A DROITWICH-based firm of chartered accountants is expanding its practice to open a new branch in Alcester.

Price Pearson Wheatley, which has been operating in Droitwich Spa since 2000, has acquired a former Tax Assist branch in the Warwickshire town.

John Wheatley said: “We’ve been well established in Droitwich for the last 14 years with myself and Pat [Bunn] as resident partners and, whilst an expansion was something we’ve been open to, we hadn’t found the right business partner to grow with. This is a really exciting opportunity for us to join forces with a respected practitioner and to develop Nick’s existing business through the Price Pearson Wheatley brand.”

Nick Pearson added: “My team and I have a well-established network of clients who have been a really important driver in our business growth. We will continue to provide an excellent level of service which will now be overseen by two additional partners in the form of John and Pat. I’m really looking forward to working with them to develop the business under the Price Pearson Wheatley brand.”
