Welsh independent accountancy and advisory firm, Broomfield & Alexander, has rebranded as MHA Broomfield Alexander in a move to maximise the benefits of its membership of the national accountancy association.

With offices in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea and Monmouth the firm has been a founder member of MHA, a national association of independent accountants and business advisers, since 2010.

The MHA association supports the sharing of knowledge and best practice across all sectors and opens up areas of specialist expertise to member firms.

With more than 50 offices MHA consists of nine member firms across the UK, each of which has a strong presence in its respective region.

In addition MHA Broomfield Alexander has access to Baker Tilly International, a worldwide network of almost 180 independent accountancy and business advisory firms across more than 130 countries.

MHA Broomfield Alexander has been providing clients with advice in accountancy, tax and business for more than a century. Last year, the growing business acquired Monmouth-based accountancy firm Agincourt Practice, expanding its office footprint to four across South Wales.

Ian Thomas, managing director at MHA Broomfield Alexander, said: “As a firm, we have operated as part of the MHA association for the past seven years - rebranding made perfect and positive commercial sense. We have done so from a position of strength and are confident that this alliance puts us in good stead for the future.

“Our clients will continue to be at the forefront of all that we do. Indeed, they will only notice the benefits that our association with MHA brings, such as the sharing of expert knowledge and best practice between colleagues locally, nationally and internationally.

“MHA is represented in the different UK regions by firms which are characterised by a strong, local presence and reputation. This reflects our own ethos of maintaining and enhancing our regional links in Wales, as well as continuing to support our clients who operate on a wider basis.”
