JWP Creers hits £40m milestone

York-based JWP Creers is celebrating after advising on deals worth a total of more than £40m this year.

The North Yorkshire firm of accountants and business advisors has completed more than 20 deals between the West Midlands and The North East.

This includes sales, acquisitions, mergers, management buy-outs, private equity funding, debt finance and corporate re-structuring, in numerous sectors.

JWP Creers corporate finance team, based at the firm’s York office and led by partner, Tony Farmer, has been expanded to eight staff as a result of the gwoth.

Farmer said: “The growth in economic activity which started in autumn 2013 is continuing on a steady upwards trajectory and there is increasing business confidence in the North leading more people to invest in new ventures or acquire existing ones as part of their growth strategy.

“We are particularly pleased that several of the deals we advised upon were related to property or construction and have involved job creation as funders have re-gained their appetite for these sectors after dropping them during the banking crisis.

“We already have a very healthy deals pipeline for 2016 with transactions with a total value of more than £60m.”

JWP Creers, based at York Science Park and Park Street, Selby, is among York and North Yorkshire’s largest firms of accountants, taxation professionals and business advisers with seven partners and over 80 staff.
