Gorilla Accounting has revealed plans to treble its client base to more than 10,000 clients and double its headcount to more than 100 over the next five years.
The Bolton-based firm now has more than 3,300 clients and 50 members of staff after more than doubling its client base since HMRC launched Making Tax Digital in April 2019.
In the past six years, Gorilla has grown 17-fold from a team of three to a workforce of more than 50 at its offices in Lynstock Way in Bolton.
The firm specialises in handling the accounts of SMEs and self-employed professionals such as IT contractors, cyber security contractors, crypto investors, landlords, vets, pharmacists, and medical locums.
Gorilla is also reportedly set to get another “large boost” in the next two years as it will become law in April 2024 for more than four million self-employed people as well as landlords to file digital tax returns.
Daniel Fallows, company director, said: “Our growth plans are solid, credible and sustainable. We know how many new clients we need to bring in every month to treble our client base and we have been healthily exceeding our growth plans month-on-month for a while.
“We are fully focussed on delivering a better accountancy service for the self-employed and SMEs and scaling our business significantly over the next five years.”
