We’re pleased to announce that here at Whyfield we’re celebrating a significant milestone as we head into our fifth year of trading. Throughout this period, we’ve been striving to create something unique in the accountancy industry … a firm that puts clients first and a firm where those clients are more than just a number.
The accountancy industry is overflowing with traditional firms, many of which were set up during the last century (or even earlier in some cases). This brings with it a slightly stuffy, ‘set in their way’ attitude towards the industry and their clients. Whyfield was set up as the antidote to that way of thinking. Our attitude towards the industry is very different and at the heart of that are our clients.
Today’s modern way of thinking in the accountancy industry is for clients to be able to access valuable financial support ‘when’ and ‘wherever’ they need it and if that means on a smartphone while clients are on the go, then that’s fine as well. If anything the emergence of Whyfield coincides with the decline of analogue accounting and the arrival of a modern digital approach. It’s how our clients end up paying less in fees for much more of a service.
However modern our approach is the actual offer remains very similar covering general accountancy services, bookkeeping, payroll, VAT, year-end accounting, HMRC, business set up and corporate growth advice. Today the Whyfield team has grown to (number) members of staff and we operate from our wonderful, bright and modern space at Threemilestone just outside Truro. Who knows how big the team will be by the time we head into our tenth year.
Commenting on the anniversary, Whyfield Managing Director, Laura Whyte said: “We started Whyfield because we realized that the accountancy industry needed to reinvent itself. It needed a completely fresh approach and we knew that could be achieved if we put our clients ‘first and foremost’ rather than obsessing about ‘billable hours’. It’s also the reason why we started our ‘more than just a number’ campaign which has proved hugely successful since we launched it in early 2018.’
