Equiom has announced the acquisition of Eagle Consulting, an Inverness based professional services outsourcing firm with an international client base.

Established in 1997, Eagle Consulting offers a comprehensive suite of services that include, management and statutory accounting, payroll, tax and compliance services, direct debiting and treasury services and is the second largest BACS bureau in the UK.

Equiom’s Global CEO, Sheila Dean said of the news: ‘The acquisition of Eagle Consulting is an exciting one. The complimentary service lines will both broaden our accountancy offering for clients looking for a more comprehensive, fully managed solution and it will also see us established in a new key region. The UK is a central hub for international business activity and Equiom’s presence in this jurisdiction is crucial. As ever, I’d like to thank our equity partners LDC and our legal advisers Gowling WLG for their valued input and support throughout this acquisition project.’

Harry Hornby, Managing Director of Eagle Consulting added: ‘We are thrilled that Eagle Consulting has joined the Equiom Group. Equiom’s values and approach to business, relationships and people resonate strongly with our own and we are confident that Equiom will be the ideal long term partner for us and our clients. I look forward to working with the Equiom team across the Group’s jurisdictions and relish the new dimension this partnership will add to our services.’

Sixty-four staff members from Eagle Consulting will join the Equiom team with immediate effect and the company will begin the process of rebranding to Equiom in April 2017.
