Top Business Consultancy Extends Services to Assist Post Pandemic Recovery

North East business consultancy, HiThrive, is extending its offerings to provide even more support to local firms during the critical post pandemic recovery period. With the introduction of dedicated virtual assistant and bookkeeping services, HiThrive aims to provide small firms with reliable administrative support, allowing business owners to focus on core operations.

The addition of virtual assistant services to HiThrive’s existing offerings will provide a number of benefits to business owners as they build and implement growth and recovery strategies following the COVID-19 pandemic. With diary and inbox management, note typing, customer service support, and database maintenance amongst the possible tasks that can be delegated to a skilled VA, business owners can free themselves up for other critical tasks.

The launch of HiThrive’s bookkeeping and Xero cloud accounting services will also ensure that business owners can maintain compliance and data accuracy during particularly busy and hectic periods with invoicing and bank reconciliation, payroll, and support with VAT returns and self assessments. Both services have been designed with micro and small businesses in mind, enabling firms to select the services they need, right when they need them.

“We know that there are already financial support packages in place to help many small businesses survive lockdown, but there’s really very little in the way of the administrative and business level support. That’s going to be crucial for helping these organisations recover from an operational perspective following 12 months of disruption and uncertainty,” says Wiebke Rowland, HiThrive Business Support Manager. “By extending our services, we’re ensuring we’re here, and we’re accessible, when firms need us most.”

The introduction of HiThrive’s new services comes at a time when many organisations are beginning to think more closely about their recovery plans as the country looks set to return to a greater level of normality this summer. It is anticipated that temporary back-of-house support services will fast become a strategic necessity and business essential as organisations strive to ensure they have the right skills and resources in place to facilitate efficient recovery.

While these services may be new to HiThrive’s offerings, the team are certainly no strangers to virtual assistant support and bookkeeping. Having offered these services on an invitation-only basis since the company was launched four years ago, 2021 marks the first time that HiThrive is making this level of additional business support so easily accessible to all SMEs in the North East.

The new services are available from as little as £15 per hour, with zero commitment, pay-as-you-go services ideal for SMEs requiring ad-hoc support.
