Crowe acquires technology-focused firm

Crowe in the UK has acquired Accounting for Entrepreneurs, a Gloucestershire based firm focusing on entrepreneurs.

The firm has taken on the client portfolio and work in progress of Accounting for Entrepreneurs from boutique accounting practise Tayabali Tomlin.

Crowe is offering Accounting for Entrepreneurs’ services from its Cheltenham office, providing a secure, cloud-based, streamline software solution for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). A team of five has been moved from the Cheltenham office to try and ensure a seamless transfer.

Crowe’s Cheltenham office managing partner Guy Biggin said: “We have acquired Accounting for Entrepreneurs as part of our commitment to entrepreneurial business and to boost our service offering to small and medium sized businesses. For clients, it will mean increased support and resources to better serve their current and future needs.

“This deal represents a further investment by Crowe in technology and advisory solutions to meet client needs in a changing regulatory environment.”

Biggin added that the firm will continue to work with the business’s former owner Aynsley Damery to embed the new services.

Damery commented: “In a sense we took our own advice. Our business had matured to the point where it was neither big nor small. We needed to take the next step.”

Crowe’s CEO Nigel Bostock said: “In an increasingly entrepreneurial and global economy, clients and businesses expect and require support which is highly-innovative, highly-mobile and highly-digital. Many recognise that as the business environment changes, they need flexible services which help them to achieve their ambitions.”
