We’re changing our name – let us explain why, and what difference it will make…
Every business faces changes during its life and we are no different. We have been running for about 8 years now and have enjoyed the journey. We have established lovely offices in the Boathouse and have moved within the building several times as we have needed to adapt to our growing needs.
Some business changes are very subtle and not announced to customers and the public. However, some changes are more formal and noticeable and need to be expressed to the wider world.
Rebranding is a very public change to the business and is often used to show the changes a business is going through. This can be to modernise or adapt to changes in the business objectives.
We are no different, we have been through a lot of small changes over the early years of our business. This year we are looking to make a major public change to our business – we are changing our company name. This is a major change on the outside world but every other part of the business is staying the same. We are at the same offices, with the same team, and offering the same service to all our customers. We are continuing to look after our current customers and grow our business, always happy to meet new customers.
Our new business name will be Barwell Accountants. We have chosen the name to relate to Nickie Barwell, our owner director, and to highlight what and who we are – a local, friendly, approachable practise of accountants working on accounts, taxation, payroll and book keeping for our customers.
Our name change is probably subtle but something very important to us and have been preparing for this since the beginning of the year. We began the process by looking at all our options on name changes. We all discussed our potential name options, and as a team decided on the new name. Firstly, we had to make sure the name was available with Companies House, and the domain and website options were free. From there we looked at the logo and artwork we use. We all really liked the current colouring and fonts so didn’t feel a change was needed there.
We chose a period of transition using both names on our social media pages and emails, to ease the shift. From this April, we are Barwell Accountants.
