Walker & Sutcliffe, the chartered accountancy practice based in Huddersfield, has launched The Sounding Board, a service that will provide clients with access to professional and dedicated advice and support when they need it most.

Providing dedicated time slots, clients can access virtual support through one-to-one zoom clinics without having to arrange a meeting.

Each 30-minute session, which is completely free of charge and part of the service offering at the practice, will give clients the chance to discuss business and private matters in a ‘safe space.’

Practice partner Nick Ledgard said: “We initially introduced The Sounding Board service during the pandemic, when we recognised that our clients needed an opportunity to share their thoughts and concerns with a trusted advisor at a regular time and using a focused format.

“Whether it’s the cost-of-living crisis, increasing overheads, decrease in sales, issues with pricing or something entirely unrelated to business, but that is still causing concerns, we are here to listen and to offer impartial advice through this easy to access and on-demand service.

“As a practice, we are here to help our clients and we feel that through The Sounding Board we can go one step further.

“What’s more, we’ve extended the service to contacts of our clients to make sure that we are giving support where it is needed most throughout the business community.

“We are very fortunate to have specialists within our team that can be relied upon to give honest and straight-forward guidance. If businesses within our network can make the most of that, then great!”
