Cowgill Holloway announce merger with Warings

Leading North West Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors, Cowgill Holloway LLP has announced a merger with Bolton-based, Warings Business Advisers LLP, to further increase its offering to the region’s businesses.

The merger, which completed on Friday 21 October, will create a combined group with 15 partners. The deal sees Warings’ Senior Partner, Patrick Lydon and Tax Partner, Helen Chambers appointed Partners of Cowgill Holloway, with Ray Darby and Nicola Roby becoming Directors of CHW Small Business Accounting, a soon–to-be-launched specialised small business centre, based at Warings’ offices in Bedford House on Chorley New Road.

CHW Small Business Accounting will see Warings’ team and Cowgill Holloway’s small business team combine to provide accounting solutions to small businesses around the region, providing bookkeeping, accounting, management information and payroll services, allowing business owners to focus on running their business, rather than spending time managing the financial books and records. The business will be based from Warings’ existing office at Bedford House, Chorley New Road.

Patrick Lydon commented: “The deal represents long-term security for the clients and staff of Warings, and gives us access to the wider range of services available at Cowgill Holloway. We look forward to joining one of the most successful firm of accountants and business advisors in the region.”

Cowgill Holloway’s Managing Partner, Paul Stansfield added: “We are delighted to bring a quality business like Warings into the Cowgill Holloway Group. The firm`s history and position in the market place represents a significant boost to our business and strengthens our proposition to our growing client base.

“By creating CHW Small Business Accounting, it allows us to further amplify our offering to owner managed businesses and SMEs around Bolton. We look forward to growing this area of the business through the clever use of software and existing resources that CHW Small Business Accounting can utilise.”

The merger increases the Cowgill Holloway Group to 150 staff across five offices, providing a full service offering to businesses small and large alike.
