News: Hart Shaw and Atkin Macredie & Co merge


Hart Shaw and Atkin Macredie & Co, two of the region's leading accountancy firms, have merged.

The merger means the Atkin Macredie & Co team will join Hart Shaw at their offices on the Sheffield Business Park.

Both firms can trace their history back to the late 1800's with Hart Moss Copley & Co in Rotherham merging with Shaw Dunk Styring in Sheffield to become Hart Shaw in 1991, and Macredie & Evans Parker & Co merging with Atkin & Co in Sheffield to become Atkin Macredie & Co in 1975.

Paul Dawson, senior partner at Hart Shaw (pictured signing the contract), said: "The merger is fantastic news for both as it allows two already strong firms in the region to grow to the next level.

"As a firm, Hart Shaw has always sought to invest in staff and resources and the merger allows us to accelerate future investment plans for the benefit of all of our clients.

"Bringing both firms under one roof will ensure all clients receive the partner-led service which we pride ourselves on, whilst providing an opportunity for the Atkin Macredie & Co clients to take advantage of the full range of specialist services offered by Hart Shaw."

The merger sees Sarah Brock join as a partner, adding to the already six strong partner team at Hart Shaw, with Nigel Oates and Paul Boden joining Hart Shaw as consultants.

Sarah Brock, partner at Hart Shaw (pictured signing the contract), said: "It is the right time for us to merge with Hart Shaw. With my fellow Directors at Atkin Macredie & Co coming up to retirement this move provides our client base with security and continuation, as they will still be working with the same people, just under a different banner.

"We have a great fit with Hart Shaw in terms of the type of clients that we service so as far as our clients are concerned it will be business as usual for them. Our clients will benefit from the complete range of services on offer from Hart Shaw. We are bringing our workforce over to Hart Shaw’s offices, which is really set up for additional growth in the future.

"I have been a Partner at Atkin Macredie & Co since 1992 and specialise in working with owner managed businesses of varying sizes across the market sectors. I have the experience which Hart Shaw is looking for so the transition will be smooth."

Hart Shaw is hosting its first Sheffield City Region business club event at the Aston Hotel in Rotherham on October 9. The event, with Reynolds Trade Credit, will focus on Retention of Title clauses.
