Tait Walker reveals Durham expansion

Tait Walker has announced the opening of a new base in Durham, the independent accountancy firm’s fourth office in the region.

With already established sites in Newcastle, Morpeth and Teesside, the business employs 155 region-wide.

The firm’s latest office, situated at Salvus House in Aykley Heads, will provide expertise in the manufacturing, construction and tech sectors in particular to the local area.

Heading up the company expansion is associate partner, Paul Shields, who will be supported by Michael Smith, the corporate finance team and other tax and wealth management specialists.

Tait Walker has completed a wealth of corporate deals in Durham, including the Middlesbrough College acquisition of Durham-based NECC Training, the management buy-out of Tanfield Engineering in Consett, the acquisition of Blacks Autos in Darlington to Vertu Motors and management buy-out of JDP Contracting Services in Newton Aycliffe, to name a few.

Paul Shields, associate partner at Tait Walker, said:“ We have been working with clients across Durham for many years, and continue to grow our offering in this area, especially in corporate finance and specialist tax.

“With the launch of new funds in the area, including the £20m Finance Durham Fund, it’s an exciting time for local businesses and an ideal time for Tait Walker to have a new Durham home.

“Our office is there to support our existing clients and to help businesses in County Durham to grow and succeed. Our experience can help companies to access funding and support and we are looking forward to meeting more ambitious business owners across County Durham.”

Andrew Moorby, managing partner at Tait Walker, said: “It’s a great opportunity for Paul and the team to build on our existing Durham client base.

“We work with some excellent County Durham businesses and this office opening is hopefully going to make us even more accessible and let local businesses know we are there to support them with every business stage.”
