Scottish accountancy firm Campbell Dallas has joined Baldwins, a market leading accounting, tax and advisory firm which is part of the CogitalGroup, an international business services group. Since the launch of CogitalGroup in December last year the group has been growing rapidly.

The deal will see all Campbell Dallas partners transfer across to Baldwins and the Campbell Dallas trading name will be retained.

Campbell Dallas Managing Partner Chris Horne said; “Joining Baldwins will allow us to increase our investment in the business, in particular technology, and continue to grow our market share. We are firmly focused on the owner managed business and entrepreneurial market, which is also the area of focus for Baldwins and the wider CogitalGroup, so there is a great deal of common ground in terms of strategy and culture.

“Going forward it will be very much ‘business as usual’ and we remain firmly committed to our four guiding principles for managing the business – happy staff, quality advice and service, happy clients and financial strength, but with our business now enhanced by the scale, investment capacity and specialisations within Baldwins and the CogitalGroup and the added benefits of being part of an international group.”

David Baldwin, a director at Baldwins, added; “Joining forces with Campbell Dallas will lead to further growth for both businesses. We are delighted to welcome Campbell Dallas to the Group. Campbell Dallas is widely regarded for its focus on the SME sector, and is an entrepreneurial, growth-oriented business.  We very much look forward to working together to grow the newly enlarged business”.
