Partner Andrew Sinclair said: “We have effected this merger in order to bring together the talents of two growing firms and provide the synergy to take them on to a new level.

“We are committed to providing excellent advice and first class service to our business and personal clients alike.

“We have many clients in the local community, and service businesses small and large across many sectors - including agriculture, the professions, the service sector, the construction industry, manufacturers and retailers.

“As well as general accountancy, audit and tax skills, our 4 partners also have individual specialist skills which enables us to provide clients with a first class individual service as and when required.

“In addition to traditional auditing, accounting and tax services we also provide advice on how to improve and develop your business.
