This year has seen Tom (Craddock) complete his Association of Accounting Technician (AAT) exams, which he has been working towards for 3 years since joining our team in 2012. This gives Tom a recognised and respected qualification to back up his practical experience. In 2016 he will be starting work towards his Association of Chartered Certified Accountants exams.
Xero Silver Partner accreditation
During 2015 we have been awarded Silver Partner status with online accounting software provider Xero. As part of this 5 members of our team (Steve, Martin, Chris, Nicci & Tom) have studied for and been awarded Xero Certified Advisor status. We already have over 20 businesses using Xero.
Alongside our increased online work through Xero, we have invested in improved internet connectivity and are now “Superfast”, to ensure that we can upload and download information effectively and efficiently.
This year has seen us recruit 2 apprentices as part of our development as a business. In September we welcomed Beth (Parkin) and in November we were joined by Joe (Sykes). – Both are studying towards their AAT exams on day release at York College, alongside working in our office 4 days a week.
We have been joined by Ilianna on reception during 2015.
We have been sad to wave farewell this year to:
– Beena who has decided not to return following the birth of her second child
– Sarah who was providing maternity cover for Beena who decided to move to Lancashire to be with her boyfriend
Happy new year from all the team at Morrell Middleton and we look forward to working with you in 2016.
