Baldwins acquires Evolution

Leading West Midlands accountancy firm Baldwins has completed the acquisition of North East chartered accountants and business advisers Evolution.

The deal will see Evolution, which has offices in Newcastle and Wynyard, become part of the £40m turnover Baldwins Accountancy Group which now boasts over 550 staff.

This move is part of Baldwins’ national strategic expansion plans for 2016, and follows a deal that saw another North East accountancy firm, Rowlands Accountants, join Baldwins earlier this year.

Martin Barber, managing partner at Evolution, said: “This is very much the next chapter in the development of our business.

"Our clients will get access to an even broader range of business advisers and we will be able to connect them to even more potential customers and suppliers across the UK. Our people will also have a broader range of career options to look forward to. 

“We have recently moved into new headquarters in Wynyard and have opened our office in Newcastle. Our growth demonstrates that our approach to advising clients is one they find attractive and that, as entrepreneurs ourselves, we know how to build a successful business.”

Baldwins Accountants is one of the largest, independent accountancy firms in the UK with 27 offices, specialising in accountancy and business advisory services including corporate finance and specialist tax advice to all businesses from start-ups to mature companies, across a broad range of business sectors.
