TC Group has merged with accountancy firm Sykes, Dalby & Truelove Ltd (SDTL) in a move set to expand the firm’s presence in West Sussex
The chartered accountancy firm, SDTL, aims to help businesses become more profitable and has worked for a varied range of clients ranging from sole traders and partnerships to international trading companies, providing solutions to day-to-day accounting and tax issues.
The acquisition firm has eight staff and they will be joining the TC Group which currently has 106 employees across offices in London, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Thames Valley, Farnham, West Bristol, East Midlands, Croydon, West Sussex, North Essex, Chippenham, East Yorkshire and St Albans.
The TC Group is currently undergoing rapid growth having announced five recent mergers with the firms: Sence Accounting, Berley Chartered Accountants, Tax Angel Accounting and The Company Books this year.
The TC Group offers a range of accounting and tax services along with legal advice to both businesses and the public. It recently became the first UK accountancy firm to offer a full range of investment, mortgage, legal and HR advice.
Tony Dalby, owner of SDTL, said: ‘It is with great pleasure that I can say SDTL is joining forces with TC Group. SDTL aims to enable clients to have a better work/life balance through our support, innovation and training to meet their accountancy needs. A business ethos which TC shares.’
Chris Checkley, a partner at TC, said: ‘SDTL is a well-respected accountancy practice with a loyal client base. This loyalty has been built on Tony and his team’s commitment to building long-lasting relationships and providing a first-class service. Joining forces with SDTL will significantly boost TC’s presence in West Sussex.’
