READING-BASED HMT Assurance has joined MHA MacIntrye Hudson.

HMT provides a range of business and accounting services, mainly to high-growth, aspirational businesses and large corporates. The firm, which consists of 3 partners and 19 staff, will now operate under the name of MHA MacIntyre Hudson.

HMT's partners are described as "all ex-Big Four with considerable experience in dealing with organisations undergoing change and working towards or from some sort of corporate transaction".

Rakesh Shaunak (pictured), chairman of MHA MacIntyre Hudson, said that Thames Valley is an "important area" of growth for the firm in 2013. The firm is looking to create critical mass in areas where it can serve key sectors – such as Thames Valley's proliferation of tech businesses. It currently serves that market primarily through its High Wycombe office.

"The sector is growing, with lots of potential," said Shaunak.

Similar deals are likely from MHA MacIntyre Hudson in 2013, Shaunak told Accountancy Age. The firm would always be mindful of not encroaching into the areas occupied by the other members of the MHA association of firms.

"On the HMT deal, we have kept [fellow MHA member firm] Monahans fully abreast of the situation," he added.

Discussions have also begun with firms to fill gaps in the association's coverage. Shaunak concluded: "It's early stages, but [deals] are likely to happen in 2013."

Why budgeting fails: One management system is not enough

In this paper, Professor Peter Horvath and Dr Ralf Sauter present what's wrong with the current approach to budgeting and how to fix it.
