Haines Watts invests in new Birmingham home

One of the West Midlands’ leading accountancy firms has relocated its Birmingham office to cope with recent expansion and demand from owner managed and family-run businesses. Haines Watts, which saw over 10% growth in the UK’s West Midlands region during the last twelve months, has taken more than 7,000 sq ft of ‘Grade A’ office space. The move allows the firm to accommodate more than 45 staff over two floors, with plenty of room for additional recruitment and the possibility of further acquisitions.

 “2018 was a good year for the business and, following the recent acquisition of Michael Kay & Company, we needed a new Birmingham home that could house the larger team and help us with planning for future growth,” said Darren Holdway, Managing Partner at Haines Watts Birmingham LLP.

 “Our Birmingham practice has grown by 27% in terms of staff numbers and this includes several new and future high-profile appointments that strengthens the senior management and client facing teams.”

Haines Watts is a UK top 15 firm of chartered accountants, advising and supporting over 35,000 owner managed businesses and SMEs across the UK. The firm has more than 60 UK offices and its practices are independent local businesses owned and run by local partners and directors. It is a member of Geneva Group International (GGI).
