Beam's financial workload, made lighter.

Beam were struggling to keep up with the ever increasing demands of their accounting and payroll. On top of that, Beam found it difficult to make the most of R&D tax credits.

Luckily Beam came to us. We handled the financial workload. They didn’t have to worry about an ever expanding payroll ever again and we made full use of R&D tax relief to channel more money into the company’s growth.
