CHARTERED accountants Grant Thornton is creating a new regional structure in East Anglia, bringing together the expertise and services offered by its teams based in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Norwich and Cambridge.

Grant Thornton East Anglia will have 270 members of staff across the four locations and aims to become a “one stop shop” for financial advisory servicees.

Suffolk partner Richard Chaplin, who heads the audit and assurance operation in Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds, said: “We have always been able to tap in to the expertise of our other offices, but this greater affiliation means the integration will be stronger and the access simpler.

“For example, here in Ipswich and Bury we will now be better able to access the particular expertise of our Cambridge-based lead advisory, transaction support and recovery teams.

Nigel Savory, office managing partner of Grant Thornton East Anglia, added: “This restructure is a natural progression for the firm. As well as reflecting the natural culture of the region, we have a stronger more cohesive unit, from which we can pull together teams highly tailored to the specific needs of each client.

In particular we are intending to grow our VAT and specialist tax and employment solutions teams to meet demand.”
