TWO LONG-ESTABLISHED south-west firms have merged.
Street-based Holland & Co will merge into Monahans. David Holland has practiced in the Somerset area for nearly 40 years, and he will bring his team of eight into Monahans’ Glastonbury office.
Stephen Fry, partner in charge of Monahans’ Glastonbury office, said the move created a firm “better able” to provide knowledge and expertise to clients.
Holland said: “We will continue to provide a friendly professional service to all of our clients who will also now be able to benefit from the specialist expertise which Monahans is able to provide.”
Monahans also operates out of office in Bath, Swindon, Chippenham and Trowbridge. Beyond more traditional accounting services, it provides HR, strategy, corporate finance and IFA services.
