BAKER TILLY has completed a merger with Aberdeen-based accountants Simpson Forsyth.
Established in Aberdeen in 1990 by Andrew Forsyth, Simpson Forsyth provides business and professional services to a wide range of companies, partnerships and individuals from its offices in Queen’s Road. The firm, which has three partners and 30 staff, currently has a turnover of around £3m.
The merger adds Aberdeen to the firm’s Scottish presence, with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Grangemouth, and Lerwick.
Robert Ross, Baker Tilly managing partner in Scotland said: “We have made no secret of our intention to enter the market in Aberdeen given its importance to Scotland’s economy and the increasing demand for our services in the area. Simpson Forsyth is a fantastic firm with great people who are highly respected in the Aberdeen market, and the merger provides us with the perfect platform for further growth.”
Andrew Forsyth, founding partner of Simpson Forsyth said: “At Simpson Forsyth we have been providing clients with a wide range of accounting, audit and tax services, always with a focus on excellent client care. Our merger with Baker Tilly will enable us to maintain this ethos and take this proposition to another level for the benefit of our clients.”
