BPU Chartered Accountants has merged with accountancy practice Roblins, expanding its presence across the south of Wales.
As a result of the merger, BPU will be creating five new job roles over the next three months, including positions for graduate trainees and experienced accountants.
The merger came about after Roblins’ partners, Tony Roblin and Andrew Prankerd, started considering their future plans for the development of the practice.
Huw Palin, director of BPU, said: “We are delighted to welcome Roblins into the BPU family. We’ve known the firm and its partners for some time and we’re proud to be working with them.
“We can offer Roblins’ clients a range of services Roblins did not provide previously, such as pension and investment advice and specialist tax planning services. At the same time they know they will continue to get the quality, personalised service that only an independent accountancy firm can offer.”
Roblin added: “BPU is the perfect fit – they have a similar ethos to us, a very strong reputation, and offer a range of services that we currently don’t, such as their added value advisory services.”
