Latest office opening adds up for expanding accountancy practice

Parsons Chartered Accountants has opened a new practice in York, to offer accountancy and tax planning services to clients based in the city and its surrounding regional area.

The firm has experienced substantial growth since 2020, doubling its employee headcount to more than 50 to support its client base.

And the business has extended its service portfolio with the addition of Audit and Tax Advisory to welcome new clients.

Its York office, in Gateway 1 at Holgate Business Park, joins two other bases located in Denby Dale and Wakefield.

The newly refurbished York practice is managed by Mark Stanton, director and head of York, and Rebecca Davison, director and head of tax. They share over 40 years of combined experience in top 10 firms and latterly as partners at an independent practice.

Managing partner and head of corporate finance, Ian Parsons, said: “Our shared ambition to adapt and succeed, and our dedication to outstanding client service makes us a great team.

“The York offer will mirror ours in terms of Mark and Rebecca’s commitment to clear and trustworthy guidance for their clients, and their high regard for technical and ethical excellence.”

Davison said: “We have already recruited some excellent talent and, as we are on a growth trajectory, we are continually looking for exceptional individuals who share our values and our passion for top-class client service.

“I am very much looking forward to working with business owners in the York region, providing them with tax and business growth expertise to assist them throughout the lifecycle of their businesses.’’

Stanton added: “We are excited to be working with Parsons to achieve our long-upheld aspiration of leading our own practice.

“Working in collaboration with Parsons allows us to offer a more diverse suite of services which matches the portfolio offered by the UK’s top 10 accountancy firms.”
