Mint Accounting is to open an office in Dundee to complement the existing Aberdeen and Ayrshire operations citing the significant regeneration in the city as being the main motivating factor.
The award winning business has invested significant funds including £40,000 for renovating the space at 63 Dock Street, which will be home to the Dundee team of four.
Charlotte Gillett, commercial director at Mint Accounting comments, “We are looking forward to expanding into Dundee as part of our long term strategy to have a strong presence throughout Scotland. As a company who was one of the early adopters of online accounting, our knowledge and experience of modern business and changes in technology is vast.
“We have been implementing Xero for our clients for just over four years, so the whole team is highly experienced and all are Xero Certified. We are able to offer our clients something different through our knowledge of cloud systems and, using those that integrate seamlessly with Xero, we can create a truly streamlined system for clients that massively increases business efficiency.
“Dundee is fast becoming a vibrant and exciting city to do business in, and this approach fits well with how we operate. Mint Accounting prides itself on being refreshingly different, and innovative Dundee businesses encapsulate many of our core values.
“As young company ourselves we believe we can truly help these young businesses and start ups that are appearing in this market. We have been where they are and understand the struggles that they face. In order for us to have grown our business quickly, we ourselves have had to seek funding from both traditional bank lending and crowdfunding, which has given us a real insight into growth options for these types of businesses.
“We are looking to start operating in the Dundee area from the end of May, and we can’t wait to start getting to know the people and businesses around the city. It’s an exciting venture into the buoyant Dundee business community.”
Mint Accounting was recently named Xero Partner of the Year for Scotland at the 2015 UK 2015 Xero Awards, held at the financial technology event, Xerocon, at Battersea Evolution in London. The company currently employs 17 staff from its Aberdeen and Ayrshire offices.
