An accounting firm in Holcombe Brook celebrates its success as it prepares to open a second branch.
Cura Accounting opened its first office on Longsight Road in 2021 and is now preparing to introduce its second branch in less than two years, just across the road.
The company, led by chief executive Debbie Garcia, has gone from strength to strength since moving to Bury during the Covid-19 pandemic and has increased its workforce from eight to 35 people.
The new branch will house its new accounting center, a service which Debbie says is highly sought after by businesses, but for which few companies offer a dedicated service.
Debbie, 42, said: “A lot of people just don’t know where to go, you’re starting a new business, you need someone one day a week to do bookkeeping but you don’t have the budget or you don’t’ You don’t need someone full time, where are you going?
“I think it’s quite unique.
“I hope to get a lot of foot drops out of it, because no one else does.”
Since its start two years ago, Cura Accounting has been attracting bigger and bigger clients, including one with an annual turnover of £80million.
Despite the expansion, Debbie says she is keen to keep the business local and says the vast majority of her staff live in the Ramsbottom area.
“I think we offer a very personal service, so if you wanted the bookkeeping done every week it wouldn’t be a different person, it would be the same person doing your books every week and that’s key; consistency.”
Going forward, Debbie says she hopes to open a branch in Bolton, but would also like the business to be the first choice for all businesses in the borough.
“We are growing so rapidly that our plan is to open a branch in Bolton, recruit locally and win business locally.
“At the moment we have a lot of clients in Manchester and South Manchester but I would love to be known as the accounting center and finance function for all businesses in Bury, I don’t need more than that is my ambition.
