What has been going on at Bright Horizon?

Hi all – it has been a while since we posted on the blog here but if you read on you will see that we have had a very busy time here at Bright Horizon since November with a lot of changes.

As I am sure existing customers are aware by now Bright Horizon was taken over on 1st November by family owned Kara Accountants Ltd of Fawley, Southampton and Emily handed over the reigns and directorship to Nick and Jody Miles from that date.

Emily’s reason for the change of management was that she was very excitedly expecting her first child and we are pleased to report that mother and baby are both well enjoying life away from the hustle and bustle of accounting for now.

Bright Horizon remains for the time being a separate trading name of Kara Accountants Ltd. We had made arrangements to move from our office in Mudeford to a more central location in Bournemouth with Lewis to head up a branch over there. Unfortunately Lewis has had to make a difficult and unexpected decision to return home to his family in Essex for personal reasons. We of course thank him for his time with us and wish him all the best for the future.

This has put us a little on the back foot when it comes to moving premises, we have recruited here and between Tina, Sandra and the rest of the staff here we have the workload covered but without a local member of staff the office move has gone on hold temporarily.

We will of course re-instate a Dorset presence in the near future but for the time being our Fawley office should be used for any post please.

Internal changes aside we are all enjoying the start of what looks to be an interesting tax year. The economy looks to be on the up with the majority of clients showing improved sales particularly in the digital sector.

We hope you are all enjoying 2017 so far and please dont hesitate to contact us if you have any
