We announced some very exciting news this month having joined forces with another leading Midlands accountancy firm to boost speciality services offered to businesses across the region.
Midas Accountants, based in Great Wyrley, and Gilbert & Co of Wolverhampton and Telford have merged, creating a 17-strong team whose broad spectrum of knowledge will give clients access to increased expert advice.
The partnership has strengthened both businesses, bringing together two much-respected names in the accounting industry.
While Midas has a wide knowledge of the competitive auditing market, and tax issues for privately owned businesses, Gilbert & Co has built an enviable reputation in the niche market of health sector accountancy, which encompasses medical clients such as doctors’ surgeries and pharmacies.
Combining our skills will give the new-look Midas Accountants the capacity to expand across the region and widen our customer base.
Les Tonks, who set up Midas Accountants in 1995, said: “I’m delighted that our two businesses are now working together.
“Brian Gilbert and his team at Gilbert & Co share the same ethos as us here at Midas, creating a personable and friendly yet professional atmosphere where the client is always our priority.
“Our combined experience spans more than 60 years, and we relish the new opportunities this partnership brings in using that wealth of experience to benefit both existing and new clients.”
Midas Accountants will now operate from two locations, our main office in Great Wyrley and Gilbert & Co’s premises in Telford.
Midas principals, Les Tonks and Annette Dwyer, will continue to head the office at Great Wyrley joined by new director Matt Slater, formerly a partner at Gilbert & Co.
Brian Gilbert will run the Telford office and continue to forge links with businesses in Shropshire and the surrounding areas.
