Employees from Clere’s will join the commercial services team at the Dains Birmingham office on Colmore Row. Staff will be integrated into the team, headed by partner Ian Carter.
Clere’s Accountants in Birmingham has provided a personalised service for owner-managed businesses and individuals since 2003. Dains said the integration is a “strong fit” for the team which serves clients from start-up to a turnover of several million pounds per annum.
Dains managing partner Richard McNeilly said: “We are delighted to announce the acquisition of the trade and assets of Clere’s Limited which builds on our position within the Birmingham marketplace.
“In recent years, our proposition has improved enormously for ambitious business owners, who require advice on everything from cloud accounting to VAT, corporate taxation and growth funding. We look forward to welcoming clients and staff to Dains as we continue to grow in the Midlands.”
In 2018-19, 53 new staff joined Dains and seven graduates were welcomed into the business which has offices in Birmingham, Lichfield, Burton, Derby and Stoke-on-Trent.
