Blackburn and Bury-based PM+M has acquired the Accrington office of Haworths Chartered Accountants for an undisclosed sum.
It revealed the Haworths team will continue to be located at the Old Tannery in Accrington for the time being, with the intention to relocate to PM+M’s head office at New Century House on Greenbank Technology Park, Blackburn, in March next year.
Paul Spencer, who is a director at Haworths, will be joining PM+M as a partner, with Mark Schofield, his director colleague, to assist with client introductions before focusing on managing the Haworths Settle office.
Spencer said: “PM+M is a highly regarded name in the North West and offers a range of services to its clients which encompass and strengthen our own, as well as providing additional expertise in areas such as tax advisory, research and development tax credits, and corporate finance.”
“Our hope is that joining PM+M will mean greater things for us and our clients. The increased resources, along with PM+M’s commitment to quality and people development, will ensure that we can continue to provide exceptional client service.”
Jane Parry, managing partner at PM+M, added: “I’m confident this deal will add value and will help us to continue investing in and growing our East Lancashire presence.”
