National IFA doubles turnover

National IFA Inter-Alliance&#39s turnover has more than doubled in 1999.


The pre-tax losses of the firm, now claiming to be the UK&#39s largest national, dropped from £2.25m to £1.14m on a turnover of £12.8m.


It cites the purchase of a 51 per cent stake in IntelliFlo, a software development consultancy, as a main reason for the growth. Since the end of last year, it has acquired the balance of the company.


Chief executive Stuart McGreevy says he expects turnover to grow to £41m this year on the back of increased investment in its e-business ventures.
