It has been 2 ½ years since my last blog and whilst a lot has changed from a business perspective over that time, the last 3 months have definitely been the biggest change I have seen in my lifetime, well since having children anyway!
Following 3 successful local takeovers, in 2018 we took the decision to spread our wings further and set up another branch in Norfolk. We targeted an accountancy firm that would meet these aspirations and ultimately align itself with our current way of working and team that we had in place.
On 1 July 2018, the deal was complete, and we acquired Deardens Accountants and set up a new subsidiary of our group called Gascoynes and Deardens Limited. The firm was based in Long Stratton and all staff together with the previous owner, Gwen Dearden, moved to the new business.
