LB Group Chartered Accountants & Chartered Tax Advisers has acquired the nationally placed specialist tax practice of Butterworths.
LB Group, which has offices in Ipswich, Colchester, Chelmsford and London, offers accountancy, audit and tax solutions along with other advisory services including corporate finance, Insolvency, financial and mortgage solutions.
Group Director Chris Annis said: “We are delighted to welcome the Butterworths business into LB Group. We feel their culture and ethos to client service and value is closely aligned to our own, and we look forward to integrating their team and clients into our business going forward.”
Resulting from this acquisition, Butterworths clients and the Butterworths team will join LB Group. Clients will be overseen by Chris Annis, Tom Butterworth and the enhanced team and will be serviced from the LB Group Ipswich office at Suffolk House, 7 Hydra, Orion Court, Addison Way, Great Blakenham, Ipswich IP6 0LW.
Former Butterworths Director, Tom Butterworth, who will be retained as part of the new business too, said: “LB Group is made up of energetic like-minded specialists to those team members at Butterworths who have supported our clients for the last decade.
“It will be business as usual and the team at LB Group will continue to provide the same level of service that our clients have enjoyed in the past. More importantly, LB Group has the capacity to advise clients in a number of fields that we, because of our size, have not been able to previously offer.
“Such additional services will be of a huge benefit to the Butterworths clients for the next stage of their business journey. Within LB Group our clients will now have access to specialist tax advisers, accountants, corporate finance advisers, mortgage lending and wealth management specialists and all with a significant presence in central hubs around the south of England.”
