Moore Thompson takes the biscuit at business event

One of the East of England’s leading accountancy firms, Moore Thompson, has shared its expertise on grant funding with local businesses at the popular Peterborough Biscuit Business Event.

Peterborough Arena was filled with hundreds of businesses trying to meet and learn more about the region’s top firms and companies.

As a long-term supporter of Peterborough Biscuit, Moore Thompson was in attendance with its grant fund finding specialist Janet Brown who delivered two free 30 minute talks to guests at the show.

With many businesses worried about the potential loss of grants following the UK’s departure from the EU, Janet was on hand to give advice on the variety of opportunities still available to them and how they could access them.

Speaking after the event, Janet said: “The businesses that we addressed certainly had some concerns about Brexit, but they were more focused on how they could make the most of the opportunities currently on offer.

“Businesses tend to see the tender process for bids as something that is time-consuming, but the benefits can be significant.

“Since the launch of our grant finder services we have seen a fantastic response from local businesses and I was delighted to share my expertise further afield at this event.”

During the event, guests could also visit Moore Thompson’s stand to learn more about its wider service offering, including the firm’s newly launched online accounting advice service MT Cloud.

Mark Hildred Managing Partner at Moore Thompson, said: “We have been coming to and supporting Peterborough Biscuit for a couple of years now and each year it impresses us.

“We were delighted to provide advice to businesses at this year’s show and hope that those we spoke with will benefit from our assistance in the months to come.”

Moore Thompson has a long history of supporting and sponsoring local business events, including its regular Spalding Business Club which meets monthly in the town.
