RfM+more, has built a network of seven branches in Lancashire and Cumbria and a partnership in the City of London in under two years, and is now offering owners and managers the expertise to follow suit and take their firm to the next level.

Its new RfM Business Growth Service has been designed so clients and non-clients can tap into a vast range of specialist skills to set their own business on the road to prosperity. Director Tony Backhouse (pictured) said: “Many clients want to grow their business and need external help in overcoming the issues they face.

“But often this help is not readily to hand or affordable.

“Often business owners and managers have some understanding of what is needed but, with all of the pressures they face, they are unable to make the changes, or some simply lack the skills required.

“As a result growth can become too difficult, it can have a number of false starts, or it simply takes too long – with wasted opportunities, costs and management attention.

“Initially RfM consultants will assist in producing growth action plans to set-out a new business model blueprint, an implementation roadmap, a high-level business case and available developmental funding​.”

Leading by example, RfM is the North West’s fast-growing accountancy group. It was only launched in January last year by the merger of two established companies with branches in Leyland, Barrow-in- Furness and Ulverston. In 18 months it has set up offices in Head Dyke Lane, Pilling, Lancaster, Morecambe, and Windermere.

Tony added: “We can help businesses improve their competitiveness and create new jobs in the local economy.”.
