Optigrün International AG are at the forefront of the green roof system solutions market, installing approximately two million square metres of roof per year throughout Europe and overseas. Since incorporating Optigreen Ltd as a UK subsidiary, they have grown to be one of the UK’s leading suppliers of green roof solutions, combining over 40 years of experience with a philosophy of continuous innovation.
Managing Director Stefan Zeller says, “As an overseas company, our knowledge of setting up a new business in the UK was limited so it was important for us to seek professional advice on the process involved. Thankfully, Wilder Coe’s services came highly recommended to us so we were comfortable that they had the experience and knowledge to guide us through the red tape and regulations involved in setting up in the UK.”
After incorporating the UK business, Optigreen Ltd approached Wilder Coe for assistance with Accounting services and Sage software training. The decision to outsource these services has had an invaluable effect on the growth of the business in the UK as Stefan explains, “Allowing Wilder Coe to take care of the accounting side of my business has allowed me to focus on the more technical product development aspects, and most importantly, gives me peace of mind that I am complying with requisite legislation”
He adds, “My business benefits from having an experienced pool of staff at Wilder Coe to assist me with all the different aspects of accounting. It’s a huge advantage to me to be able to have a named team of contacts who can handle any enquiry regarding Tax, Payroll, Sage or VAT both quickly and professionally.”
Stefan believes that ultimately, the quality of communication that exists between Optigreen Ltd and Wilder Coe is the key to the relationship’s success. Using the recent change to payroll legislation, RTI (Real Time Information), as an example Stefan says, “Wilder Coe approached us with the key facts relating to the changes in legislation, which kept me informed as to the potential impacts the legislation could have on the business and proposed solutions on the best way to implement those changes. I receive regular updates, which means I am always informed and able to make the best decisions for the business.”
