Lancashire accountants taken over

Baldwins, one of the UK’s fastest growing accountancy practices, is further expanding in the North West following its successful move into the region last year.

Leading chartered accountants and business advisers Cassons, which has offices on St Crispin Way, Haslingden, Rossendale and on Bridge Street, Manchester has joined forces with the Baldwins Accountancy Group.

Baldwins, a CogitalGroup company, is one of the UK’s leading business services groups. Currently, CogitalGroup has 4,700 people operating from 150 offices in seven countries, with revenue in excess of £320 million.

Cassons, which has become the landmark 60th office within the Baldwins Accountancy Group, services around 3,000 clients located across East Lancashire and further afield.

Les Nutter, Managing Partner at Cassons, said joining Baldwins will enable the business to continue to grow and develop as it has done throughout its history.

He said: “We are very positive about joining the Baldwin Group as we are totally committed to our shared ethos of developing relationships with local businesses in local communities, and providing the best level of service through local people.

“Our own personality and values will remain the same.

“We have advised many clients throughout the generations who have grown and developed with the help and support we have given them, and of course through our active participation in BKR International we will continue to advise clients as they expand and trade overseas.

“By joining Baldwins, our clients will be able to access the group’s various national teams of technical and sector specialists including banking & finance which will help our clients in the North West to strengthen and expand.

“The support and investment from Baldwins will mean that we can provide extra services and give added value to our clients particularly in terms of technology.

“The investment will also mean that our people will have access to even better learning and development opportunities which will further enhance the programmes that we already have in place.

“We are looking forward to 2018 full of confidence.”

Shaun Knight, director at Baldwins Accountancy Group, said this was a great opportunity to invest further in the North West following the successful acquisition of CLB Coopers in November 2016.

“We are always looking at areas where we can expand and Cassons has built an impressive and varied client base,” he said.

“We are looking forward to working with Cassons to help the business and their clients identify growth opportunities moving forward.

“Since we moved into the North West last November, CLB Coopers has grown at a significant rate and we are confident 2018 will be another exciting year.”
