Retaining the strengths of its industrial past while pushing traditional business practices helps Birmingham to continue to thrive, according to Mark Eden, Director of Jerroms.
It is the fifth year that the leading audit, tax and accountancy firm has supported the Birmingham Post Business Awards and it is sponsoring this year’s Small Business of the Year category.
Small businesses represent an important part of Jerroms’ client base and the firm prides itself in “building business better”.
Its staff support firms in raising finance, business planning, cash flow management and strategic support to hep entrepreneurs realise their dreams.
“Birmingham still holds the same great qualities from its industrial past where it was at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution,” said Mr Eden.
“Today it continues to thrive because there is a real thirst for business and a determination to challenge the way business is traditionally done.
“Business owners and entrepreneurs have such enthusiasm for innovation and new ideas that there is no standing still in Birmingham – this is what makes it such an exciting place to be.
“This is the fifth year that we have supported the Birmingham Post Business Awards because we are passionate about supporting local businesses.
“The awards are a great way to show our appreciation and celebrate those who are significantly contributing to making Birmingham the great place that it is.
“The achievements of small businesses go a long way to mould and shape Birmingham’s economy and they continue to push the boundaries, despite having to comply with many of the same rules and regulations as larger companies – HR, Health and Safety, Financial, not to mention their own industry requirements.
“In order to do this, small business owners and entrepreneurs are incredibly multi-skilled and it is so important to acknowledge this.”
Jerroms also has many plans of its own for the future.
Mr Eden explained: “The addition of two further offices in Kings Heath and Bromsgrove to our offices in Solihull over the last two years has meant the Practice has doubled in size, and we will continue to grow in the vibrant, economic area of Birmingham. “
