Browne Craine starts up Accountancy Clinic for small businesses

James Sayle and Craig Mitchell

Browne Craine & Co (“Browne Craine”) has recently set up a small business accountancy clinic aimed to help budding entrepreneurs with any of their accounting needs. Browne Craine directors James Sayle and Craig Mitchell will be leading the initiative.

“We have such a diverse range of small businesses on the Island and it’s great to see even more starting up on a regular basis,” said James. “We are really keen to help local entrepreneurs as it is a daunting time setting up and running your own business, so any advice we can give them, will hopefully make running their business a lot easier.”

The accountancy clinic is open every Thursday* between 2.30pm and 5.00pm at Browne Craine’s office (Burleigh Manor on Peel Road in Douglas) where anyone with a small business can pop into the office and see one of Browne Craine’s friendly accounting team for a free 30-minute chat. So, whether it’s someone who is thinking of starting up their own business, has already set up their own business or has even been in business a little bit longer, and has questions about how they should be doing their accounts, the accountancy clinic has been designed for this purpose.

“It’s great to see that Browne Craine are supporting local small businesses on the Island,” said Dan Walker, On-Island Business Development Manager at the Department of Economic Development. “Over the last few years, the Department has invested a lot of resource, such as the Micro Business Grant Scheme, into helping new and existing small businesses grow so I’m pleased to see more and more businesses like Browne Craine getting involved and supporting innovation and entrepreneurialism on the Isle of Man.’

Browne Craine was originally established in 1954 and has over 60 years of experience in the industry.
