BK Plus has announced that it has acquired Chapman Nash, an accountancy firm based in Warwickshire, for an undisclosed amount, marking the first purchase for the newly formed group.
The deal will allow the firm to expand its services to businesses north and south of Birmingham, while also allowing Chapman Nash to enhance its offering.
The acquisition comes after the newly formed firm was joined by more than 40 staff within the first three months in response to demand from businesses of all sizes seeking support.
Chapman Nash’s office will be rebranded, with the objective to bring in more staff and clients. In addition Jeremy Chapman, founder of the firm will also form part of BK Plus’ tax team as a chartered tax adviser, assisting with personal, corporate and capital gains tax issues.
Chapman said: “We are pleased to be joining forces with another firm which has a similar philosophy to us in how we look after clients. Joining together with a larger organisation offers new opportunities, while allowing us to keep some autonomy in the Warwickshire office.”
Shaun Knight, co-founder of BK Plus, added: “We are delighted to have agreed the acquisition of Chapman Nash as we enhance our offer to businesses across the Midlands.
“It is fantastic to join forces with such a well-respected firm in our first major acquisition, so soon after launching the business.”
