New Year, Enhanced Brand for Carpenter Box
Sussex-based chartered accountants, tax and business advisers, Carpenter Box has started 2017 with a subtle tweak to its identity – incorporating its membership of the MHA Association into its trading name.
The firm, now known as MHA Carpenter Box, was a founding member of the Association In 2010, when it was established by the best independent regional UK accountancy firms to share knowledge and resources.
Practice Director Chris Coopey commented: “Although it’s a small change, introducing MHA into our name demonstrates that whilst we remain a sizeable independent firm, we also have a considerable national resource at our finger tips to help clients get the best from their businesses, whatever opportunity or challenge comes their way.”
The new brand also reflects the firm’s expertise as tax and business advisers rather than just a traditional accountancy practice. The firm’s full-service offering together with its focus on sector specialisms helps to explain why MHA Carpenter Box has grown to a headcount of over 140, as does the outstanding success of its Gatwick office, which has tripled in size since first opening in June 2015.
MHA’s eight member firms have offices in 50 locations across England, Scotland and Wales. Its combined turnover puts the Association in the country’s top 15 UK accountancy groupings enabling MHA Carpenter Box to provide support to clients of every size and in every sector.
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
