The move by the company, which is headquartered regionally in Salisbury, will enable it to build on work it has already done in the city and with the wider Oxfordshire and Wiltshire business communities.
The four-strong Oxford team will be headed up by regional managing partner Julie Palmer, who leads the firm’s South West and Wales teams.
The Oxford office is located on Oxford Business Park North, off Garsington Road, in the south east of the city.
Begbies Traynor, whose South West regional team won Regional Insolvency Practitioner Firm of the Year in last year’s national Insolvency and Rescue awards, also has an office in nearby Swindon.
Speaking of the development, Julie Palmer said: “We are delighted to announce our move into Oxford and are really looking forward to offering our renowned financial consulting and recovery expertise to local businesses.”
Julie added: “Many firms are finding that as the economic recovery continues, fresh challenges such as over-trading and consequent cash-flow strains are once again threatening businesses with ambitious growth plans. At Begbies Traynor we have developed a track record for helping management teams to place their businesses on a secure footing, in order to take advantage of increasing opportunities that Oxford offers.”
The Oxford team will consist of Julie Palmer (regional managing partner), Simon Campbell (director), Andrew Hook (administrator), Julie Wilson (office manager).
