It has recently been announced that top 50 accountancy firm Kreston Reeves is set to merge with the Sussex based firm Spofforths on 1 June 2016. This exciting move will create a firm of more than 50 partners, and more than 450 staff, spread across 10 locations in the south-east. Spofforths already has offices in Worthing, Chichester, Horsham, Brighton and Storrington.

Richard Spofforth, managing partner of Spofforths for the past six years, said: “The merger is being undertaken by both firms from a position of strength, with each bringing skills and experience to the other. It’s going to be an exciting time for all of us: it’s a joint step forward and together we’re going to build a firm for the future that responds to all the changes around us”.

“Our clients will continue to be looked after by the people they have always known. What will change is an increase in the depth and breadth of services we can offer.

“For all the combined partners and staff there will be greater career development, fulfilment and all the other benefits that come from working as part of an ambitious and expanding firm.”
