THE MANAGING PARTNERS of Deloitte and PwC are among a number of accountants joining the 1,200 business signatories to Remain’s letter urging people to vote ‘in’ for the EU Referendum.
Ian Powell, chairman and senior partner of PwC, is joined by David Sproul, CEO and senior partner Deloitte, stating that British business ‘benefits massively’ from its EU membership.
Other senior practitioners that have signed the letter include Sumit Agarwal, founder and managing partner, DNS Associates, who was shortlisted for Practitioner of the Year in the 2015 British Accountancy Awards and whose firm won the Online Accounting Award in 2013.
Other advisers that have signed include:

- Andeep Mangal, director, Thapers Chartered Accountants
- Joanna Strickland, director, Strickland Accountancy
- Richard Bradley, finance director, Dyer Engineering

The letter outlines that Britain leaving the EU would mean “uncertainty for our firms, less trade with Europe and fewer jobs”.
“Britain remaining in the EU would mean the opposite: more certainty, more trade and more jobs,” the letters states.
