Scottish taxation and accountancy practice, EQ Accountants LLP has grown almost 95% in just five years.

The firm, which has offices in Dundee, Forfar, Cupar and Glenrothes, is reporting an increase in turnover to £7.5M, compared to £3.8M in 2014.

During the same five year period, staff numbers have grown from 70 to 130.

While a proportion of the growth can be attributed to the acquisition of offices in Fife in 2016, the firm can boast organic growth of 20% over the last three years.

David Cameron, Managing Partner commented, “We have achieved this growth simply by doing valued work for our clients, and as a result, winning more business.

“We are specialists when it comes to helping clients achieve their business and personal goals and pride ourselves not only on dealing with the compliance side but excelling in complementary services which really add value. Whether helping owners pass the business down a generation or identifying a structure which will reap rewards for our clients, we have seen an increasing demand for these business advisory services as well as the exceptional tax expertise which EQ is known for.”

Firmly established as one of the country’s leading R&D tax credit experts, EQ has built on this success with a large number of tax advisory assignments demonstrating their skills in an ever more complex legislative environment.  This success has led EQ to rebrand their Taxpertise with the creation of several new specialist teams and a new tax only website.

David Morrison, Head of EQ Taxation added, “EQ’s reputation has always been for delivering insightful high-level tax advice that clients can count on, regardless of the subject matter. The level of demand for these services has led us to further strengthen our tax offering with specialist tax teams covering areas from employer solutions and private client tax, to transactions tax, research and development, property taxation and international tax.  It’s a very exciting time for the firm and we have a highly talented and qualified workforce that is ready to help you and your business with any tax problem.  It’s our job to remove your worries and to leave your tax affairs in the hands of the EQ Taxperts”.
