We are very pleased to announce that Crawfords Chartered Accountants have joined RPG. The deal completed on Wednesday 31st March 2021 and the new firm will be known as Royce Peeling Green incorporating Crawfords.
All of Crawfords’ partners have moved to RPG, with Crawfords partner Daniel Prais becoming a Director of RPG Chartered Accountants as well as joining the RPG Group Board. A small number of Crawfords’ staff members have decided it is time for them to retire but the vast majority are moving with us to RPG. We would like to take the opportunity of thanking Ray Crossan, Jaine Elston and Sally Wright (Sally will continue with us for a short while) for their long and dedicated commitment to Crawfords and wish them happiness in their future retirement.
Since the deal was announced in February, there has been detailed planning on the overall integration of the two businesses including IT and other internal systems. This was to ensure a smooth transition, both for colleagues and clients.
We have received a very warm welcome from RPG since the agreement was announced. Colleagues from both firms have been meeting in a weekly social Zoom call during which there have been “round the screen” discussions on subjects ranging from favourite movies to first cars, followed by the weekly quiz. This has been an ideal ice breaker and introduction for both sets of colleagues.
Operations will be centralised at RPG’s offices at The Copper Room in the Deva City Office Park, Manchester, where there are excellent meeting and parking facilities. The main RPG switchboard number is 0161 608 0000.
All of the services and sector specialisms provided by Crawfords are still very much available through RPG incorporating Crawfords. Please have a browse here on the RPG website, give us a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank all of our highly valued clients look forward to working with you alongside our new colleagues at RPG incorporating Crawfords. We are all very positive for the future growth and development of the firm, and the consequent support we will be able to provide our clients.
With our warmest regards

We have received an excellent service from the team at RPG for well over 20 years. We particularly appreciate RPG's real interest in our company and suggestions for improvements. The service RPG provides goes well beyond what we could expect. The attention to detail and the prompt, professional service the team provides means that we are reassured that should we require urgent or unusual advice, the team will provide it. We would have no hesitation in recommending RPG.
Executive Chairman - SheffProp
I would like to thank RPG for your unbelievable help, assistance and friendship for over 40 years. Nothing has ever been too much trouble. Words alone are insufficient, and I think that the same would apply to my former colleagues and my family who have also come to rely on your advice and guidance.
Founder - Neville Johnson Offices
We have worked with RPG for many years, for good reason. They are not only extremely knowledge but they really take the time to get to know you as customers and also as people. This really makes a difference, as whilst it is of course important that you receive great service, which we do, it’s also essential to work with professionals who you can really trust and who go out of their way to know your business as well as you do, giving ultimate comfort that you are all striving towards the same goals. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
