B-right-on merger for UHY

UHY Hacker Young is strengthening its roots in the Brighton and Hove area with a strategic merger with local accountancy firm, John A Tuffin & Co

The two-partner family practice, run by Roger and Peter Tuffin, in Brighton is moving in and teaming up with UHY’s office in Hove.

Welcoming the Tuffin staff and partners, Richard Simmons, managing partner at the Hove office, said that the merger would benefit both sets of clients.

“The merger gives us a great opportunity to expand the range of services that we will be able to offer our enlarged client base,” he explained.

“John A Tuffin’s clients will benefit from the auditing service offered by us at UHY Hacker Young, while our own clients will now have access to an expanded range of products including will-writing, estate planning and administration.”

He added that in the run-up to the merger, it had quickly become clear that the two firms shared the same values and commitment to best practice.

Peter Tuffin agreed. “The synergies the combined firms will generate will be of great benefit to our clients both current and in the future. I am really looking forward to the opportunities the merger will bring and to the enhanced service our clients will enjoy.”

Both firms are long established in the area. UHY’s Hove office has been around for more than 85 years while John A Tuffin was established some 50 years ago.
