Strengthening the network

TOP 20 UK accounting and business advisory firm Kingston Smith LLP has joined Moore Stephens International, one of the world’s leading global accounting and advisory networks.

With six offices in and around London, including in the City and the West End, Kingston Smith becomes the main London-based firm of the Moore Stephens International network. The firm joins a strong Moore Stephens UK organisation and a global professional network of more than 260 firms in 112 countries.

Nick Bairstow, Managing Partner of Moore Stephens East Midlands said: “There’s been a lot in the press recently about Moore Stephens merging with BDO, but in fact, it was only one Moore Stephens UK member firm, the London and Birmingham-based Moore Stephens LLP, involved in the merger. The remainder of the UK Moore Stephens firms were unaffected.

“It’s a testament to the strength of the Moore Stephens International network that within a couple of months of the LLP leaving the network, we’ve been able to welcome a firm as prestigious as Kingston Smith on board. We’re looking forward to working with them closely.”

Welcoming Kingston Smith as a member firm, Anton Colella, Global CEO of Moore Stephens International, said: “I am delighted to welcome Kingston Smith to our network. They are a firm with a justifiably strong reputation not only in London – one of the world’s main capital markets – but also internationally. Their demonstrable strength in sectors such as financial services and media, will complement our network’s existing capabilities. Beyond the firm’s expertise, they share the same outlook and purpose as the existing Moore Stephens professional community: the belief that serving clients is much more than simply a job, but a human relationship where advice and judgement should endure through good times and times of challenge. I look forward to their contribution to our global network’s continued growth.”

Maureen Penfold, Managing Partner, Kingston Smith, said: “Joining Moore Stephens International is a natural next step for us in supporting our clients to reach their potential for international expansion. Being a part of this powerful global network will bring considerable benefits to our clients, enabling us to offer a fully integrated service to support their growth consistently across the world. We are equally excited about the new opportunities it will bring to our people, as we will be able to offer enhanced global mobility and greater collaborative knowledge sharing on an international scale.”

Moore Stephens offers a complete service for both business and individuals including self-assessment tax returns, Inheritance Tax planning, a full payroll bureau, audit and accounting, tax planning advice, accounting software support and much more from offices locally in Corby, Northampton and Peterborough.
