Two well established chartered accountants in the county have completed a deal to merge.
The Kent offices of MHA MacIntyre Hudson will merge with Margate-based firm Percy Gore - with staff relocated.
The merger comes hot on the heels of MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s merger with the Kent offices of Haines Watts in December last year.
The move further strengthens the firm’s hold in the region creating a county-wide team of nearly 100 partners and staff operating from offices in Maidstone and Canterbury.
Duncan Cochrane-Dyet, MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s Kent managing partner, said: “Kent is a really exciting marketplace and we continue to see it as a growth area.
"This strategic merger will enable us to grow our specialisms across the region and will provide access to a wider suite of services for Percy Gore clients, and enhanced career and development prospects for all members of the expanding team”.
Andrew Leal, partner at Percy Gore, added: "I am pleased this development will enable us to continue to support our existing clients but now with the significant benefit of the added infrastructure and specialist services that the larger MHA MacIntyre Hudson group can provide."
Percy Gore will relocate to the MHA MacIntyre Hudson offices in New Dover Road, Canterbury.
Merger, acquisition and strategy consultants Foulger Underwood were lead advisors to Percy Gore.
