Brookson opens base in MediaCityUK

Accountancy firm Brookson has expanded with the launch of a new office in MediaCityUK.

The company, which specialises in support services for freelancers and contractors, has opened a base at The Greenhouse and will offer a free walk-in financial health check service.

Brookson, headquartered in Warrington, represents over 9,000 freelancers in the North West.

Martin Hesketh, managing director of Brookson, said, “Our approach to providing accountancy services to freelancers is very much focused on proactivity and by delivering up-to-date financial information on freelancers’ finances, we’re giving them the tools to make better decisions on their situation which will ultimately optimise their financial performance.

“More importantly, by removing the headache associated with getting finances, expenses and invoices in order, we’re freeing up the time spent on these tasks and allowing freelancers to get on with what they do best.”
