November 2018

Russell Bedford's Manchester member firm, Hallidays, has announced significant firm growth through the acquisition of David Stonefield & Co. Ltd. Having built up his successful business, David Stonefield is preparing for his retirement by joining Hallidays for four years. David will work closely with Hallidays Director, Phil Jones, and the Hallidays team, to ensure his clients are fully supported throughout the transition and benefit from the wider range of business growth and support services that Hallidays offer. 

Speaking about the move David said: “I recently made the decision to reduce my working week gradually over the next few years and am delighted to announce I have merged my practice with Hallidays. Hallidays are a local firm whom I previously had strong connections with, initially through their Accountants Support Forum. They offer a professional service, with the additional support that is beneficial to both clients and myself.  Hallidays are an ideal choice to take over my practice and this will enable me to continue to look after my clients under the Hallidays umbrella." 

Phil Jones, Hallidays Director added: “We warmly welcome David and his clients to Hallidays. We pride ourselves on building strong relationships with our clients and really understanding their business, so we can provide the best possible advice and support to help them achieve both their personal and business goals.”
