Top 40 accountants Bishop Fleming are celebrating ten successful years at Stratus House on the Exeter Business Park.

The firm, which started in 1919, moved from Barnfield Crescent in the City centre to become a neighbour of the MET office in Easter 2007.

Ten years on, partners and staff are marking this milestone with a few well-known brands of Easter egg.

Partner in Charge of the Exeter office, James Finnegan, commented: “Bishop Fleming's decision to move to Stratus House was absolutely the right one, as it has allowed the firm to expand at a rapid rate. This has been transformative in that it has helped to make Bishop Fleming one of the fastest growing firms of accountants in the country.”

Last year saw the firm's fee income rise to a record £19.9m, following organic growth of 13.6%.

Mr Finnegan said: “The office space we have on the Exeter Business Park has allowed us to increase our recruitment of people and the range of services we offer, including corporate finance, tax, probate and our Accounting Solutions package ahead of Making Tax Digital.”

Bishop Fleming has seven offices in total with 29 partners and 330 staff.

The firm is currently ranked 42nd in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2017, and in 33rd position in the UK's national league table of accountancy firms.
