Benchmark International is pleased to announce the merger between North East Lincolnshire chartered accountants Blow Abbott and A P Robinson & Co.
Established in 1967, Blow Abbott is a ICAEW chartered accountancy practice and payroll service provider for SMEs, providing a turnkey service including final and management accounts, and cloud accounting software management.
A P Robinson & Co is a well-established firm of chartered accountants and business advisers providing accountancy, taxation and business advisory services to a wide range of business and private clients across Lincolnshire and Yorkshire.
The new firm is expected to be at the forefront of technological progress and offer clients an ever-broader portfolio of services to support, guide and grow their business and profit.
Elliot Beaumont, Director at Blow Abbott, said: “We are so excited to join with A P Robinson & Co. My Grandfather, Denis Blow, established this firm over 50 years ago. This merger will take it into the next chapter. As the finance industry implements ever more streamlined systems, technological advancements and opportunities to support client business, our new organisation will be future proofed and ready to seize every opportunity.”
Andrew Robinson, Managing Partner at A P Robinson & Co, said: “I undertook my post-qualification training as a young accountant with Blow Abbott and established my company retaining many of the principles and ethics taught to me there. In particular, lessons in client service, embracing positive change, and valuing personnel have stayed with me throughout the first 25 years of A P Robinson & Co. You can only imagine therefore, my pride and delight as we unite these two great firms, exceptional employees and valued regional and national clients.”
