summ.it Accounting Solutions Limited was formed in 2000 by Stephen Dunbar born out of the thinking that SME’s of a variety of sizes and requirements had little in terms of options for good quality finance department solutions, other than the traditional routes of employment, or expensive use of traditional high street accounting practices not geared up for the commercial requirements of an industry need.
summ.it offers a perfect hybrid approach which sits neatly between an in-house finance department and an off site accountancy practice. As our successful alternative to the traditional approaches saw our client base begin to grow the replication of outsourced IT support services was launched as a natural fit to the accounts service offering.
In 2003 with the advances in technology, the development of the internet and associated forms of connectivity the Mauritius back office was launched (see below). In 2004 summ.it developed its IT offering, headed up by Neil Smith. The company continued to grow from strength to strength and in 2013 saw the additional outsourced service offering to SME’s of HR & Training support services as a natural fit to the business and a merger with HR Assist Limited (formed in 2006 by Jayne Sanderson-Brown) was completed and the change in structure and name of the business to summ.it Assist LLP took place.
