Two of Fenland’s oldest independent accounting practices will merge at the beginning of next month.

Turner & Partners, of The Crescent, Wisbech, is teaming up with Whiting & Partners, also of The Crescent.

The merged firm will operate under the Whiting & Partners banner from February 1.

In a joint statement Paul Rose, proprietor of Turner & Partners, and Chris Morton, of Whiting & Partners, said: “The merger is a positive step towards consolidating our presence in this area.

“It is a natural link up as we have been working closely together over a number of years.

“Our over-riding aim is to strengthen our services to our respective clients and add innovative new lines of advisory services to the

Fenland business community.”

Whiting & Partners was founded under the name Larking, Larking & Whiting by father and son Roland and Charles Larking merging practices with Walter Whiting in 1928.

They began by trading from offices in Wisbech, March and Bury St. Edmunds.
