Cottons Accountants have announced the acquisition of another Northampton-based accountancy firm, J R Watson & Co, as part of its continued growth plans.
Established over 100 years ago, J R Watson & Co has been providing accountancy and taxation services to small and medium sized business and individuals in the Northamptonshire and Warwickshire areas. The company has been through various stages of growth throughout the years and its rich history is testament to its continuous dedication to clients.
As part of a natural stage in the business lifecycle, the retiring partners are passing the baton to Cottons, along with a fantastic client base and a high-calibre team.
“The team at Cottons have worked hard to ensure the merger for the existing partners has been as seamless as possible, as they transition towards retirement. We are very much looking forward to working with the J R Watson & Co team and clients on this next chapter,”
said Charles Hill, Director at Cottons.
J R Watson & Co has an established client base which has been developed by the existing partners over many years. Its sector expertise is very diverse and a perfect fit for Cottons’ existing portfolio.
“We pride ourselves on our service, and this new merger provides our clients with an opportunity to continue with a long-term partnership, with familiar faces and access to a wider, more modern service offering. We feel our clients are in good hands,”
said Alan Markham, Partner at J R Watson & Co.
All seven J R Watson & Co staff are being retained, a great addition of skills and extensive experience to the Cottons team.
