Azets welcomes market-leading firm in Poole

Azets has acquired award-winning business and tax advisory firm Inspire Accountants, a local independent firm based in Poole. The acquisition strengthens Azets’ established presence on the South Coast.

We are delighted to welcome a new office and business into the Azets family with the acquisition of Inspire Accountants - an award-winning independent business and tax advisory firm based in Poole - our second acquisition in three months, as we continue to deliver on our ambitious growth plans for the UK.

Inspire was established in 2004 and has an established market presence with nearly 1,000 clients.  Its 30 employees, including three Partners, provide services across Bournemouth, Poole and the wider Solent region.

The acquisition takes Azets’ regional network to 86 offices across the UK and extends our service offering in the local markets around the Solent. As a niche practice specialising in providing      strategic and technical advice to entrepreneurial and growing businesses, the team also provide an on call Financial Director service, known as FD on Demand, which provides clients with the experience and expertise of a full-time FD for the times when they need it at a fraction of the cost.

Adam Wilson, Regional Managing Partner, Solent Region at Azets, said:

“We’re excited to welcome Inspire to the Azets family; Inspire has a reputation for high-quality people providing high-quality client service and this ethos fits perfectly with our own.

“The business is established among the leading accounting and business advisory firms across the Bournemouth, Poole and wider Solent area, and we look forward to supplementing the team’s offering with access to specialist technical, industry and advisory capability.

Warren Munson, Founder and Managing Director of Inspire Accountants, said:

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our business and our clients, and the acquisition demonstrates our commitment to the continued growth of our business, as we enter the next phase of our long and successful journey as part of the UK’s newest Top 10 accounting firm. Azets is a business which shares our clear focus on people and clients – it is the perfect fit both strategically and culturally.

“We have a hard-earned reputation for delivering service excellence to businesses across Bournemouth, Poole and the wider Solent region. As part of Azets, our existing and new SME clients will benefit from an even broader set of specialist expertise, as they continue to drive forward the UK’s economic recovery.”
