Yorkshire Payments is a payment services provider, supplying businesses with electronic payment services. The fast-growing firm offers a variety of secure digital payment options from hand held terminals to online payment platforms.
Operating from their Brighouse base, they boast an impressive client base of more than 4,500 businesses who they provide simple, secure and reliable payment solutions to.
Yorkshire Payments was formed by young entrepreneur James Howard. Beginning with two staff members at a small base in a Halifax-based printing firm in 2013, they then moved to Jeremy’s above the Boathouse in Brighouse. From this small base, the firm has seen substantial growth.
James’s vision has remained to provide independent payment solutions to a range of businesses across the Yorkshire region and, having hit the ground running, Yorkshire Payments quickly progressed to employ seven full time staff members within one year.
Through fast growth the business expanded to new offices in September 2014 to their now current Brighouse base. Yorkshire Payments now supports thousands of businesses and the company’s strong customer service has ensured they have grown at a phenomenal rate.
To date Yorkshire Payments now recruit a team of 27 full time employees, with the aim to increase employees to 35 before the end of 2016 and forecasts a turnover of £1.7 million in 2016/17.
