving into its first permanent premises.
Coventry-based Energise Accountancy Solutions was founded by Sharan Kalsi in May 2020 following 17 years working as an accountant at FTSE 100 companies, including international technology company IBM and energy company E.ON.
The business provides bookkeeping, cashflow management and accounting services to small and medium sized businesses across Coventry and Warwickshire and moved into its first office premises at Enterprise House in Coventry in a deal negotiated by Holt Commercial.
The business also provides interim or outsourced finance director services with a specialism in private equity backed organisations, with clients based in London, Birmingham, Coventry and Warwickshire.
The idea for the company began on Kalsi’s kitchen table after she spotted a gap in the accounting market targeting small and medium sized organisations, which needed the same support and expertise without the high expense of an in-house team.
The business initially operated on a hybrid basis using hot desks at a local co-working space, but began looking for a permanent in-person base for the business in September 2022.
Its office at Enterprise House gives the company both the space and flexibility it wanted to support business growth and the teamwork with SMEs across a range of industries including retail, biotech manufacturing and ecommerce.
Kalsi said: “We are delighted to have successfully moved into our first premises and are really thrilled about the potential of our new corporate office in helping to enhance our client services and grow Energise Accounting Services.
“Moving into the office has given us the flexibility to offer both in person and virtual consultations, with easy access in a great Coventry location which is convenient for both our clients and our team.
“The nicely renovated office is bright, airy and perfect for our needs, the space available gives us ample opportunity to build the business further, and Enterprise House is a great hub to work alongside likeminded businesses.”
Enterprise House is located on Foleshill Road and is owned by Coventry City Council.
Enterprise House offers well-appointed office space in a multi-tenanted building with manned onsite reception, and communal facilities such as conference and meeting room space together with kitchen areas and good on-site parking provision.
