NBV’s Mercury House is a fantastic award-winning serviced office space, which carries into the 21st Century the charm and character from its days as part of Shipstones Brewery. It now houses many start-up businesses looking for affordable, high quality rented and virtual office space.
One such company, Sigma Accounting Solutions Ltd, started in a small office at Mercury House in 2003 with just company director Wendy Phillips running the business. Sigma Accounting Solutions Ltd is a firm of registered auditors and chartered certified accountants dealing with all aspects of general practice including completion of personal tax returns, preparation of accounts for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies, and much more.
Wendy adds: “I believe that the environment of Mercury House gives businesses the professionalism they want to portray in the early stages. The support of the Mercury House staff was also very helpful.”
‘It was fundamental to the growth of my company’
Within just two years Wendy’s company expanded and she was able to move into other rented premises. Although leaving Mercury House, Wendy decided to keep the link with NBV and continue with a Virtual Office package. Wendy adds: “I decided to keep the link with NBV in order to maintain our good working relationship, to make use of the facilities, the expertise of the staff and the networking events, to help grow my business even more.”
A virtual office package with NBV not only gives you a business address and telephony support, but you can also access networking events and meeting rooms at discounted rates, which is ideal for any new or established companies who need to meet and present to clients in a professional environment.
13 years with NBV and going strong!
NBV are thrilled to see that Sigma Accounting Solutions Ltd has grown in size over the years, and their achievements show how one small start-up company can thrive with the right kind of support. They now have the ACCA Quality Seal, along with a very high success rate of defending clients with HM Revenue & Customs inspections and investigations. Not only that – Wendy is also 70% shareholder in another accountancy firm!
Wendy adds: “The networking opportunities created by being based at Mercury House were invaluable in the early stages of growing my company. Being around other new businesses who were going through similar experiences and being able to share ideas was great.”
We asked Wendy what advice she would give to someone considering tenancy at NBV, “I would recommend anybody who is starting a business and considering an office or virtual tenancy to look at Mercury House and NBV as a possible solution. The facilities are great and the staff have been so helpful over the years.”
NBV would like to wish Wendy and the future of Sigma Accounting Solutions Ltd continuing success in the future and here’s to another 13 years with NBV!
