Ross Boyd Ltd Reveals Ambitious Plans for Growth at 5th Birthday Celebrations Accountancy firm will double staff numbers by 2017

Belfast-based accountancy firm, Ross Boyd Limited (RBL) announced ambitious plans for growth at its fifth birthday celebrations, with the help of rugby icon, Stephen Ferris.

The business’ owners revealed their vision for the future, which included conquering new client markets as well as doubling staff numbers in the next two years – taking the team from 11 to 20.

To mark the milestone, the firm partnered with Stephen Ferris to analyse the similarities between sporting and business performance, which demonstrated that success in either takes conditioning and preparation. Interviewed by renowned broadcast sports journalist, Graham Little, Stephen Ferris discussed his training regime that ensured he kept at the top of his game, and highlighted that businesses too need to adapt and shape themselves to ensure they stay competitive in the market place.

Ross Boyd, Director at RBL said: “The ERC has advised that Northern Ireland, and especially Belfast, is the best place in the UK to scale businesses to £1m – the future is looking positive for SMEs. We, ourselves are delighted to reach such an important milestone in our business’ life. In challenging climates it’s not always easy to survive let alone grow but we have done it and helped countless others do the same.”

Crediting its own success in these five years with market innovation and alternative ways of thinking, RBL has radically altered and modernised how small businesses interact with and utilise the expertise of their accountants.

By benchmarking best practice from around the globe, RBL developed a market leading proposition for the firm – a fully cloud-based operating model that allows it to service clients’ needs remotely.

This type of tactical play and forward-looking strategy mirrors the advice RBL also gives to its own clients when developing a business plan and shaping what differentiates them in their respective market places.

Ross Boyd continued: “The requirements of small businesses are unique, with owners often having to undertake a wide range of roles in difficult conditions. We are able to understand those pressures as we too are a small business with ambitious plans and so continue to provide tailored, authoritative advice to our clients to help them realise their business ambitions. We look forward to continuing to not only enjoy our own successes but those of our clients.”
