Clear Start Accountants is on target to achieve Canadian sales of over £550,000 this year following notable investment and subsequent growth in Canada.
With international expansion being a major focus for the business, NW business entrepreneur Fiaz Ashraf, CEO of Clear Start Accountants opened Clear Start Debt and Budget Services LLC in Toronto in 2021. Following a recent investment of over one million Canadian Dollars by his company, Fiaz has expanded the operation there to a head count of 14 people. They are also currently recruiting for further roles to accommodate additional growth.
The Canadian arm, similarly to the main UK operation, offers budgeting services to customers, to support clients in managing their outgoings, and offset the rapidly rising cost of living which is being experienced on a global scale.
The notable growth of the business in Canada, mirrors the significant success enjoyed by Clear Start Accountants UK business, which after establishing in only 2019 saw sales of £4.2 million 2022.
Commenting, Fiaz Ashraf, says: “We entered Canada only two years ago, and our unique monthly budget offering and bespoke client software devised here in the UK, is proving a roaring success. To enhance our offering further in Toronto, we have further ambitions to become a self-contained Insolvency practice over the next 12 months, therefore have firm plans in place for further expansion.”
