I am delighted to announce the acquisition of Geo Little Sebire & Co (GLS).
With effect from 9 September 2020, the clients and employees of Enfield based accounting firm GLS have transferred to Haines Watts and will operate from our premises in Finchley, North London.
This move further solidifies our presence in Greater London and sees the firm continue with our growth strategy and ambition to become the premier business advisers to SME businesses owners in the region.
A shared passion
I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome the team from GLS to the Haines Watts family. Both firms share a passion for supporting aspirational business owners.
Through a combination of wide ranging expertise and a deep understanding of business owners we are able to offer a compelling proposition to both the owners trying to rebuild in the current climate and those who have been able to exploit new opportunities.
Speaking with Gary Cleaver, Managing Partner of GLS, he adds: “we look forward to working with the like-minded team at Haines Watts. Our clients will continue to enjoy the highly personal approach we offer while being able to access a wider range of services that are offered by Haines Watts. This is also an exciting opportunity for our staff who will benefit from the investment Haines Watts has made and the initiatives it offers to develop talent.”
Michael Davidson, Group Managing Partner of Haines Watts adds “the addition of the team and clients from GLS to the Haines Watts family enables us to continue building on our ambition to be the go-to advisors for SME business owners in the UK. As a firm our recent financial results saw us breaking the £100m turnover barrier for FY20. Reaching this mark as we enter our 90th year in business is an achievement and testament our fantastic people and clients.”
Nobody could have predicted what 2020 was to bring, but the investment we have made in our people and our technology made us fit for business, which in turn means we are able to be there for our clients at a time they really need us, which is at the core of our values.”
