South West accountacy firms announce merger

Anthony Smith and Della Hudson

Two South West accountancy firms have merged to offer a wider range of services to hundreds of clients across the region.

Anthony Smith and Co has joined forces with Hudson Business Accountants and Advisers in Nailsea to combine their expertise.

The merged firm now has 15 staff, including two partners, and will also have an office in Taunton and a base in Mayfield Avenue, Worle.

Anthony Smith, managing director of the combined firm, said clients would benefit from the extra resources.

He said: “There will be no changes for our clients on a practical level, as they will continue to work with the same team as before and enjoy the personal touch.

“But they will now have access to a bigger team, with a range of expertise. We can support anyone from the one-man band to multi-million pound corporations.”

Smith is a Fellow with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (FCMA), which reflects his credentials and commitment to the profession.


Della Hudson, a Chartered Accountant with over 20 years’ experience, will continue in a consultancy role. She is also working on a book to help people to grow their business, using real life practical examples and some theory.

Hudson said: “Anthony and his team will enhance our business advice services with their qualifications and his industry experience. I will be around in a consultancy role and I’m also looking forward to working on my long-awaited business book.”

The team can visit clients at their premises and currently serve people in Somerset, Bristol, Gloucestershire, Devon and Dorset.
