With local councils providing an ever-growing range of services, it is extremely important to have sector experts that can be relied upon when you are delivering essential services and representing your communities.
That’s why BHIB Councils Insurance, a specialist insurance firm for parish and town councils, has joined forces with Scribe Accounts, a web-based accounts software built for local councils.
Scribe Accounts, based in North Walsham, Norfolk, have been working with local councils for over 30 years.
Scribe’s Managing Director Tim O’Shea said: “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with BHIB Insurers, a company that like us is happy to go the extra mile to support their clients and offers a bespoke, unique and experienced service to Town and Parish Councils.
“BHIB Insurance already work with a number of our customers, therefore it is a fantastic opportunity for us both to build new relationships whilst nurturing existing ones.”
Director for BHIB Councils Insurance, Michelle South, said: “We are delighted to partner with Scribe Accounts – a company with core values that are very much aligned to our own.
“The local council sector is becoming more pressured with further funding cuts, despite an increased demand from the community. Therefore, it is important that councils feel as supported as possible with affordable, comprehensive insurance options and access to a team of dedicated specialists.
“Our partnership with Scribe Accounts will ensure that our customers have access to an easy to use accounts package that understands them and their needs.”
