Accountants move premises

An ambitious Yorkshire accountancy firm has moved to new offices with a designer twist to accommodate its expanding team and improve its client experience.

Wintersgill Associates took over its new premises this week at the prestigious address on Brook Street in Ilkley. The two-floor office displays faux brickwork, striking artwork and statement furniture thanks to its design by local interiors specialists, Sturman and Wood, who recently refurbished the new Ilkley Cinema.

The nine-strong Wintersgill Associates team, which is in its 10th anniversary year, is also celebrating a triple nomination at this month’s Ilkley business Awards, including Best Professional Services Business of the Year.

Paul Wintersgill, managing director of Wintersgill Associates, explains: “With our growing team and our new brand offering, the time was right to move to bigger premises which would better suit the business.

“The new office is dynamic and interesting to reflect our creative edge. There are breakout areas for relaxing too with table football and comfortable seating.

“Our main objective is to create a welcoming place for our clients to enhance their experience of working with us and where we can really get to know them. We’re more than just accountants, we’re forward thinking business advisors and now our surroundings echo that.”

The contemporary design, which includes a meeting room with views of the moors, uses natural light and motivational wall art to complete the look.

Paul added: “We’ve done a lot of work to formalise who we are as a company. We’ve always delivered much more than pure accountancy services, climbing inside a business rather than providing figures from arm’s length, and it was time to officially incorporate that into our brand identity. Having an office which shows our personality and is designed specifically around the services we offer is the best way to share this with our clients.”
