Accountancy firm expands from garage to business park

An accountancy firm has moved operations to the business innovation centre in Binley, part of the University of Warwick Science Park.

James Fox, founder of JDF Accountancy Services was running the company from his garage, now the firm is looking to expand its team and its space and moved into the business park in July last year.

Fox was introduced him to the Ignite incubation programme, which offers young businesses low-cost, flexible office space as well as access to specialist support.

He said: “Moving to the Business Innovation Centre was one of the best business decisions I ever made. While growth was strong before the move, I was always having to visit clients rather than them coming to me as I was still working out of my garage. It looked like a great space when I first visited, and when I was introduced to the Ignite programme, it made financial sense too, so the move was a no-brainer.

“Our incubation office is perfect for our team of three, and if we grow like expected, I’d love to expand the team to five and potentially take on more space within the Business Innovation Centre. It’s been amazing to have such an inviting place to bring clients, and the team have been so welcoming and supportive.”

Ignite manager Dirk Schaefer, said: “The Ignite incubation programme is perfect for a business like JDF Accountancy Services which is at an early stage of growth. The programme offers so much flexibility and means that James can grow his company within the Business Innovation Centre without having to look for new premises and can tap support for his business when they need it.

“We’re really pleased JDF Accountancy Services has taken advantage of this and is confident of even further growth into the future.”
