East-Anglian Accountancy Firm Aston Shaw Announces Purchase of Acclaimed King’s Lynn Practice
Independent, East-Anglian accountancy firm Aston Shaw has announced the purchase of King’s Lynn firm, Burrells. Burrells was first established in 1992 and since then it has gone on to build an enviable reputation in the area.
The acquisition of Burrells is the next step in Aston Shaw’s ambitious growth strategy, claiming it will enable them to grow their King’s Lynn team and be better resourced overall as a firm, ultimately improving the level of service provided to clients.
Burrells has built its considerable reputation primarily through its specialist tax advisory services. The acquisition means that Aston Shaw will incorporate this expertise into their own service offering, giving the firm a further edge over its competitors.
Dominic Shaw, Director of Aston Shaw said: “As a firm, we have only recently started to branch out into West Norfolk, having acquired the equally well-reputed King’s Lynn firm, Kirby & Haslam back in April 2018. Since then, our broad range of services and straight-talking approach to tax and accountancy has proven popular with the local business community.”
“For us to continue to deliver a consistent level of excellence, we need to ensure that we have the capacity and resources to do so; we’re confident the purchase of Burrells will allow us to continue to cater to the needs of West Norfolk businesses.”
Burrells Director, Stephen Burrell, will be joining Aston Shaw as a result of the acquisition. Stephen has been working as a Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) for more than 50 years.
Aston Shaw Director, Mark Noakes, said: “Stephen brings with him a wealth of experience that will no doubt benefit many of our clients both in King’s Lynn and our other office locations. I look forward to welcoming Stephen and his team to the firm.”
All staff from Burrells will move to Aston Shaw’s newly renovated office on King Street.
