Nearly all businesses in the UK have been adversely touched by COVID-19. The airline industry says it will be bankrupt without a bailout; restaurants, salons and retailers — chains and individually owned — have struggled even with the ‘Help Out to Eat Out’ government incentive, leaving countless hourly workers unemployed.

But surprisingly, some companies have seen soaring growth through COVID-19. Cloud Accounting Support Services (CASS), who moved into central Tamworth premises last October, have seen a significant change in their client’s behaviour during the pandemic. They offer set-up, training and management of the latest modern cloud accounting solutions such as Xero and Quickbooks Online that allow you to manage your business anytime, anywhere and on any internet connected device.

Now more than ever companies want to see their invoices, accounts and cash flow from environments away from the office.

CASS is now growing and has just recruited a full time Assistant Systems Accountant to join the team. Paul Barnes, the owner of CASS, is passionate about evolving local talent and is supporting his new recruit to achieve his Level 3 AAT qualification. Tom came to CASS initially as an apprentice from South Staffordshire college and CASS have been able to employ him full time with support from a government grant scheme from Tamworth Borough Council. The long-term aim is to help as many local companies as possible to see beyond the numbers and get a grip on their accounting processes.

“Tom joined me just over a year ago on an accredited apprenticeship scheme to begin his accounting journey and has gone from strength to strength. He has flourished in our uniquely positioned business and has enabled me to diversify and expand the services we offer. I’m delighted to be able to welcome Tom to the CASS family”.
