Accountants and business advisers Cassons are once again joining forces with the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce to provide backing to local businesses trading worldwide.

The firm has pledged to renew its long-term sponsorship deal of the Chamber’s International Trade Club, which aims to help members share their experiences with fellow exporters and importers and develop their knowledge of international trade matters.
The three-year sponsorship agreement builds on the successful partnership between Cassons and the Chamber that was initially sealed in 2015.

Mandy Lockett, International Business Director of the Chamber said: “The partnership with Cassons over the last three years has been a huge success because between us we have an amazing cross section of member companies engaged in International Trade activities around the world.
“Like Cassons, the Club provides an invaluable source of professional guidance to our members. We are delighted we will be joining forces again for another three years.”

Cassons, a Diamond member of the Chamber of Commerce, plays a key role in the Club, which meets five times a year to discuss important aspects of international trade and current issues and gain insight from guest speakers.

Les Nutter, Managing Partner at Cassons said: “We have worked well together over the last three years because we share the philosophy as the team behind the International Trade Club. We are sure this relationship will go from strength to strength in the future.”

Cassons has long had a focus on international trade – helping businesses export to new markets and encouraging inward investment. It is a member of BKR International, one of the world’s leading accounting associations, with representatives from more than 150 independent accounting and business advisory firms worldwide. Membership of the group gives the firm access to colleagues in over 300 offices in 70 different countries.
