BEEVER AND STRUTHERS has joined mid-tier international accountancy network HLB International.
The Manchester-based firm was established over 100 years ago, and is now representing HLB in the North West of England.
Beever and Struthers managing partner Phil Roberts said: “We believe there is considerable potential for bringing international transactions to the North West of England and to increase the number of our clients with overseas interests.”
The creation of a structure that allowed Beever and Struthers to carry out more cross-border services was a priority for 2013, and this target has been met by joining up with HLB International
Last week, Roberts told Accountancy Age that “growth will be on the basis of being well thought-out, and strategically important”. The practice calculated that it had carried out 41 pieces of international work across 22 different countries last year.
HLB said it is “delighted” to have appointed Beevers and Struthers: “The firm is the ideal profile for HLB being a well-established regional firm with quality at its core and enhances the geographic coverage available across the UK.”
