We are pleased to announce that we have completed the purchase of King’s Lynn accountancy practice, 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 our ambitious growth strategy, but more than that, it enables us to grow our King’s Lynn team and be better resourced overall as a firm, thereby allowing us to deliver an improved service to clients.
Burrells has built its considerable reputation primarily through its specialist tax advisory services. The acquisition means that we can now incorporate this expertise into our own service offering, giving us a further edge over our competitors.
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, this knowledge and experience will prove invaluable to us as a firm, and to our clients.
Aston Shaw Director, Dominic Shaw, 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 our newly renovated office on King Street where they will be welcomed by our friendly team.
