Leading Scottish taxation and business advisory practice, EQ Accountants LLP is expanding its Dundee premises to accommodate significant growth in recent years – and further anticipated growth in the short term.
The firm, which also has offices in Forfar, Cupar and Glenrothes, is expanding its City Quay premises by incorporating the 2,300 sq ft unit next door, which was acquired at the end of 2018. The work to renovate and connect the additional space commenced last week, and will create an office of around 8,500 sq ft. This will complete a £1.25 million investment in the City Quay property by EQ in the last two years.
The development follows a near 70% increase in headcount within the Dundee office since 2015. With 54 people now in place, the firm has recruited into its client service teams and across Central Services, at all levels from school leavers and graduates, to experienced professionals.
