The Leeds-based agency also recorded a pre-tax profit of £934,000. The previous year’s figures (recorded for 14 months until December 2014) recorded a turnover of £16.8m and a pre-tax profit of £192,000.

"Last year’s figures were not a true reflection on the business. In addition to changing our reporting dates, it was also the year of the rebrand- meaning we had a huge number of one off costs," said James Wilkins, manging director at Vista. "If you compare like for like, our sales have actually increased by around 15%."

Overall, Wilkins said they had achieved a strong year of growth, with similar increases expected for the 2016 financial year.

"We’re ahead of our five-year plan and we have a clear set of business goals and objectives outlined," Wilkins added. "The company has grown and added 35 new members to the team, all of whom are the right fit for Vista. We have good staff retention levels and we’ve seen growth in the automotive and technology sectors of our business.
