Hampshire accountants, tax and business advisers Smith Newmans has undergone significant expansion after merging with long-established Andover business, Carole Judd Chartered Accountant.
The Andover practice, run by Carole Taylor, has been operating for more than 25 years in the town, providing a tax and accountancy service to a 150 plus client base, ranging from limited companies and partnerships through to sole traders and personal tax clients.
Carole’s wealth of experience, particularly in small business, is a perfect addition to the Smith Newmans’ brand. Her expertise further strengthens the company’s position as a leading accountancy and business advice service for small and owner-managed businesses across Hampshire and beyond.
Smith Newmans prides itself in offering a professional, personalised service to its hundreds of clients, who it regards as business partners and not just companies on its books.
The company’s main office is in Colden Common just outside of Winchester and there is now an office in Andover.
Speaking about the expansion, Director of Smith Newmans, Nigel Newman said:
“This is such an exciting time for our business. I’m delighted to be working with Carole and combining our many years of financial and commercial experience to also help businesses in the north of the county grow and succeed.
“Andover is a town that is very close to my heart. I was born in the town, grew up there and have worked there in the past. I am looking forward to being involved in the local business community once again and working with businesses in the town.”
Carole Taylor added:
“I’m very proud to have represented the Andover business community for the past 25 years and to have worked closely with my clients to really understand their needs and provide them with tailored advice.
“Continuing to offer this personalised service to my clients is really important to me, and now, as part of the Smith Newmans team, I’ll be able to offer them a wider range of services, such as business and cloud software advice, especially with Making Tax Digital rapidly approaching. It will also enable us to help more businesses of all sizes in the town.”
