We have moved...

Approximately 6 months ago, it became clear that we were outgrowing our existing offices in Kingfisher Court and we set to work to identify a suitable alternative that would give us additional space to continue our expansion plan.

After the usual trauma of agreeing heads of terms, reviewing leases undertaking schedules of condition etc. etc. we finally reached agreement on the 24 September and actually moved into our new abode on the 27 September.

Opus Accounting Limited. 2b The Votec Centre, Hambridge Lane, Newbury. RG14 5TN

Our new broadband and telephony provider Timico did a fantastic job in getting BT Open Reach on site at 08:00 on the 27th and by midday we had 2 fully functioning broadband lines and a VoIP telephone service.  Our new hosted IT system provided by Hosted Desktop UK, which we implemented the previous month, really proved itself with all our software and files being instantly accessible.

Just over a week in, and it is now starting to feel like home! the team are now working in a brighter larger office, with plenty of space between each of the desks. 

Hidden benefits are also coming to light - we are on the first floor with so much more space we are all doing a bit more exercise!

Although our telephone number is being diverted to the new premises, please make a note of our new number now +44 (0) 1635 896150.

If you find yourself in Newbury and would like to pop in to have a chat about your business and how we could help you, simply give us a call and we will get the kettle on!

The Olympic Games London 2012

Well, one of the most awaited event in London is almost upon us, I am sure it will be a great experience for all concerned.

Realistically however, we all know that the London transport system will be challenged by the additional people in the capital and that some level of disruption will be inevitable with road closures, additional parking restrictions and so forth. So what plans have you put in place to minimise the disruption to your business? At Opus Accounting we have a number of clients in London and have carefully considered how we can deliver a near 'business as ususal' experience.

We will be minimising the number of visits to the city and will be using telephone conferencing and video Skype as necessary to keep in touch with our clients and will use couriers for any necessary documents. We have also introduced the use of an electronic signing system 'Signable' which enables us to have a legally binding signed document in place by email.

We hope you and your families enjoy the spectacle and that your business is not unduly disrupted as a consequence. 

To our clients, if we can help in any way to minimise the effects on your busines please do not hesitate to contact us.
