News: Sutton McGrath Hartley open new office in Rotherham town centre


Sutton McGrath Hartley, the growing firm of chartered accountants and tax advisers, has opened a new office in Rotherham town centre.

The firm, which spans South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire, has a core business of accountancy and taxation services, but also employs lawyers and financial advisers. It helps clients across all stages of their development, through business acquisitions, strategic planning, financial forecasting, accessing finance for business growth or developing a suitable exit strategy.

David Sutton, managing partner at Sutton McGrath Hartley (pictured, left), said: "For the past few years we had been developing our "full service" offering, so that our clients don't have to go out to multiple firms when they need professional advice on complex interrelated financial matters. The aim is to cut the risk of mistakes and oversight that arise when professionals from different firms don’t communicate effectively. This reduces our clients' costs whilst optimising their financial outcomes.


"For example, a business owner might traditionally have used one firm for accountancy & tax services, another for legal advice, and yet another for financial planning. The accountants might have been more involved on the business side of things, the financial planners with the owner's personal affairs, and the lawyers only on an ad hoc basis. The fact that they worked in different offices and had different agendas could result in duplicated time & fees and/or conflicting advice, either of which is bad for the client.

"We have circumvented this problem by employing all the professionals we need under one roof, thus ensuring a ‘joined up’ approach. We employ Chartered Accountants, Chartered Tax Advisers, Financial Planners, Lawyers, and Trust & Estate practitioners; our staff are therefore the most highly qualified and experienced professionals there are in these fields. Furthermore, they all work closely together & have possessions of all the facts, so we can guarantee that our clients receive best advice from all perspectives.

"Our Sheffield and Chesterfield offices are proof that this approach works, and we are now keen to provide the same level of service in Rotherham which has a vibrant business community which we need to play a bigger part in. As a firm we are now rivalling the larger independent firms in the region and having a physical presence in the main towns in the region is an essential part of our growth strategy."

The new Rotherham office is at 12 The Crofts, in the financial and professional services district around the Town Hall.

Last year, property agents, Burgess Commercial secured the successful disposal of the freehold of two stone-fronted office buildings, previously occupied by the chamber of commerce, known as 11 and 12 The Crofts. It was acquired by Davison Property Investments, a privately held, Sheffield-based investment group with a wide portfolio.

Kate Wilkinson, a partner in the Rotherham office (pictured, centre), said: "Opening a multi service office in Rotherham was the obvious next step for the firm. It allows us to be closer to our existing Rotherham based clients who will be able to tap into the full range of services on offer at Sutton McGrath Hartley but also to build on this and attract new business from the area.

"There aren't many accountancy practices in Rotherham of our size which offer a complete range of services like we do, so we are bringing added expertise as well as a first class personal service to the town."
