Milsted Langdon has announced that it will close its offices on 28 May to reward staff with an additional day off in recognition of their “hard work” during the pandemic.
The firm, which employs 200 people across five offices in the South-West of England, said that the various financial support schemes launched by the government have created a lot of “additional work” for the accountancy profession.
In preparation for the closing of its offices, Milsted Langdon is reaching out to clients to make them aware so that they can “submit any important queries or documents in advance”.
Rachel Hotham, people partner at Milsted Langdon, said: “Our partnership is exceptionally grateful for the effort and commitment which has been put in by our team during the last year.
“It has been a tough period for many people, not least because of the restrictions on everyday life and concern for loved ones. To show our appreciation of our staff members’ hard work, we decided we should declare an extra day’s holiday across the firm to recognise their contribution.”
Founded in 1988, Milsted Langdon has five accountancy branches across the UK, including offices in Bath, London and Yeovil.
