Retirement creates further growth for the practice

Wilkinson and Partners continues to go from strength to strength as a result of our recent acquisition of Ilkley based accountancy firm, David Pullan and Co.

Founder of the firm, David Pullan, is retiring and his clients will now be serviced by our Ilkley team in our recently expanded offices. However, David is not 'hanging up his tax calculator' just yet as he will be working as a consultant to ensure his clients are transferred across in a seamless manner.

Oliver Wilkinson is the partner responsible for incorporating the David Pullan & Co clients into our practice. Oliver will be working closely with David to get to know his clients so we can best service their needs in the future.

Speaking about the acquisition, Oliver Wilkinson said, “We have known David for some time and are delighted that he has chosen Wilkinson and Partners to look after his clients following his retirement”. He goes on to say, “Both accountancy firms have been built on a foundation of providing a proactive and personal service to clients, a successful formula which we aim to continue with David's clients.”

David Pullan commented, “When planning for my retirement it was important that I found a suitable firm of accountants to take over my client base. The team at Wilkinson and Partners have a similar approach to their work and have a great reputation for forging long-lasting, professional relationships with their clients. I have no doubt my clients will benefit greatly from their services and expertise.”

The acquisition formally took place on 6 April 2020. From this date, former David Pullan & Co clients have been asked to contact Oliver Wilkinson at the Ilkley office on 01943 817045 or email
