MHA Carpenter Box, the award-winning accountancy, tax and wealth management practice has announced the opening of a new Brighton office in Ship Street in the south lanes area of the city. The opening of the latest addition to the firm’s two existing offices coincides with the launch of their new branding, so it will be an exciting time for the Gatwick and Worthing based firm.
Managing Partner, Alan Edwards commented: “Our new office and new look mark an important phase in the development of the firm. With a headcount of around 170 and a client care strategy that matches our new “Now, for tomorrow” tagline, we aim to deliver the kind of business advice that our clients need to help them on their business and personal journeys. Our new presence in Brighton is aimed at making conversations easier as we embed ourselves into the local business landscape and start to build new relationships.”
The office will be led by Partner elect Sam Uwins, who specialises in the digital media sector. He will be joined by a team of experienced tax and wealth management advisers who will help to deploy the firm’s considerable business advisory expertise to existing and new clients across Brighton and Hove. The office will be introducing itself by way of a launch party in May.
In a way, the new office is a homecoming for the MHA Carpenter Box. Robert Carpenter, one of the founding partners, practiced as a Chartered Accountant from Midland Bank Chambers in North Street when the firm came into being in 1924. Ninety-five years later MHA Carpenter Box has become a top 100 firm in its own right. As well as belonging to the national association MHA, the firm is an independent member of Baker Tilly International giving it the resource to help clients locally, nationally and internationally, with a global reach for its clients that stretches across 140 countries.
