AWARD winning Purple Accounts has moved into new offices at Quay House, South Quay, Douglas.
An open day was held last Friday attended by customers and invited guests from the local business community.
Purple Accounts was launched five years ago.
Managing director David Parker said: ‘As a business we have grown substantially with 50 per cent growth on the previous year, and so we considered it to be the right time to move into modern fresh office space where we can service our growing client base in a welcoming and professional environment.
‘This investment demonstrates a clear commitment and a show of confidence in local owner managed businesses in the Isle of Man.
‘The diversity of our client portfolio is incredible, plumbers, roofing contractors, recruitment agencies, IT firms, cafes, restaurants and retail outlets, the list goes on.
‘Dealing with owner managed businesses can be a fantastic experience - no two days are rarely the same, discussing marketing opportunities, staffing issues, cash flow issues, growth opportunities, this is why l love my job so much and backed by the support of the brilliant team who have grown with the business makes this an even more rewarding experience.’
To coincide with the office move, Purple Accounts decided it was time to give the company a brand facelift, with new logo and literature.
Commercial director Helen Parker said: ‘Branding is extremely important for all businesses – no matter what size.
‘It is vital to differentiate and stand out in today’s competitive market place.
‘Refreshing the brand is an excellent way to demonstrate how a firm is moving with the times, what it stands for and how it communicates that message with its target market.
‘Purple Accounts has come a long way in a relatively short space of time and has had to grow up very quickly to stand firm.
‘We feel that the new branding looks and feels clean, crisp, modern, friendly and professional, almost as if to send out the message that after five years we are no longer the new kid on the block and we mean business.’
Purple Accounts have also taken the opportunity to expand its service offering with business support services in addition to its award winning accountancy services. These range from call minding, diary management, document storage, sales invoicing and debtor management.
David said: ‘We recognise that many of our clients have the dilemma of whether or not to employ staff to help with the administration tasks of running a business such as answering the phone, sending out invoices and chasing payment, so we have introduced these support services to help our clients to grow their businesses in a professional manner without the often prohibitive costs of employing staff. It gives them a huge degree of flexibility as we are effectively an extension to their business which can be used as and when it is required.
‘Today’s successful businesses need flexibility to be able to respond very quickly to changing market conditions, our client’s success is our success.’
