Cowgill Holloway merges with Warings Business Advisers

A MERGER between Cowgill Holloway and Warings Business Advisors intends to propel the new firm to grow in the North West, the new entity has stated.

The merger completed on 21 October, creates a 15-partner firm to form Cowgill Holloway Group.

Paul Stansfield, managing partner at Cowgill Holloway, said: “We are delighted to bring a quality business like Warings into the Cowgill Holloway Group. The firm’s history and position in the market represents a significant boost and strengthens our growing client base.”

Patrick Lydon, partner, said the deal represented “long-term security” for Warings, and access to a wider range of services through Cowgill Holloway.

Warings and Cowgill Holloway will see their business teams combine in the creation of CHW Small Business Accounting, to provide a range of back-office accounting and payroll services to small businesses in the region. Ray Darby and Nicola Roby will become directors of CHW Small Business Accounting, from a new specialised centre based in the Warings office, which will be launched imminently.

Paul Stansfield added: “By creating CHW Small Business Accounting, it allows us to further amplify our offering around Bolton. We look forward to growing through software and existing resources.”

Bolton-based Warings sees senior partner, Patrick Lydon, and tax partner, Helen Chambers moving across as appointed partners of Cowgill Holloway.

The merger increases the Cowgill Holloway Group to 150 staff across five offices, providing a full service offering to businesses small and large alike.
