Sowerby FRS Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers announces the acquisition of the Goole based firm Jonathan Carter Ltd.

The purchase of the firm was a strategic opportunity to gain extra coverage within the thriving business community of East Yorkshire and combined two firms united by a common business culture. The acquisition was completed on 1 February 2017 following Jonathan Carter’s retirement.

With offices based in Beverley, Hornsea and now Goole, Sowerby FRS’s acquisition aims to cement their position as one of the forerunners of local business advice and support within East Yorkshire’s Chartered Accountancy industry.

Sowerby FRS is a five partner strong business which provides services to a wide range of business sectors and individuals including Agriculture, Healthcare Professionals (GPs, Pharmacies & Pharmacists, Consultants and Vets) retail, manufacturing and construction. Their dedication to personal service, led by the partners, ensures that they build strong personal relationships that help all concerned.

Adrian Allen (FCA) and Richard Skewis (FCCA) will be taking over from Jonathan as the key partner presence at the Goole office and clients can be assured that their affairs are in safe hands.

Adrian Allen said ‘our support for our clients stretches far beyond the essential compliance services. We aim to be business partners, working to ensure the best possible chance of success for them.’

The existing office and communication channels will remain open, with the core Goole staff base remaining unchanged. Clients will see minimal disruption throughout the acquisition process.

This transaction will enhance Sowerby FRS’s ability to operate as an effective and proactive member of Yorkshire’s flourishing business network. Sowerby FRS has a strong association with the local area and this acquisition will greatly contribute to improving their business growth and creating new networking opportunities for existing clients.

Richard Skewis said ‘our main aim remains to help our business clients to achieve their objectives, both professionally and personally, and enhance client profitability.’
