The business has grown strongly since it was first formed and now has a large number of corporate and agricultural clients across South Wales.

Speaking of the new offices Gooderham said ‘‘Pembroke House was too good an opportunity to miss. Its location, quality of offices and size presented us with a real opportunity from which to further grow the business. We have experienced consistent annual growth since the first year, despite the current economic conditions, and are adamant that our new headquarters will provide us a platform to achieve and surpass our targets for the next 20 years.’’

Green and Co currently serve over 600 business clients, with over half of that figure representing farming clients. Nick Park, 51, heads up the faming division and explains how farming has been a vital facet to the success and longevity of the firm.

‘‘Advising agricultural businesses is a huge part of what we do. My family have been farming in South Wales since 1901, so it’s in my blood. I still run the family farm, so I understand the important tax and succession issues that farming families face. We have a huge wealth of experience in our team to help farmers get the most effective tax advice and guidance on how to run their businesses. It has been at the heart of Green and Co for two decades, and will continue to be integral to our business here at Pembroke House.’’

Gooderham, 35, said ‘‘We see ourselves as business advisors as well as accountants. Due to the firm’s longevity, we have developed a wide array of contacts in South Wales who are able to help businesses get the best out of their activity.’’
