AAB Audit team growth continues during lockdown

AAB Audit team growth continues during lockdown

Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading independent firms of Chartered Accountants & Business Advisors, has reported one of its biggest growth years on record for their Audit services.  

Over the last year, new business wins total £800,000 from around 30 new clients, with 30% of these new wins have being secured in the last 6 months, when the entire team at AAB were working from home, continuing to deliver for clients across the Central Belt and the North East of Scotland.  

Before lockdown, there was a clear shift in the market where businesses of all sizes, operating both domestically and internationally were looking for alternatives to global audit firms to ensure their service expectations were met. The coronavirus outbreak does not appear to have had an impact on this mindset.  

With restrictions in place making the traditional audit client interaction impossible, businesses needed their auditors to be quick thinking, technology driven and focused on putting client service first.  

AAB Partner and Head of Audit, James Pirrie, commented: “Before lockdown, the Audit team had been exceptionally busy and even as lockdown measures were put in place we demonstrated that, to the maximum extent possible, it was ‘business as usual’ in the AAB Audit department. We’ve had fantastic feedback from clients over this year, and I am so proud of the team for always working with an open mind, supporting each other and putting the client first.  

The clients who have come onboard this year operate in a variety of sectors and are based right across Scotland, with many having overseas subsidiaries or parent companies. If we were to pick a positive from this challenging time, it is that we are more prepared than ever to tackle complex, audits in any location. 

Throughout the next year and beyond, myself and the team look forward to continually exceeding our client’s expectations of our service while also continuing our growth across our key sectors and multiple locations.”
