BHP backing local business on world stage

Independent chartered accountants Barber Harrison & Platt (BHP) has joined forces with South Yorkshire International Trade Forum (SYITF), demonstrating its dedication to supporting local businesses in international trade.

Lisa Leighton, partner at BHP, said: “Following the Government’s call to close the trade gap, more businesses are recognising the benefits of selling overseas, and with the right support they can target new customers from around the globe.”

Richard Edwards, Chair of SYITF, said “We are delighted to welcome Barber Harrison & Platt as a strategic partner. This alliance will add real value to the Forum for the benefit of our members.  Like SYITF, BHP is an independent organisation, showing equally a commitment to support companies to grow in international trade.” 

SYITF encourages international trade in order to benefit the UK economy at large. It is business led by Directors that are experienced in exporting and importing as well as dealing with multiple markets. Members of SYITF have access to networking events, advice, information and guidance from some of the region’s leading exporters, as well as now being able to work with advisors like BHP that have strong links with accountants around the world.
