A commitment to efficiency and sustainability has driven the recent growth of Lee Coombes Accountancy, a leading Swansea-based accountancy services provider that has expanded its team and transitioned fully to paperless practices in 2023.

Over the past year, it has seen a surge in demand for its services, driven by the rapidly changing business landscape and increased reliance on digital solutions. As a result, the company has expanded its team with several new hires, including additional accountancy and support staff.

In addition to expanding its team, Lee Coombes Accountancy has also moved fully paperless, streamlining its operations and reducing its environmental footprint. By eliminating paper documents, the company can now process and manage financial information more efficiently, while also reducing its reliance on physical storage space.

From April 1, it began operating fully paperless, and the decision to do so was to further diversify and modernise, as it already utilises several digital applications that have allowed it to improve its service by making accounting processes as simple as possible for its customers. In addition to this, it conducted a slight rebranding, by adding the word “digital” in green to its logo to signify this progressive change.

As part of its transition, Lee Coombes Accountancy also introduced a new client portal function to the website, allowing customers to access and store accounting information in an easily accessed and user-friendly place. The portal allows for the uploading of documents and is a core part of its digital transformation, helping to automate document sharing, digital signature technology, client onboarding and more.

Its growth and commitment to sustainability reflect its dedication to providing innovative and reliable accounting solutions that meet the evolving needs of modern businesses. Lee Coombes Accountancy is also an avid supporter of local sports teams as well as the Ospreys, and is the primary sponsor of Ospreys winger and local star, Keelan Giles.

Lee Coombes, Managing Director of Lee Coombes Accountancy, said:

“2023 has been a year of tremendous growth for us, and we are thrilled to be able to expand our team to better serve our clients and our new team members will play a critical role in maintaining this level of excellence.

“Our decision to go paperless reinforces our ongoing commitment to sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment, as well as providing an accessible service for our clients. We are proud to be doing our part to promote a more sustainable future for all.”
