Further Expansion at Hogg and Thorburn, Chartered Accountants and Tax Specialists, Galashiels.

The Partners in Hogg and Thorburn are delighted to announce that Mr Bruce Currie, FAAT and Mrs Jayne Rogerson BA CA, have been appointed Associates with immediate effect.
Hogg and Thorburn C. A., have been in business in Galashiels for nearly 70 years and are continuing their expansion to meet the varied needs of clients, both large and small, with these two new appointments.

Bruce Currie has been with the firm for over 14 years and has an extensive knowledge of all aspects of management account production for various types of businesses. We regard this as essential for some of our clients and it allows them to monitor and run their businesses more successfully and satisfy the needs of bank managers etc. More often than not, Bruce travels to the clients’ premises as we want to give the client the maximum benefit of his services with the least possible disruption and this has proven to be extremely effective. Bruce can be contacted at
bc@hoggandthorburn.co.uk

Mrs Jayne Rogerson BA CA, carried out her accountancy training at Hogg and Thorburn over 20 years ago and once qualified went on to have a career in private practice and eventually ran her own very successful accountancy firm. We are delighted to welcome her back and Jayne’s experience gained over the years, across a very broad spectrum of businesses, will be invaluable.
We are getting a lot of enquiries about “Cloud Accounting” which many businesses see as the future path for all types of accounts preparation and Jayne has mastered one of the providers of this software. She is able to discuss the many benefits of using it with clients and can organise its full implementation into the business and all aspects of training until the client is confident in its use. Jayne can be contacted at jr@hoggandthorburn.co.uk.

Payroll procedures have become increasingly difficult and time consuming for all businesses recently and with the advent of Auto Enrolment (AE), many of our clients have asked us to carry out all their payroll requirements especially organising AE. We have a dedicated payroll team that are more than capable of dealing with all business owners needs when it comes to payroll and we see the biggest risk for small employers in the near future, is ignoring AE or not tackling the procedures correctly. The fines are huge and we would urge any employer who has not registered or has a question on AE to contact us without any obligation. Our wages department can be contacted at wages@hoggandthorburn.co.uk.

Over the last few years, Hogg and Thorburn has invested heavily in all the up to date technology and we are confident this investment will pay dividends not only for us but also for all our clients. “We believe in giving a first class service at a price which we are happy to stand comparison with against other Chartered Accountants in the Borders and invite business owners to contact us to explore all that we can offer”, says Vivien Hogg C.A., one of the Partners.

    Did you know........

    Five miles north east of Earlston and just to the west of the village of Gordon, the surprisingly complete remains of Greenknowe Tower, also sometimes known as Greenknowe Castle, stand a hundred yards to the north of the A6105.

    From the gate the access path leads up a gentle slope and around to the entrance, as usual for a tower house this is placed in the easily defended angle between the main body of the tower and the wing containing the spiral staircase.

    Externally, Greenknowe Tower is in good condition, largely complete up to the original roof level, though part of one corner turret has collapsed at some point. The appearance of the tower is made all the more interesting by the use of red stone in parts of the structure, brightening up what would otherwise be a uniform grey. The tower would originally have been surrounded by a walled courtyard, and part of the courtyard surface can still be seen to its east.

    Internally the kitchen on the ground floor retains its vaulted roof, but from the first floor hall upwards the tower is open to the skies. The spiral stair can be followed up to a platform at the upper floor level in the stair wing.

    Greenknowe Tower was built in 1581 by a minor landowner, James Seton, and he lived here with his wife Janet Edmonstone. The lintel above the main entrance carries the date of construction, the shields of the Seton and Edmonstone families, and the initials IS and IE: the "I"s should be read for "J"s. The Seton family had owned land in the Parish of Gordon since marrying into the Gordon family: who in turn had been granted the estate by Malcolm II in 1018.

    In the 1600s the tower was purchased by the Pringle family of Stichel, one resident being the noted Covenanter, William Pringle. By 1850 it was no longer lived in, and in 1937 it was placed in state care by the Dalrymple family, who also contributed towards its consolidation. Today Greenknowe Tower is in the care of Historic Environment Scotland #LoveBorders
