04 Apr Douglas Home & Company Open an Office in Scotland’s Capital
Celebrating 35 years in business our firm has expanded by opening a new office in Edinburgh’s Rutland Square.
Growing from a single office in Berwick Upon Tweed in the early 1980’s, we now have premises across the Scottish Borders and beyond. Building on an already growing client base in the capital, the Edinburgh offices will cement our commitment to our clients in the area.
Our Managing Director, Alan Drummond, has commented:
“We are delighted to be opening an office in Edinburgh which will enable us to continue working closely with our local clients right on their doorstep. Our company prides itself on our client focused approach and we look forward to providing these services to new markets and meeting many more ambitious business owners across the city in the coming months.”
Founded in 1983 by former Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home’s nephew, Andrew Douglas-Home, we have gone through many changes over the past three decades. Significant expansion in the early 1990’s saw us become one of the first financial firms in the UK to embrace new technologies, introducing computers to the business as early as 1990.
More recently we have reacted to the changing needs of clients by diversifying our offerings to include tax planning and succession, wills and estates and IT services. What has remained consistent throughout Douglas Home & Company’s history is our commitment to looking after clients and providing professional, proactive and forward-thinking advice and guidance.
Having joined Douglas Home & Company in 1990, Alan is proud of how much we have grown while still maintaining the family-focused values that our organisation has had from the very beginning.
“Douglas Home & Company’s aim has always been to remain independent and focused on clients. Our people are most certainly our strength and we pride ourselves on our expertise in helping our clients, whether that’s a large business or a family, to make the most of their assets. When people are looking for a tax advisor, it’s about finding somebody who cares, knows what they’re doing and can spot opportunities – that’s where we excel, with many of our directors personally working closely with our clients.”
At 35 years old, we plan to continue providing a trusted, people focused service for our clients. Alan added:
“More and more companies, large and small, are valuing the way we work and the level of service we provide. I know that we will keep doing what we do best for the next 35 years and continuing to diversify our offering to the benefit of our clients, both in Edinburgh and across the country.”
