Duncan & Toplis bucks trend by opening larger Loughborough office during Covid-19

Duncan & Toplis ended 2020 with a bold investment into Loughborough after five years in the town.

The chartered accountancy and business advisory firm, which opened its first office in Leicestershire in 1987 and took over the Marsh & Moss office in Loughborough after a 2015 acquisition, has expanded its presence by moving into a larger building to support its growing team.

The company’s Loughborough team will now be based at 3 Princes Court, Royal Way – the former home of the Loughborough Echo newspaper.

New Loughborough office reflects how far Duncan & Toplis has come in recent years

Duncan & Toplis director Julie Chapman said: “When we acquired our Loughborough office in 2015, our ambition was to ensure that we retained the dedication and personal touch of a small, local practice while also unlocking the huge range of advantages of being part of a larger company with global connections.

“Five years on, we’re making the next big step of supporting our future growth with new premises in the town so we can help more companies and individuals to reach their goals and fulfil their potential.

“Of course, at a time when people are working from home as much as they can – including our own team – I can understand why it might come as a surprise to see us investing in office space.

“But this reflects just how far we’ve come and just how serious we are about the future of our business in Loughborough and Leicestershire. 2020 has been a tough year, but it’s now our collective responsibility to move forward, supporting one another to thrive, not just survive.

“This area is one of the best places to do business in the country and we want to help businesses across all sectors to seize every opportunity and bounce back stronger than ever.”

The Loughborough office supports hundreds of businesses in the area, stretching from Gotham to Mountsorrel, and its team works alongside more than 400 colleagues based in 11 offices across the East Midlands in delivering specialist services including accountancy, business advice, legal, IT and HR.

Since March, the Chamber patron has helped businesses to access more than £26m in funding support to protect jobs and ensure long-term sustainability.
