Merger creates £10m accountancy force

The merger between Moore and Smalley and Lonsdale & Partners creates a £10m accountancy force

A £10m accountancy business has been created following the merger between
Blackpool-based
Moore and
Smalley
and Lonsdale & Partners, which will break into the top 50
bracket of the UK’s biggest accountancy firms.

Moore and Smalley, which also operates offices in Preston and Castle
Donington, and Kirby Lonsdale-based Lonsdale & Partners, which has
additional offices in Lancaster and Kendal, have agreed to join forces, The
Preston Citizen
reports.

The new business, trading as Moore and Smalley, will be one of the region’s
biggest independent firms of accountants and business advisors, forecasting its
combined forces of 19 partners and 200 staff to generate an income of £10m a
year.

David Ingram, Moore and Smalley managing partner, said North Lancashire and
South Cumbria had traditionally been strong markets for Moore and Smalley. ‘We
wanted to find a strategic partner which will allow the Moore and Smalley brand
to grow. The culture of both businesses, and client demographics, are very
similar making it an ideal fit,’ he said.
