One of the new Senior Managers, Scott, joined EQ straight from school in 1994 and now leads the Forfar EQ Accounting department. The EQ team have gone from strength to strength in recent years, due to demand from clients outsourcing their accounting services such as payroll and bookkeeping to the specialist professionals. Now a team of 18, most of which are based in Dundee including the specialist payroll department that delivers 380 payrolls and processes 5,360 payslips each month for clients.

With many businesses looking to move to EQ for all their accounting, financial and tax needs, the demand to provide a ‘full service’ to clients is set to continue. To ensure we can deliver the quality of service our clients expect, we have increased our staff headcount by 27% in the last twelve months and are currently recruiting across all offices with demand for our services at an all-time high.
