Hentons accountancy firm has partnered with York Science Park to deliver free advice and guidance to students and startup businesses.
The partnership is part of Hentons Phase One initiative which will offer students, entrepreneurs and start-ups free advice at a series of workshops, covering everything from bookkeeping to cloud accounting and tax.
Tim Baum-Dixon from Hentons, said: “When York Science Park approached us to partner with the Phase One initiative, we were very keen to support it.
“There is so much to consider when starting up a business. Understandably, the focus is often on refining the product or service and how to bring it to market, but fundamental accounting principles can’t be ignored.”
York Science Park supports over 100 businesses from various sectors including science, technology, digital and creative. With modern office space and specialist laboratory facilities, it provides flexible space, inclusive of utilities on short-term agreements.
Olivia Chatten, from York Science Park, added: “The first workshop with Hentons, which we also opened up to entrepreneurial students at the University, was very popular, with positive feedback from attendees on its relevance and clarity.
“ By partnering with such an experienced accountancy firm, we are giving our residents a valuable added benefit that will ultimately help business growth.”
