Duncan & Toplis has expanded its reach by opening an office in Loughborough.
The move by the east Midlands chartered accountancy firm follows the acquisition of Marsh & Moss in the town, which will trade as ‘Duncan & Toplis incorporating Marsh & Moss’ from 1 October 2015.
The deal brings the number of offices in the Duncan & Toplis kingdom to 11 and its second office in Leicestershire, alongside Melton Mowbray.
Adrian Reynolds, managing director of the £18.8m firm (Accountancy Age Top 50+50 Survey), said: “The acquisition fits in with our strategic plan as Loughborough has been a target area for us for some time.
“Marsh & Moss is one of the leading accountancy firms in Loughborough, and our acquisition of this well regarded business will create significant opportunities for all of our service offerings. We’re very much looking forward to integrating the Marsh & Moss team and working together to make Duncan & Toplis even stronger than before.”
Marsh & Moss’s three directors and 16 staff will join the firm’s 350-strong employees.
Martin Shannon and Julie Chapman will join Duncan & Toplis as directors while Neil Harris will assist in the transition stage of the handover before retiring.
