Isabella (third from left) has been running the company for 26 years - and said the move was an “important step” for its future.

Isabella Callaghan, managing director of Number Crunchers, said: “We are very excited to be moving to larger premises in Eckington and taking on new staff to strengthen our team. The new offices are an important step in the company’s future growth.

“I started Number Crunchers in 1996 as a Sole Trader and I still get a thrill about what we do today. My ethos has always been to treat each client’s business as if it were my own and to take the fear and mystic out of accountancy.

“As we enter a new digital age in accountancy, we are fully committed to supporting our clients as they make the transition to Making Tax Digital.”

Number Crunchers is currently preparing businesses for Making Tax Digital, a government initiative that will launch in two years. From April 6 2024, all self-employed businesses and landlords with an annual business or property income above £10,000 will need to follow the rules for Making Tax Digital for Income Tax. HMRC will require that a return is submitted quarterly, and that businesses will need to use Making Tax Digital compatible software to keep digital records.
