26th November 2018: Leading Chislehurst firm Bells Accountants have acquired Bexley-based business Pomfrey Accountants.
Bells – owned and managed by local entrepreneur Jo Bell, 32 – has negotiated a deal to add Pomfrey to their stable of businesses, extending Bells’ local reach into Bexley, Dartford, and surrounding towns in Kent and South London, and adding a further 500 clients to their roster.
The Pomfrey purchase follows Bells’ acquisition of Hamilton, Stewart & Co in Kenley, Surrey in early 2017.
“We’re delighted to welcome Pomfrey Accountants to the Bells family” said business owner Jo.
“Not only is this a notable milestone for Bells Accountants, I believe it’s great news for our new clients and colleagues in Bexley, for whom it’s business as usual, but with the added benefit of being backed by a growing accountancy group” she added.
“From the outset, my main aims are ensuring that our clients continue to receive the level of service they are accustomed to and that our new colleagues are welcomed in to our team with open arms - It’s also important that we continue to be a part of the Bexley business community from the office on Bourne Road and we hope to continue the long association with Beths Grammar School,” Jo added.
“We have strong ties with the local communities in Chislehurst and Kenley, and the team at Pomfrey have worked similarly in Bexley, so we really are a natural fit.”
