Avanti reaches landmark anniversary
8/01/2020 - Avanti Group
The end of 2019 saw The Avanti Group (UK) Ltd reach 20 years of trading, a landmark that MD Victoria Sharp is understandably rather proud of.
These last two decades have seen the landscape for business owners change dramatically; 1999 news articles predicted the rise of ‘net-friendly’ computers, and in 2020 cloud-based systems have become the norm; An evolution that last year saw HMRC implement one of the biggest shake-ups to the tax system – the introduction of making Tax Digital for VAT registered businesses.
In 1999 platforms such as Facebook, Xero, Paypal and Twitter were far from the household names they are today but experts predicted that online business would grow tenfold in just 5 years. Now, these companies have become established tools that help business owners to process payments and market products and services to clients globally. Alongside these developments, the high street has also changed dramatically and Avanti has evolved as a company to utilise these tools and develop to meet the growing and changing needs of their clients.
“Steve and Jan, (my fellow Avanti Directors) and I are proud to be able to reach this massive milestone in our successful trading history”, comments Victoria, “We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in supporting The Avanti Group (UK) Ltd reaching 20 years of success. Success that has only been possible because of the support of our clients, who rely on our excellent services, which is delivered by an incredible team at Avanti, who go that extra mile to make sure our clients are taken care of”.
“We can reflect on our 20 years history; learning from mistakes and building a bigger and better business based on clients feedback”, Victoria continues, “and we can look at improvements in processes to become more efficient, to meet changes in legalisation and ensuring we are at the forefront of technology in our industry. We can reflect and be proud of our successes from being nominated AAT Professional Member, Future50 Member, Gold Xero Certification, together with testimonials and referrals from clients that are always appreciated and far reach any advertising tool.
We have always kept our core business from bookkeeping, payroll, accountancy and taxation at the heart of what we do – but over the last 20 years we have complimented these services by supporting local businesses with our Avanti Networking events and launching our Franchise opportunity – allowing the Avanti services to be shared throughout the UK, providing clients a ‘local’ service and accountants with support in running their own business to the high standard Avanti has maintained throughout.
We are proud that the company goes from strength to strength each year, with exciting projects on the horizon….watch this space!”
The way Avanti do business has certainly changed, but one thing will always remain, their ethos to be modern accountants with traditional values, supporting clients to help move them and their business forward.
There is little time for celebration though as Victoria and the team are aiming to file all clients’ tax returns online.on time. no fine for the 20th consecutive year as the 31st January deadline approaches.
