By A P Robinson & Co | Posted: 28 Feb 2019
Grimsby-based chartered accountants A P Robinson & Co are celebrating 25 years in business.
Founded in 1994 by Andrew Robinson, the accountancy firm has grown in size from just one man to a team of 4 directors and 25 staff, with clients across Lincolnshire.
Specialising in a range of services for both individuals and businesses, A P Robinson & Co offers everything from help with business start ups, to business advice for owner managed businesses and high growth companies. Its services also include succession and exit planning, advice on inheritance tax and capital gains tax and much more. In addition its dedicated payroll bureau, PayrollHub offers a full payroll service for several hundred clients.
Commenting on the milestone, Andrew Robinson, Managing Partner at A P Robinson & Co, said: “We are very proud of our long and continuous service to the people and businesses of Lincolnshire and we would like to thank them for all their support over the years. Looking to the future, our ongoing investment in our people and leading edge technology means that we can offer our clients, existing and new, a wide range of accounting services and expert business advice."
“Today we work for clients ranging from individuals and small businesses to multi-million pound companies. Most of our business comes directly from private and professional referrals. We like to think that tells you a great deal about the quality of our service and the fact that because we are independent we can be much more flexible and more personable than the big national players.”
Emma Brook, who has been a part of the team for over 20 years, attributes the success of the firm to ‘recognising opportunities, setting goals and taking action’.
Emma joined the business in 1997 as a trainee, before becoming a Partner in 2014 and focuses on managing the practice which brings in a multitude of skills including Human Resources, IT and mentoring. In more recent times, Sarah Bainbridge and Kate Brown joined as partners.
Andrew Robinson, founder of the firm, commented: “A great deal has changed over the 25 years since I started out as a sole practitioner, but one thing that remains the same is A P Robinson & Co’s approach to doing business. Throughout we have remained consistent in delivering a comprehensive, skilled, friendly and personal service underpinned by a wonderful team of loyal and devoted professionals. I’m very proud to say that the care and attention that we devoted to clients from day one remains at the heart of A P Robinson & Co’s approach to client relationships today.”
“In 2019 and beyond we will continue to provide the wealth and quality of services our clients have come to expect and we look forward to collaborating with many more clients, both new and existing.”
