05 Jul Acquisition For Leading Firm of Cross Border Accountants
Chartered accountants Douglas Home & Co is pleased to announce that as of 9th September 2016, it has taken over responsibility for the clients and staff of the firm of Stark Main & Co, based in Selkirk.
Following the tragic passing of Jim Stark and his own health challenges, Ian Main has decided to reduce his workload and concentrate on his specialised dental clientele. As a consequence he left the business on the date of transfer.
With branches in Haddington, Kelso, Hawick, Alnwick and Melrose, Douglas Home & Co are further cementing their reputation as one of the area’s leading accountants.
Douglas Home & Co was established over 30 years ago and the practice has gone from strength to strength over the years and offers all aspects of accountancy and taxation from compliance tax; bookkeeping; payroll; specialist tax planning and IT to the more recently added wills and estates and raising finance.
The core team at Stark Main & Co including John Dunney will continue to provide the high quality service clients have come to expect.
“It was very sad news about Jim Stark and we are pleased to be able to step in and secure the jobs of the staff at Stark Main for the future. This is a good match with our existing team and will help us to continue to grow and improve our business” – explained Alan Drummond, the firm’s managing director.
