Jeremy Oliver, partner, explained: “We are absolutely delighted that Twisted Automotive have chosen us as their new accountants and advisors. They are a tremendously successful company, dedicated to top-quality customer service.

“Their business is synonymous with the legendary Defender and one dedicated to the highest standards. They have perfected their  offering over the years by taking the time to totally understand the product they are working with and creating new, upgraded versions of an iconic vehicle.

In addition to audit tax and payroll services, Twisted will have our specialist taxation services and in-house corporate finance team to assist them on their growth journey

“We believe there is a synergy and a sense of shared objectives between the two firms which bodes extremely well for the future. We share the same values, have a great love of, and commitment, to Yorkshire and are both dedicated to providing the best possible service for our customers and clients ,” said Mr Oliver.

Ian Robinson of Twisted:

“There are many positive reasons why we took the decision to partner with Garbutt + Elliott, understanding the size of our business was key to the relationship, as a small and growing successful business we knew G+E would be in a position to appreciate who we are, where we’ve come from and our personal needs with the personal service to match.

“G+E offer a wide range of quality services from accounting and taxation through to financial advice, having this all under one roof makes the process much easier and more efficient for the running of Twisted. As well as efficiency, value for money was also important, knowing that as the Twisted business grows so would the need for more services and advice, G+E recognised offering good value for more money at the start would be beneficial as the need from Twisted increases.”
