Accountancy firm MHA MacIntyre Hudson to merge with Spain Brothers

MHA MacIntyre Hudson, one of the oldest accountancy firms in the UK and a partner of Locate in Kent, has revealed that they will merge with Spain Brothers, an established firm of chartered accountants.

The Spain Brothers Folkestone-based office will now operate under the MacIntyre Hudson name, with the two partners and 20-strong workforce to continue working from the location.

Since MacIntyre Hudson formed in 1880, the firm has made a name for itself as one of the most established in the industry. The firm is currently sitting 18th in Accountancy Age’s 50+50 survey of the UK’s biggest firms.

Spain Brothers, who established over 100 years ago provide auditing, accounting, personal and business tax advice for clients in the south east, and will merge with MacIntyre Hudson in what they feel will be a positive move.

Spain Brothers partner, Peter Cheney said: “We are excited to be joining MHA MacIntyre Hudson. This union will enable us to provide a greater breadth and depth of services to our current Kent client base.

“Both firms have a similar outlook and are a good cultural fit and we’re confident that we’ll continue to deliver our services to a high level. This merger secures our future for our clients and provides enhanced career and development prospects for our staff.”

Speaking on the merger, MHA MacIntyre Hudson chairman Rakesh Shaunak said: “Kent continues to be an exciting market place and we continue to see it as a growth area. Our Canterbury and Maidstone offices have provided us with a favourable presence in the region for several years.

"With the Spain Brothers Folkestone office, we now have the opportunity to work much more closely with businesses across the county and take advantage of the opportunities on offer.”
