McMorran Accountancy merger

18th April 2017

We are pleased to announce that McMorran Accountancy has recently successfully completed negotiations with Whiting & Partners, Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers to merge their business activities and will now continue to practice as Whiting & Partners Ltd (incorporating McMorran Accountancy).
Following his retirement, Richard McMorran has decided that it is in the interests of both employees and clients that his firm is acquired by a substantial and very reputable regional firm. This is considered to be the best way of ensuring continuity of service for all concerned.
The practice will continue to operate from the existing premises at Godmanchester and St Neots. These local offices will consolidate the combined firm’s presence of Whiting & Partners in Cambridgeshire where we have existing teams based in Chatteris, Ely, March, Peterborough, Ramsey, St Ives and Wisbech. In addition we also have offices in Kings Lynn, Mildenhall and Bury St Edmunds where the firm’s administration is based. Our staff pride themselves on being able to provide a genuinely local presence whilst still offering the wider range of expertise and support services you would expect from a regional firm.
The managers and staff at both offices will be staying with Whitings; we all aim to make the merger as seamless as possible. Our principal objective is to ensure the continuity of high levels of professional service and competitive fee rates which McMorran Accountancy clients have been accustomed to, but with the added advantage of access to our full range of specialist services, including corporate finance and wealth management.
We are confident the existing managers and staff that clients are used to will also welcome the opportunity to further their careers in a larger organisation whilst continuing to serve the loyal customers. Our combined teams very much look forward to meeting with clients and look forward to the new arrangements bedding down smoothly.
