Cowgills and GMCC announce partnership to drive international investment into Manchester

We are delighted to announce that we have become the first advisor to enter into an ‘Approved Supplier’ relationship with the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC).

The partnership has been created to encourage international investment into Greater Manchester.

Cowgills is the very first approved supplier to GMCC for this particular scheme, we bring with us many years of experience in providing support for overseas companies looking to enter the Greater Manchester market.

The team at Cowgills has a vast and highly experienced international offering.  Headed by partner Alex Hesketh, the division has been extremely successful in assisting businesses when investing and trading overseas.

Alex comments: “Our International team covers the full spectrum of accountancy and advisory services from company registration to structuring advice, audit, payroll and tax advisory. We are able to support both locally based and overseas management teams”.

Alex continued: “We have been working with GMCC for a number of years now and we are delighted that they have invited us to become the first ‘Approved Supplier’ for their award-winning international trade services”.

“Bringing international investment into the Greater Manchester region is critical to the local economy, particularly in the current climate. We are very much looking forward to working together in attracting international businesses to our region”.

Alex added: “As an independent regional outfit, we are able to price our services far more competitively than our multinational counterparts and with this, provide a far more personal service, working as a trusted partner as opposed to just another service provider”.
