Accountancy and business advisory firm MHA Moore and Smalley, which has an office in Blackpool, has achieved a third successive year of income growth, reaching a record turnover of £16.6m.

The firm, which has 300 staff across Lancashire, Cumbria and the East Midlands, has seen turnover rise from £15.5m in 2016/17, £14.1m in 2015/16 and £12.8m in 2014/15..

It credits effective recruitment, further growth in international and transactional work, and strong investment in its digital accounting technology as the drivers of its success.

The firm has recruited 62 new staff in the last 12-months.

It has also promoted three new partners and four new directors in that time.

Graham Gordon, managing partner, said: “We’re continually striving to make MHA Moore and Smalley a great employer in the regional business advisory sector.

"We want to be the firm of choice for the brightest talent around and our recruitment and retention strategy is just one of many factors in our impressive growth.

"We’ve also benefited from being part of MHA’s UK and international networks, resulting in further strong growth.”
