When John Froggett set up as a sole practitioner offering accountancy services in 1998, he wanted to offer a less formal, jargon free service which has proved to be a popular formula!
Over the last 20 years the business has grown from the dining room table to an office in the High Street, Royston and John still works with the first three clients who entrusted him with their business.
Organic expansion has meant that as the business has grown, John has been able to offer gainful employment to four other members of his family!
In the early stages, working from home involved negotiating space with his wife and five children so he’s experienced first hand the trials and tribulations of setting up and expanding a business.
The Accountancy Practice has recently acquired another accountancy business to incorporate and they are in the process of assimilating a bookkeeping business, headed by Steve Damallie. They are also providing work experience placements to bright young students, and next year it’s likely they’ll be expanding their team even further.
John is very excited about the future; ‘I get enormous pleasure watching my two boys David and Adam passing their exams in tax and accountancy, they’re really embracing the future with an energy and enthusiasm I hadn’t anticipated. We love the buzz of helping clients sort their tax affairs out, creating solutions which perhaps no one else has considered and really getting to know our clients and their businesses’.
