Blackburn and Bury-based PM+M, the chartered accountancy, business advisory and financial planning group, has acquired the Accrington office of Haworths Chartered Accountants. The value of the deal has not been disclosed.

This follows the firm’s recent appointment of Roger Phillips as Tax Director.

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. Mark Schofield, his director colleague, will be there for the transition period and assist with client introductions before focusing on managing the Haworths Settle office.

Paul Spencer commented: “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.

Paul added: “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 an exceptional client service.”

Jane Parry – managing partner at PM+M – said: “Haworths has an enviable reputation, so we are delighted to welcome the team and their clients to PM+M.

“We have known the directors of Haworths for many years and we see real synergies between the two firms as we share a client-focused approach, have similar cultures, shared values, and a range of complementary services. I’m confident this deal will add value and will help us to continue investing in and growing our East Lancashire presence.
