Parsons Chartered Accountants has announced that it has merged with Paylings which formed in 1949, as part of its ongoing expansion plans.
The merger took place in August 2021, supported by Leeds law firm Clarion with a team led by Emma Spragg.
Through the new merger, the firm has adopted the Paylings brand alongside its own, and welcomed six team members from the firm into its Wakefield office.
The group now has over 40 employees based across two offices and also working remotely, delivering a range of accounting, audit, tax, corporate finance and advisory services to a growing Yorkshire and national client base.
In addition, David Harrison, the former managing partner of Paylings, will remain in a consultative capacity for the foreseeable future.
Ian Parsons, managing partner, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed colleagues and clients from Paylings.
“The expansion of our team gives us additional capacity and skills, particularly in the area of Financial Audit, needed to maintain our excellent quality of client service for existing and new clients whilst we continue to grow.”
Harrison added: “Parsons is a secure and safe guardian for the clients we have serviced, in some cases for many years.
“I am confident that they will continue to receive an excellent level of service along with the benefits of a larger and incredibly dedicated team which offers a broader range of services including specialist in-house expertise in corporate finance and tax advisory.”
