When looking for an accountant, it was important to us to work with a firm who, like us, provided a local service accompanied by big ideas
Who are Zoology?
Mark Mountney became a hairdresser straight from school and at the age of 24 with a small financial loan decided to strike out on his own. Three salons later and Zoology is now a multi award-winning salon group.
What did they need?
Thinking it would be easy Mark was taken by surprise how complex the finance side of the business could be. Getting through 5 accountants in 5 years, Mark was struggling to find the support needed. After trying several accountants who never seemed to have the time or focus for his business, Mark followed his bank manager’s recommendation and contacted THP.
How did we help?
“THP helped with the finances and advised me where the pitfalls lay. It was tough opening that salon just as the recession kicked in. It was a scary risk taking a different concept to a different market at that time. But THP was brilliant. They really go ‘beyond accountancy!”
Finally Mark has been able to establish a long-term partnership since discovering THP. “I’ve been with them for over 10 years, and they do everything for us – payroll, tax returns, VAT and the rest. What makes THP stand out is the fact they’re contactable, helpful and professional.”
