Gorseinon-based accountants, Fergusons, have expanded their practice into Pontardawe through the integration of an existing firm, Harvey, Peters & Company, so creating Ferguson Peters.
All staff at the Pontardawe practice will retain their jobs, and the current acting partner, Peters will remain in post for the short term to assist in the transition.
Directors, Tracey Jones and Dean Beniamous, took over the Fergusons back in 2010. Since then, the practice has gone from strength to strength, increasing client numbers, offering support to niche markets and investing in the most modern accountant techniques and software, including products such as Xero.
Both practices are based in each of the town’s respective High Streets and the directors believe this gives them a huge advantage, being able to provide a truly local service to local people.
Commenting on the integration, Tracey says, “Dean and I have been looking at opportunities for expansion for a number of years, but up until now, couldn’t find the right match. Harvey, Peters & Company already operates in a similar way to Fergusons and they have a very experienced and competent team in place. What’s more, we were keen to expand to an area where, like from our Gorseinon branch, clients feel they are getting a genuinely local and personalised service.
“The integration will be as seamless as possible and it will business and usual for the existing clients from both practices.”
