Its All Adding Up for BFS Accountants

August 2013 was a defining month for Craig Benford and his company BFS Accountants as it was a time for new beginnings. Not only did Craig become a Father but he also leased his first office of 100 ft2 here at Ransom Wood in Oak House B.

Fast forward to June 2018 and Craig is relocating his ever-growing company into their new 1200 ft2 suite of offices in The Willows.

From 2013 the successful accountancy practice has grown their turnover by a whopping 10 fold and they now have further offices in Nottingham and Chesterfield. Craig has a dedicated team of 4 staff, Jerome, Jess, Sam and Jo who he described as “fantastic”. He plans to increase this in the coming months to 6.

Craig is an example of a real success story here at Ransom Wood. He is very dedicated often coming into the office at 6.30 a.m. to get the day started. His excellent service to his clients is paramount to the success of the company and he enjoys seeing their businesses flourish.

James Cannon, M.D. of Ransomwood Estates commented “I really love to see businesses growing at Ransom Wood and BFS have been going from strength to strength here. It has been a pleasure to be a part of the BFS story and I look forward to seeing Craig and the team continue to excel in their new offices.“

This week sees the BFS team move into their newly refurbished office in The Willows which even includes a pool table for his staff – how fab is that?



Craig commented “Its been a fantastic few years with a rate of growth more than I could have wished for. I’m hoping that continues with the new office which will give us the degree of professionalism that we need.”

  • Chris Kho


    Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
