Yorkshire accountancy and business advice firm Garbutt + Elliott is putting its expertise in the palm of people’s hands with the launch of an exclusive new accountancy mobile app.
The app was officially unveiled at the firm’s Autumn Statement seminar at the end of November 2016. Since then, 180 people have downloaded the app and are using it to manage their own day-to-day accounting matters.
The app is available on both Android and iOS platforms, and allows users to keep track of key financial dates, stay up to date with changes to legislation and other financial news, manage expenses including mileage and also access cloud-based accounting and bookkeeping software, Xero.
Commenting on the app, Garbutt + Elliott partner, Simon Palmer, said: “At Garbutt + Elliott, we are always looking for new ways that we can help our clients to operate more efficiently. The app is a simple yet incredibly useful tool that puts our customers in control of their own accounting, giving them access to our expertise but also allowing them to manage their expenses and keep up to date with industry news.
“We consider ourselves to be not just accountants, but business advisors who customers can rely on to come up with great ideas that can help them to increase profits, and the app is a perfect example of this principle.”
Working predominantly with Yorkshire and North East-based owner managed businesses, Garbutt + Elliott operates across a diverse range of sectors including property and construction, manufacturing, food and drink, charities and digital media and creative arts.
Garbutt + Elliott was established in York over 150 years ago. Today, the firm employs 120 people including eight partners.
