Morison KSi welcomes UK firm Ormerod Rutter

As first new member for 2020, Droitwich-based Ormerod Rutter will strengthen the association’s UK membership footprint.

Established over 35 years ago, Ormerod Rutter provides auditing and accounting services, along with knowledge of UK and international tax law whilst offering specialist advice on personal and corporate tax as well as wealth planning and protection.

The West Midlands firm provides additional services such as corporate finance, corporate structuring advice, IT software support, company secretarial, VAT and help with research & development tax credits.

Over the past two years, the firm has had the opportunity of working closely with several Morison KSi firms and has found their support invaluable.

Colm McGrory, Managing Partner at Ormerod Rutter, said in the press release: “We are delighted to become members of the Morison KSi global association. Ormerod Rutter has grown to become one of the largest independent accountancy firms in the region and we pride ourselves on the proactive advice and support we offer to our clients.

“As a part of this, we believe it is crucial for our clients to have access to first rate professional support when operating in the global market. Morison KSi will provide our clients with the local knowledge and support they need to maximise the opportunities available from trading internationally.” 

Turpin Barker acquires Gibson Hewitt

Turpin Barker has announced the acquisition of Gibson Hewitt, a firm of Chartered Accountants and Insolvency Practitioners based in West Byfleet, Surrey.

The acquisition strengthens Turpin Barker Armstrong’s position within Surrey and the surrounding regions and will now operate from both offices in Sutton and West Byfleet.

Turpin Barker Armstrong’s Senior Partner Martin Armstrong said in a press release: “After running a successful practice for more than 30 years Gibson Hewitt’s director Lynn Gibson was looking to retire and we saw this as a fantastic opportunity to acquire the business, its premises and staff to expand our current insolvency services.

“The newly merged practice will combine the knowledge and experience within each team and enhance the service offering to clients and introducers at both practices”.

Albert Goodman invests in new Weston-super-Mare premises

The North Somerset Albert Goodman team have invested in new premises on the Weston Gateway Business Park to grow their client base in North Somerset.

The new modern and open-plan offices will provide a great location for the firm’s ambitious growth plans and will create more convenient travel links for clients.

Chris Lewis, Partner at Albert Goodman, commented in a press release: “The new office provides a great working environment which complements our modern approach, whilst making it easier to attract and retain the best possible staff. It will allow us to facilitate further growth by strengthening the firm’s presence in North Somerset and will also provide easier access for our clients.”

Richard Bugler, Managing Partner of Albert Goodman, also added: “This is the second investment we have made in new premises in recent months and we are very excited about the opportunities this will open up for the North Somerset team.”
