Crawfords to join RPG Chartered Accountants

Published on February 5, 2021 by Crawfords Accounting

We are very pleased to let you know that we have signed an agreement which means that Crawfords Chartered Accountants will be joining Royce Peeling Green Chartered Accountants (RPG).  The deal is due to complete on Wednesday 31st March 2021 and the new firm will be known as Royce Peeling Green incorporating Crawfords.

We have known and respected the partners of RPG for many years and we can all see the perfect fit between the two firms.  Crawfords and RPG share the client-centric approach and both firms will bring a number of service specialisms.

All of Crawfords’ partners will move to RPG and Crawfords’ partner Daniel Prais will join the RPG Group Board as well as becoming a Director of RPG Chartered Accountants.

Tony Wacks, who sadly passed away just before New Year, was fully involved in the discussions and had been very keen for the deal to be concluded.  It is very sad that he will not join us.

The amalgamation gives us the springboard to strengthen and further develop our position in Manchester and further afield. We are already looking to expand both our combined business services and specialist tax teams.

Crawfords insolvency team including David Kaye, Alex Kachani and Tony Chan will bolster RPG’s strength in this area and a further insolvency practitioner has already been recruited who will join in us March.

Operations will be centralised at RPG’s offices at the Copper Room in the Deva City Office Park, Manchester, which is a short walk from our existing offices, where there are excellent meeting and parking facilities.  In fact we were based at the Deva City Office Centre for three years prior to moving to our current office.

The management teams of both firms are very positive about the potential for the firm going forward and the expansion of the service that we will be able to provide for our clients.

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.

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.

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.
