NORTH East accountancy and wealth management firm Tait Walker has revealed a new name and new look as part of growth plans.

The Newcastle firm, which also has offices in Morpeth, Durham, Carlisle and Middlesbrough, has adopted the name of national accountancy association MHA to become MHA Tait Walker, while also taking on the brand of its global network Baker Tilly International. The new name and branding was unveiled at an event at Baltic in Gateshead yesterday, during which the Millennium Bridge was illuminated green and the new logo displayed on Baltic Square.

MHA is an invitation-only accountancy association founded in 2010 that currently has nine independent regional UK accountancy member firms in over 50 offices nationwide with a PS143m turnover.

Benefits of MHA membership include sharing knowledge, technological and systems support, better buying power, recruitment and training initiatives.

The directors said that, since becoming a member of MHA in 2011, MHA Tait Walker has helped shape the network into a collaborative and thriving association and it has also grown the local delivery of the services that the firm offers, helping to expanding the team from 110 to 165 members of staff.

Through MHA, Tait Walker also has membership to Baker Tilly International, the international network of accountancy firms.

Andrew Moorby, managing partner of MHA Tait Walker, said: "It has been fantastic to be a part of MHA for the last eight years and we are really excited to align our branding with the global brand. Our new brand seeks to demonstrate the breadth of resources and skills we can bring to help all our clients.

"Despite this new look we remain an independent North East business, with no changes to our local ownership, management or our commitment to service the business community in the North to the highest possible standard.

"We have been part of MHA since 2011 and we are simply seeking to emphasise the benefits of this to our clients."

The firm said it will continue to focus on the North and its existing clients, delivering services from its five offices across the North.

Mr Moorby added: "The new modern look better matches our commitment to making a difference for our clients, our team members and our communities through a local, personal relationship. We share knowledge and experience with other member firms on both a national and global scale, meaning that we can offer our clients the most up to date information and the best possible advice. We are looking forward to the year ahead, as we continue to grow and develop with our clients and our team. "

Despite this new look we remain an independent North East business
