Kingscott Dix and Guilfoyle Sage Gloucester to become a five-director practice

TWO GLOUCESTERSHIRE FIRMS have merged, in an attempt to boost their business.

Kingscott Dix (KD), with offices in Gloucester and Cheltenham, will join forces with Guilfoyle Sage Gloucester, creating a team of 50 staff.

Guilfoyle’s staff will move into KD’s Quedgeley office, with its managing partner Mark Spashett becoming one of five directors.

KD is by far the older firm, formed in 1921, and specialises in family-owned enterprises and OMBs. Guilfoyle was set up in 1988, covering a range of accountancy services.

Steve Baily, director of KD said: “Guilfoyle Sage Gloucester have a very experienced team and a loyal, long-standing client base that will complement our existing set-up perfectly. This really is a situation where we’re expecting two plus two to equal five.”

Spashett said: “We can see huge potential value for our clients by being able to utilise the wealth of specialist expertise that KD has built up over the years in such areas as tax planning, strategic consultancy and corporate finance.”
