Fyfe Moir & Associates expands Aberdeen office
Aberdeen-based accountancy firm Fyfe Moir & Associates (FMA) has relocated from the West End of the city to a new office in Westhill.
The move marks the beginning of a new era for the business which was conceived over pre-match drinks before Aberdeen FC games at Pittodrie Stadium.
Co-founders, Alan Moir and Graham Fyfe regularly met up in the Holburn Street location and discussed plans to launch their joint accountancy firm.
Mr Moir said the new office for the business in Arnhall Business Park was an exciting new episode for its two partners and their 12 staff.
The accountancy firm was founded in 2006 and has become “bigger than we ever thought we were going to be” according to Mr Moir.
When the opportunity arrived to relocate to spare accommodation next to Westhill company G5 Technologies, with easier access for clients thanks to on-site parking and the AWPR, it was an easy decision.
Mr Moir told The Press and Journal: “G5 had gone through a year without a tenant. We’ve signed a 10-year lease and they (G5) are looking forward to us working together.”
Both companies will benefit from referrals, with G5 – whose owner, Steve Brand, was introduced to FMA through the BNI business network – gaining a tenant they can trust to “pay on the button”, he said.
Mr Brand said: “This was a calculated and correct move. As soon as we worked through the proposal we knew it felt right.”
Mr Moir said the relocation and office refit represented a £40,000 “investment in our future”.
