Accountancy and business advisory firm Nicklin has acquired accountancy Henn & Westwood, adding the firm’s staff, spread over two offices, and services to its own. Nicklin, which has an active acquisition strategy, notes that Henn & Westwood’s services match and complement its own offering perfectly.
Henn & Westwood is a West Midlands based firm of Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors that offers its clients management accounts and advice, accounting and auditing, business tax, personal tax and computerised bookkeeping and payroll services. The firm has offices in Wolverhampton and Halesowen.
Founded in 1931, Nicklin is an accountancy and business advisory firm that provides financial and accountancy advice to owner managed businesses, including on audit and assurance, bookkeeping, management services, tax mitigation, wealth management and business development. The firm has 50 advisors working from its office in Halesowen and Worcestershire.
To boost its position as a leading firm of accountants and business advisers in the Black Country, Nicklin decided to acquire Henn & Westwood. According to the firm, Henn & Westwood’s services perfectly complement its own services to commercial and private clients.
Led by Managing Partner Harvey Owen, Nicklin maintains an active acquisition strategy, and is continuously on the look-out for practices that complement its own offering, examples include Rubery-based Lowe McTernan in 2012 and Woodall Davies Bache in 2013. “This is great news and we are all really pleased that the acquisition of Henn & Westwood has gone through successfully. Just like when we acquired Lowe McTernan, all of Henn & Westwood’s staff have been moved into our premises so there are no redundancies,” comments Owen.
