One of the biggest
Founded in 1912, Menzies is one of the leading accountancy firms in the South East and one of the top 20 firms in the UK. Several recent acquisitions have helped to push it into the top 20. In early 2008, Menzies’ Kingston office merged with local firm Carton-Garrigan. The previous year it merged with Callingham Crane, which strengthened the firm’s capacity for client and wealth management work. That merger came less than two years after Menzies buffed up its accountancy arm by merging with Bolton Colby, the Heathrow-based firm.
Menzies is a member of the Praxity, the world’s largest alliance of independent accounting firms. Its 109 participating firms are located in 72 countries and garner a fee income of US$3.2 billion.
