On 8 November, 1979 the practice of W B Pearson & Co was acquired at 640 Stockport Road, Manchester and the practice moved to those premises. Bill Pearson had originally acquired the offices in 1951 and he practiced from there for 30 years until he retired in 1981. We ran a practice at those offices for 9 years until December 1988.

On 26 February, 1981 the practice of G C Balfour and Co (who had traded from the Albany, Liverpool, since 1956) was acquired and we opened our Liverpool branch at those offices.On 10 September, 1982 the practices of R G Roberts and Co and Northern Accountancy in Southport, Merseyside, were acquired and merged into our offices at The Albany in Liverpool.

On 19th October, 1987 the practice of A S Hack and Co in Liverpool was acquired and merged into our offices at The Albany. However this historical building was due for a major refurbishment and so it was that in July 1988, our Liverpool practices moved next door to the Cotton Exchange, Liverpool.

On 22 December, 1988 we acquired the whole ground floor of Hilton House, Lord Street, Stockport, for our Manchester practices and on 14th July, 1994 we incorporated our Liverpool practices into the same building.

On 9th December 1998 the whole practice moved to our present offices, now situated over two floors at 65A Alderley Rd, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 1NZ.
