TWO ACCOUNTANCY PRACTICES have merged to create APS Accountancy.
ShennanS and Angell Pinder completed the merger on 1 November, combining their 45 years of experience.
Malcolm Angell, director, Angell Pinder, commented: “Our practices are a great match in terms of business ethos, as we both believe in putting our clients’ needs first and providing clear, well-researched advice and practical assistance. This merger allows us to continue giving our clients the best possible service.”
Both accountancy practices are based north-west of London: ShennanS in Chinnor; and Angell Pinder in Dunstable.
Chris Shennan, senior account manager said: “We are really excited by the opportunities this merger provides both us and our clients. By combining our strengths and expanding our team of highly skilled people we can offer our clients a greater level of expertise and a range of services that will cater for all their accountancy and business needs.’
As a part of the merger, Deborah Garvey is also joining the company, bringing her experience with management accounts and online bookkeeping packages.
The new practice will continue to work out of the existing offices in Chinnor, Aylesbury and Dunstable.
