Haines Watts continues impressive national growth
Top 15 UK chartered accountants, Haines Watts, continues to add to its growth story through the acquisition of another six practices across the United Kingdom, since July 2018. These acquisitions follow the impressive stats released earlier in the year, recording 16% growth nationally for Haines Watts from a combination of both acquisition and organic growth.
The acquisition of practices in London, Nottingham, Wirral, Leicester, Tillicoultry, Worcester, and Tewkesbury strengthens the regional presence of Haines Watts across the country. In this year’s UK Accountancy Age Top 50, Haines Watts showed the most substantial growth for a multidisciplinary firm, in the top 20. Something which the latest acquisitions will only add to, with the total turnover for the most recent acquisitions estimated at GBP 7 million.
Haines Watts was also named as one of GGIs 2018 Member Firms of the Year. The award recognises firms that are prominent in particular areas of excellence within the GGI community, reflecting the innovation, achievement, strategy, and progress taking place within the industry.
The November acquisition of Gallaghers Chartered Accountants will solidify Haines Watts’ presence in the UK capital with the Central London offces collectively employing 150 people and turning over GBP 15 million in fees of the GBP 28 million Haines Watts fees in the Greater London region.
Through the acquisition of practices in both Leicester and Nottingham, Haines Watts continues its ongoing East Midlands growth plan and is moving forward with its aim to become the premier business advisor to SME businesses in the region.
Haines Watts also sees its first permanent base in Gloucestershire through its merger with CB Chartered Accountants in Worcester and Tewkesbury.
Over the last few months, Haines Watts has been continuing to build on the exceptional growth that it has already seen 2018. The most recent acquisitions strengthen its regional presence throughout the UK and allow it to offer a full range of services across UK regions. From business improvement, growth planning, tax advisory, R&D tax relief claims all the way to international trading, Haines Watts sees its specialist offerings improve and grow as it continues pursuing ambitious growth plans.
