ESV Merges with Harveys Chartered Accountants
ESV Accounting and Business Advisors today announced it has merged with Harveys Chartered Accountants to enhance its presence and strengthen its position as the leading accountancy and business advisory firm for independent business owners.
ESV is pleased to be welcoming current Harveys principal, David Robinson, and his staff on Wednesday 1 July 2015. The merged firm will conduct business together as ESV Accounting and Business Advisors at ESV’s current Market Street Sydney office.
The merger has been made in light of the shared business objectives and values of both firms, particularly a common purpose in helping business owners, not-for-profits and high wealth individuals on their journey, as well as a strong commitment to providing a personalized and proactive service to all clients.
“The merger with Harvey’s is a natural fit for ESV as we have a similar business philosophy,” said Kurt Baker, partner at ESV. “We understand the importance of developing a collaborative, long-term relationship with our clients, which is something we share with Harveys. Welcoming David and his team on board will only enhance our ability to provide this sort of personalized service to our clients.”
According to David Robinson of Harveys the merger is both timely and beneficial to clients of both firms who will gain from a broader set of professional services and additional expertise of eight partners, as well as the same personal approach and high quality service they currently receive.
“Harveys brings many long-standing clients into this amalgamation, clients we have worked alongside as their businesses have grown, evolved, diversified, reinvented or expanded internationally. Joining a larger firm like ESV that has walked the same path with its clients is a natural progression and one that will only provide upside for our clients and employees,” said Robinson.
“We see that all clients will continue to work closely with the same people ensuring their current and future needs are met,” said Baker. “Our first priority is to ensure a smooth transition for clients across both firms – it will be business as usual.”
Harveys was advised by Greg Quinn of Chase Corporate Advisory. The merger will increase ESV annual revenues by in excess of 20% with continued strong growth of new clients envisaged during the 2016 financial year.
