Leading accountancy firm Johnston Carmichael has expanded in Glasgow, following a period of rapid growth.

The company has taken over a further 3,000 sq. ft. at its West George Street office, amounting to a 50% increase in floor space to accommodate its growing team.

The number of permanent staff in Glasgow has increased by more than a fifth over the past year, with 12 new appointments establishing a Business Solutions team in the city and strengthening its Audit, Tax and Restructuring services.

In the last year, the Glasgow office has recruited eight graduates to train as chartered accountants, and two school leavers on a six-year programme to train as chartered accountants.

Mark Houston, managing partner in Johnston Carmichael's Glasgow office said:

 "Our Glasgow team has experienced strong growth over the past year, as we continue to expand and develop the range of services we provide. From financial planning, audit and tax to corporate finance and restructuring, we now have 67 staff based in Glasgow and we have ambitious plans to grow further, now that we have extra office space".

Johnston Carmichael has over 700 staff and partners, across 11 offices in Scotland, with  turnover breaking the £40m barrier in 2016.
