“They’ve helped us restructure the financial aspect of the company and have really opened our eyes to things that we were doing but we weren’t taking advantage of.”
“On the auditing point of view, once they’ve come in, they’ve helped us restructure how we do our accountancy,” Donny says. “It’s benefited us, and it’s made the auditing process a lot quicker. It’s been able to get us our accounts online so much faster than we used to do it.”
Haines Watts has been alongside Applebridge since it was turning over £10m, it is now looking to try and achieve £70m. Jonathan says, “Haines Watts has grown with Applebridge and developed the structures, the efficiencies, the controls that come with having a large group of businesses.”
As Applebridge looks toward the future, the company has year-on-year growth in its sights. As part of this, Donny is looking to improve the companies that they currently have, improve the structure within those companies, and bring through apprentices along with other members of staff. "I feel that there is a bright future for Applebridge,” Donny adds.
