The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) has launched an accountancy and business advisory service, from experts Johnston Carmichael.
Johnston Carmichael is an experienced firm in the brewing sector which already works with many independent breweries. It has worked with SIBA and its legal partner Napthens to launch the new service for brewers.
Johnston Carmichael’s food and drink team work with brewers across the UK on a wide range of services, from payroll, accounting and tax matters, to digital transformation, corporate finance, and business strategy.
The new service promises SIBA members a response within 48 hours and a free one-hour consultation, discussing accountancy or wider business advisory-related questions.

“When looking at the range of benefits SIBA offers, it was clear this was an area in which we were lacking, yet it’s an area that causes members a significant amount of worry,” said SIBA chief executive Andy Slee.
“Access to free, impartial advice from a company who understand the brewing industry is hugely valuable to our members.
“I also want to make clear that SIBA take no commission or have any commercial involvement in the areas discussed — it’s all about getting members the best advice and access to the best-suited, most cost-effective services and solutions.”
