Company history

Delivering efficiency, cost savings and business transformation have always held centre-stage throughout our history, which traces its roots back to 2003 when Chris Robinson, an ICAEW- qualified, KPMG-trained Chartered Accountant transferred the back office recruitment and payroll tasks of a large healthcare company to its current location in Ahmedabad, India.

Since then, clients have relied on QX and its subsidiary organisations for solutions to their business needs. The company’s reputation has been primarily built on the back of its outsourced finance and accounting, payroll and recruitment services. More recently it has added corporate advice and software services to its core competencies and is now a company with over 600 people serving clients across the UK, US and Australia.

In 2014, as we celebrated a landmark 10th year in business, the core strategy and values remain the same.
