As a valued client of Avanti, we wanted to share with you some exciting news.
Jan and Steve who started the business over 20 years ago have grown, evolved and supported hundreds of business owners on their own business journey. Their ethos from day one was that we would be a family firm, and in 2003 when Victoria joined the team, it became a true family run practice. Many of you will be aware that Jan and Steve have continued to work remotely now for some years from the sunshine of North Cyprus, but the time has now come for Jan and Steve to finally take much deserved retirement. The team would like to thank them both for their support and wish them well.
The retirement of Jan and Steve has led to some exciting changes here at Head Office, and we would like to announce that we are merging with London based Maurice J Bushell & Co on 1st April 2020.
We would like to introduce you to Steve Foster who runs Maurice J Bushell & Co (MJB). Steve is a Chartered Accountant who has been in practice advising SME clients for over 25 years. He has a team of 9 full time staff including two qualified Certified accountants. We were very much attracted to their client service values and ethos that are complementary to our own.
What does this mean for you as an Avanti client?
In essence it is business as usual, but with additional services and support. Your terms of engagement including the staff who currently look after you will not change. It is vital, especially at the current time, for you to have continuity of service, and that is what will be ensured.
The Ipswich office, team and the family run ethos remain, with the addition of a London office and their resources.
